    I have made a child theme from the Delicate theme

    See url

    I'm trying to figure out how to add an image in my widget. I would like to upload/insert an image and write some text to go with it. Is this possible and how do you do it?

    I have downloaded a really good plug-in called GRAND FlAGallery which allows you to showcase images in a great fancy way and I will certainly use this plug-in, in a different section of my website but I really need to upload single images and just write a short bit of text about them in my news section to inform about events etc sort of like they have done on this website (on the right hand side where there is a picture of a cd cover with some text about it - this is exactly what I would like in my widget section)

    I would be incredibly grateful if someone could help me out.

    Warm Regards

    Michelle

    Upload the image via the Media Uploader, then grab the path for the image.

    Then, in a Text Widget, add this:

    <img src="YOUR_PATH" alt="Alt Text Goes Here" />

    That will let you embed the image in the text widget.

    Fantastic, it works! Thank you so much : )

    Do you also by any chance know how I can display different header images on different pages?
