OK, so I'm spring cleaning the blog and realised I don't have the Mumsnet badge, which is a bit rude since I've been on this network for a bit. I assume I can't see it for looking, but where is the badge code?

Do you have your accpetance email from the mumsnet blogger team? There was a link in there for the badge smile

First you have to sacrifice 2 chickens and a small child. Then...

I've tried to put it on mine, following MN's instructions and it says it's an illegal code.

Netto, did you add it as a gadget?

NettoSuperstar Sun 20-May-12 13:55:16

Yes, I tried to anyway.
It says something like add your own gadget, and then I copy and paste the link for the badge, and it tells me it's an illegal codeconfused

NettoSuperstar Sun 20-May-12 13:55:52

I tried all the different sizes too, in case one was wrong.

Did you add a HTML gadget?

NettoSuperstar Sun 20-May-12 15:23:30

Erm, no idea!
Can you talk me through it please?

Tee2072 Sun 20-May-12 17:25:24

Netto, Blogger blog?

Tee2072 Sun 20-May-12 17:30:48

Netto, if it's Blogger, than you need to use the HTML/Java script gadget that is in the first list that appears when you click 'add a gadget' not the HTML gadget further down in the pop up menu.

Select that, add the script, and it should work.

NettoSuperstar Sun 20-May-12 17:53:26

Yes, blogger blog.
Which thing do I have to click first?
I'm rubbish with technology, and can't work it out at all.
I've been fiddling this afternoon, and still can't get it to work. <doh>

Go to layout.

You'll see 'add gadget', click on it. You'll get a pop up window. Scroll to the bottom of that list and you'll see 'HTML/Java Gadget'. Select it. Title it if you want or just leave blank and copy and paste badge code into larger box.

Did that make sense? About to have dinner but will be back later!

NettoSuperstar Sun 20-May-12 18:14:53

Will have a look later, in the middle of doing tonight's meal, but will look when I'm blogging it.
Thank you smile

Well I sacrificed the chickens but the small child refused to play dice.

Either way, I likely deleted the acceptance email aeons ago...

Well, you can email or report this thread and ask.

I don't think they have a link from the site anywhere.
