    Hi, please can someone advise me on how to get a picture in my links section where I have a link to http://www.selfdiscovery.co.za. I would like a picture link there.
    Thanks
    Allan

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

  2. Hi, Allan :)
    How to insert a link with a picture ( copy-paste the following code(see:Practice) on the page (HTML) ( Or you can put something like that (see:Theory) into a text-widget (sidebar))

    Practice:
    <a target="_blank" href="http://uplofile.free.fr/rep5/31606612selfdiscovery.png">
    <img src="http://selfdiscovery.co.za/" /></a>

    Theory:
    <a target="_blank" href="link-adress">
    <img src="picture-adress" /></ a>

    Hope it's gonna be OK & sorry not to explain more, but I'm only a frenchy-mouse who's doing the best she can ;-)

  3. Sorry, to put it on your page, here is the good one:
    <a href="http://selfdiscovery.co.za/"><img alt="" src="http://uplofile.free.fr/rep5/31606612selfdiscovery.png" title="selfdiscovery.co.za" class="alignnone" width="400" height="115" /></a>
    The other one (widget use) is okay.
    Sorry again, have a nice day :)

  4. (text)widget use :
    <a target="_blank" href="link-address"><img src="picture-address" /></a>
    Here we are( at late ;)

    Hi lilmaouz
    Thanks for your time in helping me here.
    Have an amazing day.

  6. WordPress also has that brand-spanking-new image widget - http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2009/09/29/image-widget-plus-support-news/

  7. You're welcome, Allan :) I saw the result, you did it quite right :)) ...But the picture is too small for a page use, and too big for the sidebar :-(
    So, here is the HTLM-code to get the picture with a whole page width (468 wich is the same width you already uploaded, so you can replace it if you want)
    and then, below, a new code for widget use with the good width also, wich seems to be 185 or something ;-)
    (PS: on your page, you first must choose the HTLM-mode)
    Page:
    <a href="http://selfdiscovery.co.za/"><img alt="" src="http://uplofile.free.fr/rep5/133045596selfdiscovery.png" title="selfdiscovery.co.za" class="alignnone" width="468" height="135" /></a>
    Sidebar:
    <a target="_blank" href="http://selfdiscovery.co.za/"><img src="http://uplofile.free.fr/rep5/55870874selfdiscovery-sidebar.png" /></a>

    Or, if you prefer to stay on visual mode on your page this is the link of the hosted picture (big one):
    http://uplofile.free.fr/rep5/133045596selfdiscovery.png

    It's my pleasure, don't worry. Bye bye, Allan:-)

    What I am worried about is those links:

    "Free web-site traffic generator"
    "Get 1 Million Hits, FREE!"
    "$7 method of making money"

  9. Hello, panaghiotisadam :) Where did you see that ? The links are pictures that I uploaded on upfile, so if I did something wrong, please explain to me. Thanks by advance :)

    Hi lilmaouz! I'm talking about palmtreelifestyle's blog, not yours.

    Hi panaghiotisadam
    I have removed the said above, I take it we are not allowed to have such links.
    If so, I do appologise.

    Hi lilmaouz, I tried that last code, and cant see the difference. But I will look at that link.
    Thanks again.
    Blessings

    @palmtreelifestyle: I hope you're not apologizing to me! I'm not staff, I'm just a volunteer, and I thought I'd better warn you.

    As for the image in your sidebar, lilmaouz's last code won't make any difference because it's got no width indication, so the image is inserted in real size (468px). In the theme you're using, maximum image width for the sidebar is 150px. So the code should be:
    <a href="WEBPAGE_URL_HERE" target="_blank"><img src="IMAGE_URL_HERE" alt="DESCRIPTION_HERE" width="150" /></a>

    But lilmaouz is right: this image isn't really fit for the sidebar. It'll work as a link alright, but when downsized so much the text on it will be illegible.
