    Is it possible to upload a pic of the book I am currently reading onto a ‘text’
    widget. I have the pic in ‘my pictures’

    http://misslionheart.wordpress.com/ You can see I added “What I’m reading” and “What I’m listening to.” What next?

    you can click on the next blog link at the admin bar or the forum regulars to get more ideas on how to use text widgets. for me i have most popular posts and most commented posts along with currently reading.

    <img src=”url of your photo”>
    paste this code in your widget and you will get your image on your sidebar. If you want to add link to your image then paste following code

    [a href=”url of your link”][img src=”url of your photo”][/a]

    Just replace [ with <

    Don’t place the url there that starts with http: . Put the code that starts with <a hrf= or <img src= . Do you have a Photobucket or Flickr account? But where ever you upload your images, place the code that they give you in the widget, close the widget, safe it, and wait a couple of minutes for it to appear on your main page. But you might have to resize your image. I don’t put anything more than 200 pixels wide in my sidebar or else it will screw up everything.

    Also cut and save everything in your widget in case it doesn’t go through the first time and you have to do it again.

    After you upload your image at Flickr and save it and then click Save, click the picture agai where it’s next to all your other pictures that you’ve uploaded. Then click All Sizes at the toolbar like here:

    I still can’t do it. Am I right to put it into a ‘text’ widget? Flickr have given
    me two codes which are attached. I cant copy just one.

    In this code replace
    [ with <
    and
    ] with >

    It still doesn’t appear on my front page. Can someone please e-mail me with very simplified instructions. (Bearing in mind I’m no technohead and I have only been blogging since June !)
