I would like to create a custom button as a new component that will link to the "sign up page".
I can create the button image in Adobe CS and add the image to the html script that will point to the "sign up" page but do not know the code. Does anyone know how I can do this?
I have new readers that can't figure how to join the site and a "red button" should attract them. Maybe.
I have written an article how to join the site but new users just don't seem to find the obvious links under the log in name and when they go to create an account they don't see the "join up" link. How do you figure?

The Login component is not customizable in its present form. I would suggest bringing attention to the important information on your site by creating a sidebar component which links to the Reader Signup.
Here's how I would do that: Create a Web Page document (see this thread for a short intro).
Then create a Favorites component where you will add a link to the Web Page document you create, and add that component into your sidebar. These links tell you everything you need to know about Favorites:

Of course you could always create your own custom component using the image you created and link to the Reader signup that way too...
One tip, here's how you would make sure the content you put into your custom component only appears for users who have not logged in (if they have signed in then they don't need a reader account, they've already got one):
<-- Put your custom stuff here -->
Wrapping the content around those unless statements makes sure it is only seen by readers who have not logged in.
