How To Create Rollover Images in Blogger

Posted by Lasantha Bandara on October 16th, 2009 File Under : html, image19 Comments

A rollover image is an image that changes to some other image when you or your customer rolls the mouse over it.

To add a rollover effect to your images use the code below.

<a href="IMAGE-DESTINATION-URL"><img src="IMAGE-1-LINK" onmouseover="this.src='IMAGE-2-LINK'" onmouseout="this.src='IMAGE-1-LINK'" /></a>

IMAGE-1-LINK : The original image link

IMAGE-2-LINK : The rollover image link

To get a good understand look at the example below.


<a href=""><img src="" onmouseover="this.src=''" onmouseout="this.src=''" /></a>

    This is the most efficient explanation for a simple-to-implement rollover for use on Blogger that I've seen thus far.

      Go to your blog design and click "Header description" or any place that you want to paste the code in. Then a pop-up window will appear. Click "Edit H.T.M.L." and paste the code.

    Is there a way to make this work in the template? Everytime I paste it into the template and save it, it changes my " to ' and my ' to &apos;.

    So I end up with:
    href='IMAGE-DESTINATION-URL'><img src='IMAGE-1-LINK' onmouseover='this.src=&apos;IMAGE-2-LINK&apos;' onmouseout='this.src=&apos;IMAGE-1-LINK&apos;'
