Adding a photo to sidebar
Is there a way to add a photo to my sidebar?
Yes, add a new text widgit to your sidebar.
Upload the picture you want into your wordpress gallery.
Make sure the size of the photo will fit into the sidebar. Say, like 180-200 pixels wide.
Copy the url to the picture.
Open your new text widgit from your dashboard.
Use the image html code around your url…
‘<img src=”YOUR URL HERE”
Accept changes to your widgit.
Refresh your blog.
Your photo should be there.
Damn, the last part of the html code didn’t post….
it is ‘
sorry, forgot the backtick
`<img src=”YOUR URL HERE”
xtap59 seems to be having trouble getting the full code to post.
It is < img src=”your url here” > but omit the first and last spaces (leave the one between “img” and “src”

I am technically challenged and for some reason this is not working. Any suggestions?
I did get the last post from panaghiotisadam to work. Thanks!
I am trying to post an image award and do not know if I do it the same as above and how to get the url
@judicreations: Please be more specific. In a post or in the sidebar? Have you uploaded the image?
I would like to add an “award” image into the sidebar. To upload the pic do I use the WRITE and then upload it and save it? I have done that. I read the instrutions above to copy the url but I’m not sure what that would be either.
“copy the url to the picture” I don’t understand that part…what is the url of the picture..how do I determine that?
But there have been some recent changes in the uploader: the URL won’t automatically show up anymore unless you’ve set it so in Settings > Media > Default media links.
Go to your post editor, click Add an Image, click Media Library, click “Show” for the particular image, click “File URL” to get the URL.
That’s a good point, thanks.
Thank you…panaghiotisadam and raincoaster..it worked! Whew. Thank you for all your help…I thought I would never get it!
