    I am trying to insert a link into the lower right footer of the twenty eleven child theme on my site. I have used the TEXT widget and can add the text fine, but the url link is inactive.

    I am a noob at this but learning. Can someone explain a fix in simple terms please. :-)

    My website is http://www.sidewalkastronomy.ca

    You can add the link or call a linked image directly in the footer template.

    <a href"your link url">
    <img src="url to your image" style="width:600px;"></a>

    The style width is optional, remove it if your image ia already sized for the space, or change/add style to suit.

    Hi deepbevel. Thank you for the prompt reply. i tried your suggestion by posting <a href"www.lirelanature.com">

    directly into the Footer two template but nothing shows up.

    Did I misunderstand? I may pass on their logo image, lol

    Hey Keith,

    Be sure your link is properly formatted with the "equals" sign like so:

    <a href="http://example.com">

    Hi pcwriter, i have posted this exactly as follows into the Footer Two template but it does nothing. I do not see the link nor the code after saving the widget and refreshing the home page.

    <a href="http://lirelanature.com"></a>

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Hi folks, thanks for all the help, You pointed me in the right direction and I found a solution.

    You have to enter the link as follows

    <a href="http://www.lirelanature.com/">Lire La Nature</a>

    And it works fine.
