  • Hi wyattsmommie,


    Here's how to add a glitter text graphic:

    Click the 'My CafeMom' tab.
    Click the 'Add A Widget' button underneath your profile picture.
    On the left of the CafeMom Widget Directory page, you will see categories.
    Click the 'Graphics + Sparkle Text' category.
    Go to the second page.
    Click on 'Learn More' beneath 'Glitter Text by RockYou'.
    Click the 'Add This Widget' button.
    On step 1, click on the link to go to the rockyou.com site to create your glitter text.
    Create your glitter graphic and follow the steps to copy your code.
    Once you have copied your code, return to your CafeMom account.
    Paste the code into the 'Paste Code Here' box.
    Click 'Save Widget'.

  • I usually highlight the pic I want and copy it on the rich text widget. Works for me.

  • your best bet is to copy/paste into a rich text widget. Not all graphics will copy though.


    When you are uploading an animated graphic from your computer, you must first do so to a photo sharing service like photobucket.com. it's free to sign up for and invaluable if you upload a lot of graphics. Once the photo is is uploaded choose the direct link and paste that into the url tab in the add a photo pop up.



    Finally if you have added a url to the pop up ( not the field) and it is showing the code not the graphic, try clicking the edit button on the widget and saving it. Sometimes this will bring up the graphic. HTH if you need more help you can message me.
