    I want to replace each sidebar category title on my blog with an image. Can you help me with this?

    The blog I need help with is



    The custom design upgrade comes with Staff support but you may not receive that support until Monday.


    I’m still waiting to hear on this subject, is it possible that since there was a response that it looks like this question was answered? If so is there a way to show that it hasn’t been answered?



    This thread is not display “resolved”. It’s an open thread and it has not fallen through the cracks. The CSS upgrade is not recommended to those who do not have CSS editing skills and aren’t able to work independently with very little support. Staff are backlogged and it will take time for them to work through all the CSS Forum threads from the earliest date to the most recent date.

    You can use an image replacement like this:

    #blog_subscription-3 .widget-title {
    	background: url( 15px 0 no-repeat;
    	display: block;
    	width: 36px;
    	height: 36px;
    	text-alignment: left;
    	text-indent: -9999px;
    	border: 0;

    Note that you need to look in the page source code to see which selectors to use. In this example, “#blog_subscription-3” refers to the first widget in your sidebar. Each widget gets a unique ID after it is added.

    I used a WordPress logo as an example image. To use a different image, replace the url() value with an image from your media library and adjust the width and height for your image.


    Thank you so much for your help. It looks perfect!


    Cheers :)
