I put an image and link into my sidebar according to the FAQ answer on how to do so. It works initially. The first time I load my page I see the image. If I refresh it, the image disappears and all I'm left with is the link title. I put it in using a text widget.
This also happens with badges that I try to insert. All I see when I load my page is the text, not any of the graphics.
Why isn't it working after the initial page load?
