This post is for our many families who have their own blogs and are looking for ways to help!
A quick, fantastic way to help CCAI requires only a few clicks of your mouse. If you take a look at our sidebar, you will see a CCAI blog button with some text code beneath it. If you would like to display our button on your own blog, all you need to do is:
[Sidenote: CCAI uses WordPress, so this will be explained in WordPress language. If you are using Blogger, please adjust as needed. If you have trouble, please let us know!]
Step 1: Highlight and copy the code underneath the CCAI button.
Step 2: Go to your Dashboard and look under, “Appearance”, in the column on the left hand side of the screen. Hold the cursor over, “Appearance,” and click on, “Widgets”. You will then find a list of WordPress “Available Widgets”. Find the “Text” widget for arbitrary text/HTML.
Step 3: Click on the “Text” widget and drag it over to the side column, titled, “Main Sidebar”. Position it wherever you would like it to show up. On our page, we have placed it between our “Categories” and “Archives”.
Step 4: Click the drop-down arrow of the “Text” widget. You will see a “Title:” box and a blank text box. You may title the widget, “CCAI website,” or, “Visit CCAI,” if you would like, but it is not necessary. In the blank text box, paste in the text code you copied from our blog button. Click “Save” and visit your main blog page to make sure the CCAI button is where you want it.
Please let us know if you are having trouble placing the CCAI button on your blog.
