I recently moved from another blog source to wordpress and I can not seem to find where I can add my own personal sidebar plug-ins on the sidebar of my web blog. Does wordpress offer that or am I just not seeing where I am able to do this?
WP.com blogs don not allow plugins to be used. Please read the pink sticky at the top of the forum page.
So okay , I did read that, and I guess I should have asked my question in a different way……..So I can not use Flickr, add my own recipe, nor add a photo on the sidebar of my web blog, correct?
Not sure what you mean by recipe but you may want to look at the Text Widgets to see if that’ll work for you.
For the photo, I’m not sure if you can add a image link into the text widget. You might want to try that. Another method would be to modify your theme but we are currently using shared themes here and modifications are not allowed.
Hope this helps,
Yes, Dr.Mike, you can add Flickr image link to text widget. Flickr even allows you a few photo sizes to choose from.
You can add images to text widgets that you put on the side. You can link to a photo that you have up somewhere simply by using an img tag. For a logo-type treatment, you can do what I did. I matched the background of my logo to the background color of the text widget. See it on the right side top at http://dashboardspy.wordpress.com
How do I add the code from http://statcounter.com into my sidebar? Does that work if I just put it into a text widget?
Why don’t you so ahead and try it and report back to us? :)
Well, remember that I have no idea what I’m doing — and I pasted it into the text box of the text widget and it didn’t work.
What I did was create a whole new Link Category. Named it Site Meter. Make sure it’s set to Visible, or something. To make sure that the image shows. And then add the links Site Meter gives me. One link as the url link and the second link for the image link. It might take a couple of minutes for it to sow up.
I also add numbers to each of my link categories because if I didn’t, then all my link catagories would show up in alphabetical order, which I don’t want.
I’ve always used the invisible sitemeter. Does it have to be visible?
dashboard — I’ve been trying to post an image in my sidebar and it hasn’t worked.
Is the image code <img></img>?
Yes, use the img tag as you stated. In the opening img tag put the src attribute like so src=”http://dashboardspy.com/img/red.gif” with a space after the img. Insert the src attribute right before the > Be sure to put the correct link to wherever your image is. like this
Okay, I am totally confused.
If the URL is XXXXX — could you show me the code, using XXXXX for the URL?
(Of course, now that I’ve done it I’m not sure I like it, but at least I know how!)
Is there a way to center the image in the sidebar?
just wander, what are you guys going to put between start and end tags?
imgelement has actually an empty content, end tag is forbidden (in this case really forbidden) for it. so, it should be used as
<img ... />
to center an object you’ve got to use a
divelement with the
alignattribute set to “center”: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/present/graphics.html#edef-CENTER
oh, yes, it’s already deprecated too — it’s better to use styles to conform XHTML standards. let’s march to our own ;-)
options — okay, to stay consistent with my previous inept attempts at questioning —
If XXXXX is my image’s URL — what would the text widget be?
