Leds and Resistors Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to connect 4 leds in series which I will place on my front panel. However, I'm confused as to which diagram I should follow. On this page it is suggesting that I should put the resistor right before the GND. On another site, the diagram shows that the resistor is placed right after the positive end. Does the placement of the resistor matter?

The placement of the resistor does not matter! You can put at near V+ or near ground, or in between. It is a series circuit.
