Hi Dawn, All David did was make a link to his egg-o-gram. But you have to send it to yourself first, to get the correct url to link. The url you sent me just put me on the main, make an egg-o-gram page.
So, I made one myself, sent it to my personal email (I don't think ning email will work) and below the image was the link, or url. Mine looked like this: http://host.oddcast.com/holiday_inn_ws.swf?gDoor=109&gClient=26&gTopic=1&mid=1835384
and I can turn it into a nice looking link using the chain icon in the comment tool bar above. So I type the words I want to use,
then I select the type, click on the chain icon, and paste the url into the place provided. Try it! If it doesn't work, then I will make pictures to show you : ). Great work, Dawn- keep playing with it!
