Widget to Add a Button to Sidebar
You need to create a link in a text widget and the link can be to a button image. This isn’t hard to do.
The easiest way to create a text widget is just to write it as a draft post with no title. Once it looks the way you want more or less, click to the TEXT editor, copy all the code, and paste it in the text widget.
That’s what the instruction I linked to suggest too.
Really? They never used to; I’m the one who came up with that!
Thank you timethief and raincoaster!!
You’re welcome and best wishes. :)
I do it slightly differently. I upload the image I want to the media library. Click edit on the image to view the permalink, paste this into an image widget and then paste the website URL into the link field
I’m having the same issues. I followed the instructions by creating a draft post and copying the code. I paste the code into a text widget, and my images are appearing HUGE on my sidebar. Please have a look at my blog and see what I mean (it is the social media buttons on the bottom of the sidebar). I am also trying to place the social media buttons side by side, that isn’t working either.
Here is the code
<img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-1257″ alt=”twitter” src=”http://silkandspiceblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/twitter2.png” width=”48″ height=”48″ /> <img alt=”instagram” src=”http://silkandspiceblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/instagram2.png” width=”48″ height=”48″ />
