Else users may need to wait some time until your homepage get loaded and have to scroll long way down if you've got somewhat lengthy posts. We have already discussed about jump break links and learnt how to customize the alignment of jump break earlier via How to Align Jump Break in Blogger post. As I needed to add needed to do customizations with it, I have managed to convert jump link which is a hyperlink into an image at last. Wanna know how?

If you are using jump breaks on your posts, you may like to give it more color to be match with your blog design as you prefer. Converting jump break link to a image is not a big deal or it doesn't increase pageviews for your content. But it's all about designing of your blog.
