Title: I need help adding TMB Banner as a Signature in my blog posts
Post by: jadelouisedesigns on Nov 08, 2011 @ 04:09 PM
I've been trying to add one of the Top Mommy Blogs Banners as a Signature to appear at the bottom of all of my posts.
I've done this before with the Sumbleupon button and the live signature; but for some reason I cannot get it to accept the TMB banner!
I put in the HTML code in the correct spot and I get this message:
"Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
 XML error message: The element type "img" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</img>"."

So I look in the HTML and add a / in front of the image. That solved that problem but now the error message I get is:

"Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
 XML error message: The element type "a" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "< /a>"."

But THIS is the HTML code I'm trying to insert (and it DOES have < /a> at the end)
<a href="http://www.topmommyblogs.com/" target="_blank"></img src="http://www.topmommyblogs.com/directory/images//banners/tmb-468x60-slow.gif" WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="59" BORDER="0" alt="Top Mommy Blogs - Mom Blog Directory">< /a>

Any help PLEASE! I've searched the Blogger forums and can't find an answer; they just keep talking about adding signatures from another program or other items that don't address THIS Specific issue.

Thank you!!

What blog platform are you using?

I will move your post to the appropriate board so you will be more likely to find some help. Generally, anything that involves the functioning of your blog, you will want to consult your blog systems support or web designer if you have one.

I discovered the issue: It was requiring a "/" after the Image link and before the >[/url] at the end.

it is fixed and working now. Thankyou!
