    I found some smilies that I’d like to use on my blog and I want to credit the creator. However, I don’t want to type “Smilies by So-and-So” in every post I put them in. One would think that the Links widget would do, but I already have a special page for links and I don’t think I can change the widget’s name to “Credits”. Any suggestion? Thanks!

    P.S. My blog’s at http://arizonad.wordpress.com
    P.P.S. Wonder if I should suggest a credits widget in the Ideas section.

    The blog I need help with is arizonad.wordpress.com.

    You could just make the images links to their source, like I do with all my images. That is considered acceptable for images in most circumstances.

    Thanks! I guess I’m so used to not seeing smilies themselves linked that I didn’t think of it. Though if I use more than 3, it might be easier to credit once at the end of the post.

    How does one link an image to its source?

    You put the image in your post (I use the visual editor). Then you click on the image to select it and add the link using the Links button, just as if it were text. Or you can put the link in when you first upload the image, in the line for Link Image To…just put the URL of the source page in there. If you do this, however, you’ll have to go back and edit it to make sure it opens in an external window, because the default is, that it throws people off your blog and takes them to the new page.
