Inserting a Banner

There are two ways to insert a banner into your website for linking to a sponsor, a friend, or just to your favorite website. The first way is to get the html code of a banner and paste it into your page. The second option is to create your own banner. The following instructions describe how to get the html code for banners or how you can create your own banner.

Banner HTML code

Some websites have banner html code available to copy on a special page. This is usually found on pages like "Promote us", "Add us to favorites", "Icons and banners for your page", "For Webmasters" etc.

1. Copy the banner html code (eg by pressing Ctrl + C) ...

Create your own banner

If the banner you want does not have the html code available you can create it yourself by simply inserting an image with a link:
