    Actually, I have no idea what you are asking. :)

    If you want the actual code to show in your posts put it in the <code> tags or just use the code button.

    What is it you are trying to do?

    I was trying to put html copied from another site onto
    my sidebar!
    As you will know, I am inexperienced and trying to learn.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    OK, to edit the look of your page you go to the wp-content/themes/ then open the folder of the theme you are using for your blog. If you haven't changed it in your admin panel it will be the default folder

    To add something to your sidebar you will see a file in your theme folder called sidebar.php

    You will notice some php mixed in with the html so try to figure out what does what. Add your new html in upload and test. Make sure you keep a backup of the original files incase you really mess things up (we've all been there). :)

    Hope that's what you were asking about.
