Linking an image to another sites URL

  1. I want to link an image to a site (for a blog hop) so that when you click on the image it takes you to that site. I have done it before but I cannot remember how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. If you mean an image in a post or a static page, see here:

  3. I think last time, I did it from the widget area and the image was in the sidebar. But as I say, I can't remember how to do it. But thank you for the link to the other page. That's useful as well. :)

  4. If you need it in the sidebar, you upload it via Media > Add New, click Edit once it's uploaded, and copy the File URL.
    Then you go to Appearance > Widgets, add an Image widget, paste the File URL in the Image URL field, paste the website URL in the Link URL field, save.
    Or you can use code in a Text widget - see here:

    To avoid problems with bad browser versions if you use an Image widget, make sure the original isn't wider than your sidebar (in your case, maximum 250 pixels).

  5. Ah thanks, Justpi. I think I've got it now. I'll nip over and try it. :)

  6. Yes, that's done it. Thank you so much, Justpi.
