HTML Text Widget Insertion
It is one of the most common things that I get asked about, how to insert an image into a sidebar, so I thought it was a great opportunity to make a clip about it. Just recapping, you will need to upload the image to your server in most cases. You could hot link if the image is already hosted elsewhere, although if that server fails then you image will not appear on your blog anymore.
You will need to write the HTML code also, that tells the server where the image is, and also what the URL of the clickable link is too Feel free to use this code here, just be sure to make the changes as to what your domain is and where the image resides on your server.
<p align=”center”><a href=”http://YourDomainOrAffiliateLink.com”><img src=”http://yourdomain.com/imagefolder/imagename.gif”></a></p>
So that is just how easy it is to insert an image into a sidebar, just by using a text widget in your WordPress admin area. See you back here next time for another WordPress Video Tutorial. Feel free to stop by Mindset Master and join our community in Google Friend Connect.
