    How do I simply put an image in my sidebar and add a link to it?

    See http://blog.sustainablemiddleclass.com/ (Obama image) for an example of what I want to do.

    Please search the FAQ before posting here. Most often the answer is already there.

    Wow. I thought I was fairly decent at computers, wpvstp, but these instructions are confusing and circular and in some cases incomplete. Is there not a simple:

    Step 1
    Step 2
    Step 3

    …. anywhere that I can follow?

    This is the image I uploaded: http://www.moneyedpoliticians.com/Front%20Cover-75dpi-JPEG.jpg

    It now resides in a page, I think, somewhere, but I want it on the sidebar.

    I have to agree with you that WordPress’ FAQ aren’t always complete, let alone step by step.
    The image you uploaded does not reside on a page, although it may seem like it. It does reside on your blog. All you need to do now is to put this code in your sidebar text widget:
    <a href="URL OF WHERE YOU WANT TO LINK TO"><img src="http://www.moneyedpoliticians.com/Front%20Cover-75dpi-JPEG.jpg"></a>Put in the correct URL for your link and it should work.

    Tanks very much. Finally got it. Now it’s time to go back to programming school!
