Sidebar editing (3 posts)

    I'm running WP 1.5 and would like to add a link to a webring and also rotate 1 item daily in my sidebar. When I access the template page on my dashboard, I get the message that I could edit the code if the page was writeable. When I try to FTP an edit so that I can put something on my sidebar, my authentication fails every time.

    How can I add webring links and other things (I want to rotate one gif per day to indicate my mood) on my own?


    Thanks for all your help!

    First, the "dashboard" is only one page on the Administration pages. Just for information. To make a file writable, see Changing File Permissions.

    To work on your sidebar, you might want to check out:

    Thank you very much! I'm still learning my way around WP.
