Image Widget Not Showing Up on Page

  1. I put my image URL in the image widget, and it showed up on the page. Now, two days later, all that shows up on the page is a square with a red X in it. What does this mean?

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

  2. I cannot see your blog as you have not linked your username to it or posted the URl to it. I suspect you did not enter the correct or complete image URL starting with http:// but cannot confirm that. See here please:
    images
    Uploading and inserting images: the three (plus one) link options

    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes. Then every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  3. Thanks, Timethief. Let's see if that worked.

  4. Looks like it didn't. Let's try again.

  5. It worked. Thanks again.

    I was missing a step. Before saving changes, I had to type in my website where it says "website" (automatically linked when you make comments).

    I'm still trying to figure out my image issue. The URL is correct in my media library. I'll look at the links you sent, and would appreciate further input.

  6. I see your image at the top of your sidebar.

  7. I can see it too.
