    shalom,
    i would like to add a photo to my side bar. is that possiable, i didn't find this option when looking at the widget list.

    The blog I need help with is utopianfragments.wordpress.com.

  2. Use a text widget and paste the HTML code for the picture in there.
    Please tell me if I need to clarify.

    yes lora, i need a lariying.
    i know what is the txt widget but what about this html code for picture. i have the photo on my computer, does that change anything. and otherwise if it is on my webpage, can i do something to put it on the sidebar too.
    Thank you very much

  4. First you upload to image to your wordpress.com account or you can upload it to photobucket or something similar to upload images. Then you look for the Direct Image Link like this one: http://lorawow.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/grass.jpg
    To find it, go to your dashboard => media => click the image => Direct image url = File url

    Then you can use this HTML code:
    <IMG SRC="(Direct Image Link here)" WIDTH="(Width here)" HEIGHT="(Height here)" ALT="(Text when moving over the image here)">

  5. Hm. Does the widget auto-resizes the image so it fits in the sidebar?

    that is good. i think i am almost there.

    but it don't show up
    <IMG SRC="http://utopianfragments.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/premio-dardos-small.jpg" WIDTH="(Width here)" HEIGHT="100" ALT="Thank You Bryan">

    what have i done wrong???

  7. You didn't fill in a Width

  8. Also the link appears to be wrong, try re-uploading it. WordPress has some trouble with uploading images lately I noticed.

    @lorawow: Better confine yourself to questions you can answer correctly.

    well, it is kind of fun any how. thank you pana, and thank you lora.
    it still don't work but i think there might be a problem with the wordpress, maybe something to do with the changes just happend now in the widget page??

    or could the photo be too big.. what size can it be?

  14. It just isn't uploaded correctly, as a I said before WordPress is having some issues I think.
    If you go to this link http://utopianfragments.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/premio-dardos-small.jpg you image should appear but it doesn't, that's why it doesn't show up.

    Delete it and upload it again.

    @utopianfragments: the URL is ok, your image shows up fine, the correct code is the one I gave above, and lorawow doesn't know what she's talking about.

    i do not think so.. i was trying to change the size of photo while we were talking here, and had to upload a new image then. i have chacked it out now and it does work.

    hey pana, that is o.k. but i use now the code you gave me.... can you see what is wrong with it?

  18. Wtf, the image isn't showing for me at all.

  19. The new link is working for me. =)

    @utopianfragments: I looked at the source code of your page, and there's no text widget with that code in it. Did you click Save Changes after pasting the code in a text widget?

  21. Pana, stop ignoring me and tell me why you think I don't know sh*t about this.

  22. utopianfragments

    yes. but... like i say. the whole page has changed. there is a save button on the widget itself, in the side bar. but not that old 'save changes' button.

  23. panaghiotisadam

    Yes I know. Paste the code then click that "Save".

    do you mean this at the end... it is there. the first code here is the one you posted, the 2nd i put in my last comment (i somehow forgot to copy it befor pasting) and the last is as it is now.
