    I’ve used a pic from a professional photographer as today’s header pic and would like link it to his site using a widget (click through) other than the standard blog roll widget – I’ve tried the text widget but all I get is text –

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

    Have you tried creating an HTML link in your text widget? The standard format for links is as follows:Link Text

    tried that micah by just copying and pasting the site address – but all I get in the widget is the address text, not the actual link

    You can use an image widget or a link in a text widget. IMO the image widget is the best choice.

    What I would do is create a thumbnail and place it in an image widget.
    If you don’t want to do that then use the text widget.
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>

    Sorry Peter, I keep formatting my code wrong. What you’re seeing is not the actual code.

    Go ahead and use timethief’s links she gave.

    Not to worry. We all have wwird days and I tend to have more than most. When frustrated remember to laugh, as it releases endorphins we all desperately need more of.
