012  You will need to upload these files to your server.

To add a professionally designed featured content box:

1. From your Blogger dashboard, navigate to Layouts and then Edit HTML.

2. Add the following javascript and style sheet link below right after the opening head tag of your blog:


<link charset='utf-8' href='../jon1012-smoothgallery-205a5d5/css/layout.css' media='screen' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/> <link charset='utf-8' href='../jon1012-smoothgallery-205a5d5/css/jd.gallery.css' media='screen' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/> <span id="preserve68c91f5ba4a64c469a52dbde125b1f50" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script src='../jon1012-smoothgallery-205a5d5/scripts/mootools-1.2.1-core-yc.js' type='text/javascript'/> <script src='../jon1012-smoothgallery-205a5d5/scripts/mootools-1.2-more.js' type='text/javascript'/> <script src='../jon1012-smoothgallery-205a5d5/scripts/jd.gallery.js' type='text/javascript'/>





3. Next, you will need to add the following section code below to where you want the featured content box to appear. You can do this by adding a new HTML/JavaScript widget or paste it within your HTML section of your layout.


<span id="preservef5af1b53d44447a484990ddb3d07ef84" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript"> function startGallery() { var myGallery = new gallery($('myGallery'), { timed: true }); } window.addEvent('domready',startGallery); </script></span> <div class="content"> <div id="myGallery"> <div class="imageElement"> <h3>The CCNA Syllabus - Your steps to becoming a Certified Cisco Network Associate</h3> <p>Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot...</p> <a href="http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le0/le9/learning_certification_type_home.html" title="open image" class="open"></a> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/ccnasyllabus.png" class="full" /> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/ccnasyllabusmini.png" class="thumbnail" /> </div> <div class="imageElement"> <h3>Cisco Webex</h3> <p>Join WebEx online meetings in seconds when you're away from the office—no account required...</p> <a href="http://www.webex.com/apple/" title="open image" class="open"></a> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/ciscowebex.png" class="full" /> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/ciscowebexmini.png" class="thumbnail" /> </div> <div class="imageElement"> <h3>The Cisco Learning Network</h3> <p>Join others in discussions, find useful documents for downloads, check out the Cisco Learning Network blog, interact with others in the community...</p> <a href="https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/index.jspa" title="open image" class="open"></a> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/learningnetwork.png" class="full" /> <img src="http://ccnacentral.info/ccentral-featured/learningnetworkmini.png" class="thumbnail" /> </div> <div class="imageElement"> <h3>Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router - WRT54G2</h3> <p>Your Price $44.99 - The Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router is really three devices in one box.

012  The above featured content box is just an example from CCNA Central. You will have to edit the text and images.

4. You should preview your blog first to see if all codes have been implemented correctly. If so, save your template and you’re finished.
