Problem adding ROR button to homepage

 12:58 am on Mar 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

Is there a source for a good ROR button? I just made a ror.xml file for my site, but I can't seem to add a button to the homepage. Example.com provides the following code for the button:

<a href="ror.xml"><img src="http://www.example.com/rorinfo.gif" width="80" height="15" border="0"></a>

But addme.com seems to be totally dead. When I add this code all I get is an empty rectangle. When I click on the rectangle, I get a page of unformatted text consisting of all the code in my ror.xml file. Is that right?

FWIW, my homepage is written in validated XHTML1.0-transitional. And I don't know any coding languages besides HTML/XHTML.

I'm new at all this, so thanks for any help.

TigerFlag, welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com].

Your best bet may be to copy the graphic and save it to your own server and just call the image from there.

Thank you, I got it figured out. They had a different link to the image on another page and that one worked. I like your idea, though, of putting the image in my own /images file. I'll do that when I have the time.

Thanks again.
