I have this thing about convenience and when I came across this little hack for my blog template I had to check it out.  It’s a “back to the top” button.  The tutorial is easy enough to follow and there are 19 different buttons you can choose from…so it’s easy enough to customize the button to your liking and to your blog colors.  The hardest part was finding the coding you need to find in your template to insert the html codes you are given, but if I were a tad bit smarter…I would have used a html editor to begin with and not until the very end.  BEFORE YOU MODIFY YOUR TEMPLATE…MAKE SURE TO BACK IT UP!

Back to the Top Button

The html editor I use is: http://www.coffeecup.com/free-editor/  I find it simple to use.  Open the program up, select new HTML page, copy and paste your template into that screen removing what’s on the page first, and then click the edit tab, select ‘find’…put in the code you are looking for and the code will be highlighted in the document.

Have fun…it works!
