Another way of putting the  HTML codes is thorough going ether to Lay -out and choose Add a new Gadget buttom then click HTML/Javascript.

<div class="bttimage-container">
<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="MINI-THUMB-URL1" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="BIG-THUMB-URL1" />
<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="MINI-THUMB-URL2" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="LARGE-THUMB-URL2" />
<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="SMALL-THUMB-URL3" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="BIG-THUMB-URL3" />
<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="SMALL-THUMB-URL4" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="BIG-THUMB-URL4" />
<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="SMALL-THUMB-URL5" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="BIG-THUMB-URL5" />
<a href="">
<img class="large-thumbnail feature" src="LARGE-THUMB-URL1" />


  • Replace with the url of your page/post where you want to land a certain link.

  • To add pics inside the image slider just replace MINI-THUMB-URL and LARGE-THUMB-URL texts with the URL of your image.

  • The URL for the SMALL-THUMB-URL and BIG-THUMB-URL in every set or box is the same. See blockquote below for an example. Or you can do it separately depending on your preferences.

<a href="">
<img class="mini-thumbnail" src="" />
<img class="large-thumbnail" src="" />


The last LARGE-THUMB-URL1 should be replaced with the URL of the default image that will appear on your slider.
