[resolved] Looking for plugin... (not sure what words to search on) (5 posts)

    I'm sure this is mind-numbingly easy <smile> but I can't put my finger on the search words.

    I'm looking for a plugin or a widget that will allow me to put my "get our button" graphic and html in the sidebar without turning the html into a link. I know I've seen this a hundred times, but can't think of what it's called to search the plugins.

    Or can I do it without a plugin? Is there a way to code it in a Text Widget?

    Thanks for your help!

    Can you just type the html into a text widget, but wrap the code that you want to display with
    pre or code tags? Or better yet, replace the first < with & l t ; without the spaces in between. It keeps disappearing on my screen when I type it right.

    Something like:
    & l t ; a href="http://yourwebsites.com">button stuff</a>

    Just tried that and it didn't work. I was able to see the button, which was non-clickable (hurray!), but I need for the html code to be written underneath the button so that visitors can copy/paste the code to put on their sites to link back to mine.

    When I did the above, the picture was great. There was text above it, however that started with & l t; Hmmmmm...I wonder if there is something in there that I can mess with to figure it out...

    Thank you jessn!

    I just tested this on a text widget and it works:

    <textarea><a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/">your text here if you wish</a></textarea>

    the button is just a regular
    <img src="path-to-image.jpg" width="150" height="150" alt="description" />

    Hope this helps.

    That's exactly what I needed! Thank you buddha trance.
