I'm not familiar with this certificate but I assume you can right click on it and save it as an image. ("Save Image As" or something similar) Once it is saved to your hard drive you can upload it to your site and then link to it in your HTML This will differ with each FTP client, etc so really we need more details. PM me if you want. Let me know what you are using if it's a "build it yourself" program, etc. and I'll try to help you out.

It is the banner for the lawn care business school that you get when you pass the coarse. It tells you to paste it to your sit but I dont know how to do that. Also I had my web site professionally done so I dont know if I can do this my self.

You will need access to the source code for sure. But the process works like this. Save the image to your hard drive, upload to your hosting account, link to it in the HTML with <img src="nameoffile.jpg" width="x" height="x" alt="your alternate text here" /> then upload your new html file as well.

I dont know what the banner is (like if it is supposed to link to your actual certificate, etc) but if this is the case, it requires a little more. Again, you need to access the source code regardless.

Contact the company that built the site and they will probably do it for you (for a fee). Or, if you aren't tied to them by a contract of some sorts, you can get someone else to do this for you. Hope this helps.

haha I apparently didn't write my code to where it would be visible

&lt;img src="blahblah.jpg" width="x" height="x" alt="alt text" /&gt;

Here is an example.

<a href="http://www.gopherforum.com/index.php?pageid=GopherHaul-Lawn-Care-Business-School&amp;graduate=f80c02211c6dc4baf3d42815f840ecb8" target="_blank"><br>
<img src="http://www.gopherforum.com/uploaded-files/images/school-logo-banner.gif" alt="" border="0">
</a>

The above code will create this:
<a href="http://www.gopherforum.com/index.php?pageid=GopherHaul-Lawn-Care-Business-School&graduate=f80c02211c6dc4baf3d42815f840ecb8" target="_blank">
<img src="http://www.gopherforum.com/uploaded-files/images/school-logo-banner.gif" alt="" border="0">
</a>

But you have to remember, you need to change your graduate id in there. In the example above it is "f80c02211c6dc4baf3d42815f840ecb8" but you will change the code with the code given to you.

Or you could let Steve host the image file ;)

I don't know anything about this certificate thing so I didn't know the file path etc. I tried to give a quick fix until you came to the rescues Steve. :D
