Tutorial: Adding Follow button to your blog

Blogged by: Kitty on Wednesday, June 01, 2011   Facebook comments: comments

This is a relatively easy tutorial on how to add the Follow button into your blog.

Step 1
Open your text editor (e.g. Notepad) and type on this code:

<a href="http://www.blogger.com/follow-blog.g?blogID=YOUR-BLOG-ID" target="_blank"><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/2rppgjk.jpg" border="0" title="Follow Me on Blogger" /></a>

* You can remove the code for the follow image if you don't want to include it

Replace the YOUR-BLOG-ID text with the ID of your blog. Your blog ID can be found from your dashboard:
BLOG ID

Step 2
Copy the code above and paste it into your Blogger HTML template, anywhere you want the link to appear. Save!

ah it doesn't work for me, when i click on it there is an error

@Wild Vibe, what error is it? Please make sure you change the BlogID to your blog's ID.

It says, The following errors have been found blogID: 17590388818818948628

But i replaced the text 'YOUR BLOG ID' with my blog ID

But the link of my blogger profile is http://www.blogger.com/profile/17590388818818948628

oh and now i found out that there is an errorcode, it is bX-epz0yf

@Wild Vibe, that is not your blogID, that is your profile ID. Blog ID can be found when you go to the settings for the particular blog. For example when you go to the Posts section, look at the address bar and you'll see your BlogID

Thank you so much! it works now ah i've been searching for this for soo long! :D

It says the URL has illegal characters .

I changed the YOUR-BLOG-ID to my Blog ID .


@Lilly, when you go to your blog's dashboard you will see something like http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=2931803574273180099.

The string of numbers you see in your address bar is your blog ID.

It wont let me do it, it keeps saying "URL contains illegal charaters" any ideas?

@Lovely, can you show me the URL?

However, if you choose to pay via (international) bank transfer, be aware that you may be charged for the transfer service.

Other important information

Throughout the designing process, I may need to refer back to you for questions/opinions so do check your email frequently. This is to ensure the design can be done as soon as possible.

Depending on the design, your template make take up to over 1 (one) week to finish. You will be informed once the template is done.

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.
