[resolved] Adding a hyperlinked image to sidebar? (9 posts)

    I'm very computer illiterate when it comes to this. I've been researching for a while now and can't figure out how to do it.

    I have the reflections theme, but just customized.

    Basically on the sidebar where all the extra links are (my fave tunes, search, categories etc) I have one to my forums and I want it to stand out more by adding the same graphic on my forum into the sidebar with a link to the forums.

    Help?

    the code for this would be

    < a href="http://www.linktotheforum.com" > <img src="location/of/your/image.jpg" >< /a >

    without spaces (except for the spaces between 'a href' and 'img src' - those stay)

    but be careful - that forum image might be too wide for that sidebar - make sure you shrink it a bit first.

    Thanks it worked great :)

    Is there any way to remove the border around the linking image?

    sure - add: border="0" to the same tag where you have "img src"

    I just posted a question about the same subject...

    What is the file name that contains the side bar code and the header code?

    Thanks..

    lady - You are the epitome of awesomeness today for me! :D thanks!!

    Mrpest - mine was under presentation and a sub tab called theme editor

    then when you click that on the right hand side there is `reflections' theme files (on mine you will have a different name) then it lists

    stylesheet
    main index template
    comments
    footer
    header
    searchform.php
    sidebar

    Pretty self explanitory for where you edit the header and sidebar from there :)
