Any way to place pic
Was wondering if there was a way to place a “static” pic, to the side bar? pardon my novice ignorance…
use a text widget. don’t worry, everyone was once a newbie.
Thx sulz, appreciated
Tried your suggestion re using a “Text Widget”, how do I actually get to upload an image from my C: drive, and size it correctly? derr? pardon my ignorance. When I insert widget to sidebar, then select “configure” It seems there is no way to insert a pic?
First optimize (consult FAQ) and size the picture on your computer so it’s not so huge it’s going to create problems. Then create a post and use the “browse” button to locate the picture on your computer. Upload the picture into the post. Copy the code then paste it into a sidbar widget and save it.
You can find a FAQ on uploading pictures here. Only difference would be that you don’t have to publish the post after you upload the picture. Just use the URL of the picture in your text widget.
Hope this helps,
Thx for your help thus far… I followed the steps you’ve suggested, though the pic does not show in the side-bar widget (Text) wher I have posted the URL…. just the path is showing… please check and re-advice what’s not happening…
You need to put the link inside an image source tag:
< img src = “http://daod.wordpress.com/files/2006/07/sm_saruman.jpg” >
Remove the spaces in order for it to work.
To make sure it’s XML correct, you have to add in a slash mark right before the last > mark.
< img src = “http://daod.wordpress.com/files/2006/07/sm_saruman.jpg” />
Annoying, ain’t it? ;)
Ah – that I *didn’t* know. Thanks, drmike!
Not a problem. I have to catch myself on that as well since I’m still not used to using it.
<br />marks as well while I’m thinking of it.
Um – I just went into my text widget and added that trailing slash and it lost the entire line, which meant the pic was gone. Was there supposed to be a space before the trailing slash?
bump to drmike
Yes, it whould be “ending quote-space-trailing slash-closing bracket”.

Worked for the sidebar as well.
Got it. Now I’m XML correct (whatever the heck THAT means)
Beats me but it’s important to some folks around here. :)
Yo drmike (and others input), Thx for the advice and the lessons, though, it took awhile to get a result, i.e. a pic into side-bar widget… but heh, much appreciated… now I’m sure most of the XML language stuff went over/pass me, but sounds as if you others got some learning from the query, so we all got what was needed… well done drmike…
Now let me add a little, can the image be “centred” in the widget?
I’m not sure but try < center> IMAGE < / center>
Agreed, either surround it with center tags or put in a align=”center” bit to the tag. (I think we can do aligns here)
<center><img src=”http://vivianpaige.wordpress.com/files/2006/06/me200.jpg” /></center>
<img src=”http://vivianpaige.wordpress.com/files/2006/06/me200.jpg” align=”center” />
I certainly hope no one is using my picture on their blogs :)
