Adding Images To Sidebar widgets (5 posts)

    Hello,

    My site (http://thecryptonline.com) was recently hit by a hacker and I had to reinstall wordpress and reinstall my custom theme with plugins and widgets. Upon reuploading all my stuff I noticed something went wrong in the theme department. In wordpress it allows you to have a title that displays above the widgets in the sidebar. When my theme was made I had my guy convert that text to images, not sure how he went about it but he got it working. Now only the images in the sidebar that load are the ones using custom html where I can add the code from the admin panel.

    I was curious if anyone knew the locations/files to edit to replace these sidebar texts with custom images. If you look at the sidebar now you'll notice images on some of the widgets, I want that to be uniform for the sidebar area. Can anyone give some insight? Id ask my theme guy but I havent been able to get in contact with him so thought I'd give it a shot myself.

    Thanks!

    As this is a custom theme, we do not have any real idea of how it has been structured. We can only support themes downloaded from https://wordpress.org/themes/

    I can only suggest that you go back to the person who carried out this work for you originally.

    The person who made the theme cannot be reached. So I don't have any other options as stated in OP. If it helps the theme is based off 2012 theme (I think). Let me restate, So hypothetically, if I were using the default wordpress theme how would I replace the sidebar widget title text with an image?

    I'm sorry but as this is still a custom(ised) theme, we cannot really help. I can only really suggest that you may want to hire someone to look at this for you.

    So, If I was using the default wordpress theme fresh install, how would I alter the title text in a sidebar widget to display an image instead of text?

    can anyone point me in the right direction?
