I used the widget sidblog and these are the steps I took:
created a new category,named it asides1
Created a post with only the image in it. (You could make the image a link while you are at it.)
Made the title of the post what I wanted the title of the image to be
Went to the sideblog control and set it to show that category with only one post.
In the widgets control window I put the widget for sideblog where I wanted the image to be.
In the future when I will want to add another image to the sidebar, I will create another category and do the above and then tell sideblog to show both categories
Its a work around, but hey, it works. And I did not have to dig into the code of the template to do it and can substitute other images when I want.
Use a text sidebar widget. Just insert the html code:
<a href="http://insert your link here"><img src="http://your image source here"></a>
This will display your image, and clicking on it will open the link. You can add any text you wish using standard html code.
capelyddol thanks for the response – I’ll try that also.
I”m a wuss – seems like this should be easier
Thanks both of you
I ended up using capelyddol solution. Don’t know if it’s the most efficient but its’ working fine.
I’m used to inserting HTML links.
I tried the Text Box widget from the Dashboard,
found that it ignored my hyperlink.
How can I place my own hyperlink, perhaps between SearchBox and “Categories”, to a page of my choice?
It seems I’m saying capelyddol’s logical method did not work for me.
