By editing your theme’s sidebar template file. Or, if your theme is widget-capable, adding the image to a Text widget via Appearance -> Widgets.
Well THAT was a totally useless response! I just text widget enabled my wide sidebar top, added some text with code and all that happened is I LOST the links I used to have on the side.
I can not believe there is no easy way to put banners, text, vids, or whatever where I want them!
You have to add your LINKS widget to the sidebar too, though. Once you start using the widgets, it replaces the hard coded ones, so you have to recreate them with available widgets.
Thank you ipstenu. Is that going to let me post graphics though? Sorry, I am having major brain fog today and am very frustrated.
Here is the code I added to the text widget:
<embed wmode=”opaque” src=”http://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/index/swf/badge.swf?v=201011042247″ FlashVars=”backgroundColor=0xFFCCFF&textColor=0x330000&config=http%3A%2F%2Frosesonmytable.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fbadge%2FshowPlayerConfig%3Fxg_source%3Dbadge%26size%3Dmedium%26username%3D13wti3vyz8a3y” width=”206″ height=”174″ bgColor=”#FFCCFF” scale=”noscale” allowScriptAccess=”always” allowFullScreen=”true” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer”> </embed>

It is not showing up. I don’t see where I can add that kind of code in links.
BTW, my blog is http://www.malindaj.com/blog
It should do it in your text widgets. Though that’s shockwave, not an image, and … Shockwave can be a pain. Embedding it doesn’t always work right, and that’s generally not WordPress but shockwave :/
ipstenu, thanks to you I was finally able to get my page the way I like it. A bit clujey isn’t it?! Well, it’s done and I owe you many thanks!!
@ esmi, my theme is widget enable but how do i add the image to a Text widget via Appearance -> Widgets when the image is not a code but a picture from my computer.
Upload the image to your Media Library via Media -> Add New
Once the image is uploaded, click the Edit link in the Media Library listing for the new image
On the next page, make a note of the image’s URL.
Add a text widget to your sidebar and within the content area of the widget, add:
<img src="add_the_image_URL_here" width="xx" height="yy" alt="add_an_image_description_here" />
where xx = the image’s width in pixels
and yy = the image’s height in pixels.
@ esmi, thanks again, it’s done but one more thing here, i want to link the image to an external link and cant remember the aref stuff thing.
<a href="add_the_full_address_here">before the img markup and
