Linking an image in side bar to another site.

  1. I want to link an image in my side bar so when the image is pressed it links to another site. How do I do that please?

  2. Whoops! My site is;

    mature blog

  3. Ah, thanks TT. I knew I'd done it before but I couldn't remember how. Brilliant. :)

  4. When you put your image into a text widget put the http:// link into the field where it says,
    "Link URL__________________________
    Enter a link URL or click above for presets."

  5. I reviewed this http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/
    But it does not say how to get the Text widget to recognize that I am putting in HTML versus text. It just displays my http://______ as text. Is it supposed to automatically detect web addresses, or do I need to do something special?

  6. You need to put in actual code, with code tags, not just links. Like:

    <a href="http://raincoaster.com">the greatest website in the known space-time continuum</a>

  7. This is the general link model:
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>

    You have to type the anchor text that you want to link to first and then highlight it with your mouse before you click the link (chain) icon.

  8. OK. I think I got it figured out.

    Just for clarification for other forum readers:
    Your issue is different from the original poster's question about linking an image to another place online.

    If you want the image itself to link somewhere in the internet, then you don't need to make a separate link with link text.

    If you are making a text widget with link text, then use:

    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>
