  1. Holy crap! I could have never figured that out without your help! Even still it took a couple attempts to read and find the right “content” to copy and paste:/ Thanks for your help!


  2. I tried this, but for some reason it just will not work! Tells me that the code that was provided wasn’t found on the page (so I guess it can find the page, just not the code!) Do you have any idea how to fix that?


      1. Yep, that’s what I did :/ Subject/Name of page is pinterest-c4b04.html and then the code that is in the HTML when I open it in notepad, just like your instructions – I think it just hates me. 😦 Oh well! Thanks anwyay.
