    I gave you a link back. :)

    I hate deleteing Posts, especially when I’ve provided a link to it here in the forums as an example.

    I will remove it though if you want me to. Look at it this way, more exposure for when you run for office again. :)

    That’s when you find a rich millionaire who wants the influence his money will buy but wants to stay hidden in the background. :)

    Well apart from the inside goss on the political options of some, I tried the centre tags as suggested… and it seems to be a no go… conclusion thus far, image cannot be “centred” within text widget, at least not at this time… any further suggestion? or shall we close on this (take a look at the existing image in sidebar re alignment is default to left… I think it would be a neater arrangement to be “centred”, purely for the aesthetics?

    Daod – unfortunately I think you’re just gonna have to close this as an “it don’t work” thing.

    I’ve tried this many times with centering and have always failed.

    Before you do though, you could try resizing the image so it is a similar size to the sidebar. if you use height="size" and width=”size”` where “size” is a number of pixels you could make it so that you have a similar sized border either side of the image.

    Actually, I have used this method, and it has worked for me. As you would with the <center> tag, do with the paragraph tag, but only if the inline <…align=”center” /> didn’t work. Surround the <img…> tag with paragraph tags using the inline align property. Example, since that may be a mouthful.

    <p align=”center”><img src=”…”>< /p >

    As the post did not show the closing p tag correctly, type that last less than / greater than tag without spaces.

    You can see an example at the bottom of my blog here. I will delete the exaple in about a week.

    Just for reference, I’ve discovered that if you replace the first ‘<‘ bracket with a ‘& l t ;’ (without the spaces and the single quotes), you can get html to show up here on bbpress.

    Aye drmike,m I attempted that, however, it was still not showing up. Perhaps I needed to change all of my brackets to that…I will edit the post to make that happen.

    I have a problem with doing that in IE if that helps. Well, I did this morning.

    Tried using the same code to put a pic within a message and, well (I’m here ain’t I?), it does not work.

    Does it have anything to do with my being on wordpress.com and not on my own server or am I using the wrong code?

    Or am I reaaaaaaaaaaaly out in the proverbial left field? ;-)

    We’re all on WP.com. Anyone hosted on another site with the software gets run off to the correct forums.

    Must be since you didn’t point us at an example of what you tried to do and there’s no picture in your sidebar showing us what you did. :)

    Can you paste the exact code that you’re trying to use?

    I’ve done it on a number of blogs without any trouble at all.

    Ok folks, this originally started by asking how to place an image in a sidebar, some weeks ago… there have been many helpful suggestions, and a few that were not, and a couple of complete time wasters… however for all those who had a go at clarifying this, Thx…
    Of all the suggestions, the best and workable goes to member “Crosswalk” who posted this code
    <p align=”center”><img src=”…”>< /p >
    so folks… as I understand it… (1) upload an image to a new post (2) save the post (as draft), do NOT publish (3) copy the uploaded image path, and paste into a Text Widget using <p align=”center”><img src=”http://…” /> (4) place widget in preferred location (5) Save Changes ,a THat’s It… Congrats to Crosswalk for solving this once again, annd I trust others will find this useful… happy blogging…

    Actually you don’t even need to save the post as a draft. Once you get the picture up there, it stays there. you can even delete the post if you want to.

    Thx drmike. Additional thought, if I was to delete the draft, and then at some time in the future wanted to view the pic source (within wordpress) for deletion/removal from server/site/folder, how would I be able to locate? Just wondering/learning.

    daod – I keep a back-up of each blog image on my own computer. I also keep a post named images or headers in draft form on each of my blogs for the most recently used images. Once an article leaves my front page I delete the image form the post in question and from the images or headers draft. This works well for me because the nature of my blogs is such that it’s the written contecnt that is important and not the images.

    Can anyone help me with this? My favorite uploading place is having issues and won’t let me upload. I’ve now looked into the premium services at Photobucket and Fhlicker. Photobucket doesn’t have thumbnails for some odd reason. But at Fhlicker, the premium service says:

    # 2 GB monthly upload limit
    # Unlimited storage
    # Unlimited bandwidth

    Would that be enough space for me? On a good day I might upload 100-200 thumbnail images a day. And certain sets of pictures get lots of hits like wedding and baby pictures. With the amount of pictures I upload and the amount of hits they get, is 2GB enough?

    Daod, I would just use the Browse All tab on the file uploader.

    Nosy, that 21k image gallery of Kim Possible images was about 2 gigs. Average size was 480 by 360 pixels. Granted, it also created a number of different sizes upon uploading so you should even get more pictures in that amount.

    21k? You mean 21 thousand? You had 21 thousand images and the 2GB’s were enough?
