    How do I hyperlink a banner?

    How do I make the banner that I have on my site go to my homepage?

    Actually no. It has the address entered in twice on the link. Try it and see if you know what the problem is.

    That's what I have now. But it just has my home page put in twice on the link.

    I looked at your code, you don't have the "http://" part in the page source. Are you writing the html or is this some kind of tool you are using? If so leave change it to the below because it seems to be assuming all of your links are relative instead of absolute..

    You can't hyperlink the banner, only the URL.

    Why? Posters cannot use html in their posts, only VB code.

    I asked Sooth about this once, he said if all us could use HTML it would eat a lot more of JI.com's bandwith.

    I inputted the code thats in bold. The link works on the home page, but on the other parts of the site it does not. For the other pages it wants to take me to [url]http://thesportshookup.blogspot.com/2006/06/[/url]

    I'm working with my template on blogger.com. If I sent the template to you, would that be of any help?

    You left out the "http://" part of the link. When the browser didn't see it, it assumed the url was relative to your current location and just appended it to the current location. So [url]http://thesportshookup.blogspot.com[/url] became [url]http://thesportshookup.blogspot.com/thesportshookup.blogspot.com[/url]. I wasn't sure if the blogspot software had pulled out the "http://" or not though..
