In order to do something like this. You must have HTML. This tutorial will only show you the HTML to stuff like that you see on the screenshots. Now, I've been seeing people making download buttons on their submissions. And I find it nice! Awesome. So! I wanna tell you guys, how to do it :D Okay. What you need is very very simple. Copy this code onto the submission author's note:
hover text goes here
Okay. notice that there are three things that said "page URL goes here","image url goes here" and "hover text goes here". This three things are what you need to fill in. And it's very easy. Page URL --------------------------------------------------------- For this, you need to go to the page you want other people to go. Make sure it's not an image URL. That's because this is NOT!!! Anyway. You can give them a link to anywhere. Like your blog, your submissions, your threads or anything. Like let's say you're unable to upload the file to GameBanana. You paste the page url there. So that they can go to an available download. Image URL --------------------------------------------------------- Now. For the image URL. This is basically an easy step. You can go to [Google](google.com.sg "Google") or any other place that u can find button images. Buttons like "download now, download here, found here". Then people will click that so that they can download what they want because the upload to GameBanana is unavailable. Hover Text --------------------------------------------------------- Hover text is well, nothing. You don't need to copy or paste anything. Hover text is when you put your mouse there onto the image then a text comes up in a small box. And I'm sure you've seen it before. You just type in anything. So the downloader knows where it leads to. Don't type in any tricks. --------------------------------------------------------- Okay. So once you've done pasting the page&image urls and the hover text, you're good to go. Oh! And one more thing I want to tell you, if you don't want the code to activate and show people the image to your download, click "Code Block/Code". So that the code becomes a sentence rather than an image. And also that the link will be cut off. Then people will not go there. It's something like I did for the HTML Code above. The code that I typed out is green, that means I blocked the code. The reason I block the code is for you guys to copy that code and paste it onto the author's/readme notes. --------------------------------------------------------- Okay. So this tutorial is done. Have fun with all this image links and what-not. YAY! :D Note: I have an improved version tutorial. If you want an improvement on this tutorial, well heads up! Cuz' now the improved version is here! To go to the improved version,

    @napoleOn99 - ummm...the reason the image URL you're using will not workis because you can't use imageshack as a website to have the url. It just won't work for me either. I'm sorry about this, but you have to find other images.

    Well, if you want an improved tutorial,

    Maybe you can't read properly. So you should ask someone to help. Or find other tutorials on GameBanana.

    Bad grammar. When writing a tutorial, your grammar must be formal. Not like using "u" instead of "you", "cuz" instead of "because", etc.

    As Logan Dougall said, it's just as easy as using _< a href="link here" >< img src="link to image here" >< /a >_, but you write the tutorial this long like it's a really hard thing to do.

    PS: Why I can't use code tag in comments :S
