    I am having trouble creating a linked image in the text widget in the sidebar. I have been using

    <a href=”http://www.lolafayemi.com” title=”test”><img src=“http://www.alignedandthriving.com/images/healthy_sandwich.jpg” alt=”test” /></a>

    and getting no image come up and a dodgy link of http://www.alignedandthriving.com/”http://www.lolafayemi.com”.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the image to show up and how to get the link going to the right place. The site is at http://www.alignedandthriving.com and it's the right sidebar.

    You can do it from text widget by adding simple code of the image. For more details you can refer:

    Shane G - that didn't work all it showed up was the url in the sidebar :(

    Gangleri - yes I am pasting from Word, does that matter? If yes where should I paste from?

    Sorted! For anyone else with the same problem use:

    <a href="linkurl"><img src="imageurl" />

    Thanks for your help Shane G.

    I've been trying to figure out the same problem. But as a total noob, I don't even know what "imageurl" should actually say. Is it "http://www.mydomain.com//public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/imagename.gif" ??

    (If so, it's not working...)

    Showgirl: don't forget to add the closing link tag </a>

    <a href="linkurl"><img src="imageurl" /></a>

    Yes, it is correct. The images URL should be the actual link of the image. You can use it like this:

    < a href="linkURL"><img src="ImageURL">

    Please make sure to use all tags carefully.

    And delete the space between < and a

    Did you get it figured out? I get the same results as you. If you did figure it out, I would really appreciate the code. Thanks.
