Ask Me Monday #2-Scrolling Text Box

I get several questions asking how to do technical things such as number comments and I am sure there are more of you that want to ask but are too shy. Last week I posted my first Ask Me Monday.

Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment below asking me any technical blogging questions OR any more personal questions about me or my family. If you've always wondered something about me-just ask!

This week I will be telling you how to get your buttons to scroll on your sidebar. If you don't want buttons to take up all of the space on your sidebar, you can have them scroll like mine do.

Go to dashboard and then layout.
Go to the HTML box where you put your buttons.
Copy this code and paste it at the top of the box:

Then place all of the buttons that you want in the scroll box.
After you're done adding buttons, copy this code and put it after the last button that you added:

After you've done this, you can change the size of the box and how fast the buttons scroll. You can change the numbers where it says width="160" or height="200". The higher the number, the larger the box. If you want it to scroll faster or slower, you can change the number where its says scrollamount="7".

If you have any questions while installing these codes, please let me know. Also, leave me a comment or feel free to email me with any other questions for next week.

Pin It!

Thanks for sharing. I am working on a blog make-over and am not sure if I will use this feature or not but it is pretty neat.
Two things I was interested in was numbered comments and on your side bar (this is huge and maybe too big to do on my own) you have two boxes that take up the entire column and then it is divided below...I'm envious!

Happy Monday!

Oh thank you thank you thank you! This will come in so handy!

I too, was also wondering how to get a 3-column blog. I tried the tutorial on but it didn't work for me. It made my original 2 columns spread apart as if to make room for a third column, but there was no third column to be found. I spent the better part of an hour trying to get it to work with no luck.
