I have tried putting a badge on two different sites and I click on them but still nothing happens. While I agree that the points are not that important, whenever you don't get ones that you have worked for they do seem to become important. Thanks for any feedback.

You can open an email account on Gmail and put up a blog. Or, you can try going through your mail options and post on signature page, as I did. It will post on all emails you send" I am a member of diabetic connect". This is on my yahoo email account.
Hope this helps, remember to go to mail options, and look for settings for signature.

I have been curious about the badge and link sites. I really didn't know how to use them. I'm glad you made the post. At least now I have an idea as to how to use them.

Not all sites will allow you to post a link back to another site. For example, MySpace blocks all links to sites like ours because they see them as competition.

What sites have you tried to link from?

One was a genealogy website on Tribal pages…wasn't sure it would link properly so tried it on another website called Synthasite.

Didn't try to put it on any more after those two didn't work because I was afraid I might be doing something wrong…Thanks for replying.

I don't know about the Tribal pages, but I checked out Synthasite. And it works fine. Just use the HTML option from the Content menu on the right-hand side. Then paste the code from the badge into the HTML window. It should work fine.

Make sure after the badge is live on your site, you have to click on the badge to get your points. If everything is set up correctly, you will link to Diabetic Connect when you click on the badge.

I have put the badge on the website…it is visible and I have clicked on it and come right to Diabetic Connect…nothing happens in the way of getting any points. I have done this not once on Synthasite but twice on different sites I have and still nothing happens. I also did it on my Tribal pages site and again the badge is there, I click on it and it brings me right to Diabetic Connect…but no added points. Am I still not doing something right???

OK. Well if you'll send me a message or post here the website address where your badge is posted, I'll have our tech team check it out. We'll make sure you get your points.

Sorry about that.

Well, for some reason the piece of the HTML code that tracks which member posted the badge was missing from your badge.

Not sure how that happened, but we got it fixed. You should have your points now.
