Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

[REBLOG] How to get a profile – with a pretty link in your menu and everything.

Reblogged from Lisa (Fic Talk):

This is what you'll get:



Yes, I don’t remember much about html. I’ve been playing around with web pages 5 years ago, so figuring it out took me a while. But things are slowly coming back. I know nobody will read it without pretty pictures, so I’ll provide them, damn it. See how much I love you? (not really, I just don’t want to keep on following strangers, so do me a hugest favour and organize a profile!).


*WARNING: I’m not certain how it’ll work out on other themes. Details may vary.


1. Step one – create a post that will act as your profile.


Just a normal text post. You done? Good. Publish it.


2. Step two– time to add some html code.


Go to your settings.


Open a 'blog’ tab.




Scroll down to:




 Click on:



Now, don’t be afraid. Find this bit. (just ctrl+f -> type ‘menu’; it'll take you to the right place)





Now, this is the code you’ll need:



                    My profile (or whatever you want the actual words to be)



So you need a link to your earlier profile post. Find it. Go to your blog page, open this particular post in a new window and copy url.


You end up with something like this:


                    My profile


Now, take that whole piece of code and put it there:









Don’t forget to save:




Now your page should look like this:



Once you click the button it’ll take you to that ‘profile’ post.






There. Now you get a pretty, pretty button consistent with your page and I don't get a feeling like I'm following random people (or being stalked by random people... )
