Ok, im not really good with h-bridge termings i will just post the instructions from the original tutorial here.i dont have male header pins(impossible)to find hence i wanted a direst connection.
you will understand more below

in the above picture you can see the header pins are to be connected to pins 2 & 15(sensor input) and pins 7 & 10(input)
later in the tutorial 4 wires are cut and the following instructions are given

--- Quote ---Once done, cut fivefour 5 cm long wires and add molex connectors to each using the method given at www.societyofrobots.com/electronics_wire_connector.shtml Solder two of these wires to the 1K resistors. From these wires we will get high or low inputs from the sensors to drive the motor Solder the remaining two wires to the red wire of the battery cap.
--- End quote ---
now these positions are seen below the ones to the battery cap are connected to pins 7 & 10 and the others to the latter.

my question is can i solder(join) pins 7 & 10 to 8 & 9 as it is to the + terminal of battery and solder pins 2 & 15 directly to the resistor to ease my work and hence not use header pins.The diagrem initially posted describes my plans on soldering please confirm that

P.S:i will ONLY use it as a black line follower.

If You're asking if you can solder directly to the pin and skip the header - then yes, You can.

Thanks alot i will solder them directly to the pin,One thing i dont understand is why pins 7 and 10 are connected to (+) terminal(vcc) and usually its input from sensor array.Could you tell me

I already partially explained it in one of my previous posts. Also, datasheet is Your friend, it explains it very well.

However, if You want to be spoon-fed, here it is ;D In Your application intention is to have each motor spinning only one direction (one clock-wise, another counter-clock-wise), to achieve that author decided to clamp one side of each H-Bridge HIGH (keep them constantly ON), that causes motor to spin to the desired direction whenever the other side of H-Bridge is OFF (internally connected to the GND). When top side (due to sensor signal) is switched ON, both sides of motor get equal voltage, hence potential voltage across motor terminals becomes 0V, hence motor stops.

It would be useful for You to better understand how H-Bridge works:

thanks alot,most people tell me that pin 7 and 10 are usually for sensor input butthe author connected it to vcc,you explained me why.Thanks alot im ready to solder it that way and let me keep my fingers cross. :)
