You ought to be able to upload files in two ways: by going to Media → Add New from your dashboard http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/media-add-new/ or by clicking the new Add Media button right above the editing area of a page or a post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/add-media/
For troubleshooting see http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/troubleshooting-images/
I’m having the same problem….. I’ve read everything on the suggested links, but the widget still shows a square… My image size is 300 by 450. Should I scale the image down further? Any suggestions on size. I would REALLY appreciate any help!!!
If you need to look at my blog in order to suggest anything, here is my blog info.
@momslooking2save: The Image widget requires pasting the URL of an image. Image URLs end with the filetype suffix (.jpg or .png etc). You didn’t use such an URL, you used a shortlink. And again it’s the shortlink for an attachment page. When you upload an image via Media > Add New, you copy the File URL. This is the URL you need:
Ideally you should first downsize the to the right width for the sidebar (200px in the theme you’re using), then upload it and copy its URL.
@justpi: Thank you so much! I REALLY appreciate your help! I am going to try it tomorrow and let you know!!!
I got it!!! Thanks so much!!! I’m new to this so I’m sure I will posting more questions!!
