[resolved] How do I add a logo under a sidebar? (5 posts)

    First time on here so hello everyone.

    I have a website http://www.purelymancity.com which was designed on WordPress

    I've had the site accepted on a newswire called Newsnow.co.uk who require me to put their logo on my homepage.

    I put it at the bottom of the page but Newsnow have just told me they want it in a more prominent position.

    So how do I place it under the sidebar headlines?

    The site was designed for me last year and dealing with computer code brings me out in a cold sweat, so please go gentle with me.

    You say that you placed their logo at the bottom of the page, right? You'll need to get a copy of the line(s) of code necessary to generate the logo, whatever that is. You probably still have it somehwere.

    Next, you'll need to open the file "sidebar.php" in your theme's folder on your web space. It is possible to do this in WordPress 2.x from the admin panel; I don't remember if it can be done in the WordPress 1.5 admin panel or not.

    After you have the "sidebar.php" file open, locate the line <h2>Most Recent Features</h2> and just before that line, paste the code that you obtained earlier for displaying the logo. Then save the new "sidebar.php" file.

    This should put the NewsNow logo just above your "Most Recent Features" headline on the sidebar.

    Are you looking to put it under the list of headlines at the bottom of the visible content in the sidebar?

    Bill's right about getting the code and putting it in the sidebar, but I understood that you wanted the logo under the end of the unordered list called 'ul class="posts"' which is under "Recent Headlines."

    You'd be looking for the </ul> tag after the list of latest headlines.

    In your sidebar.php template, there's likely a php script that's called to drop these headlines in place, so you won't see the whole list, but you should see the sections, I think.

    Let me know if I can be of assistance.

    Many thanks for responding, bill

    I've located the file "sidebarfeatures.php" under "Presentation" and "Theme Editor" and posted the code for the logo above the line <h2>Most Recent Features</h2>.

    However I do not seem to have the option to edit the file.

    At the bottom of the file it says: "If this file was writable you could edit it."

    I clicked on "manage" and "files" and tried putting the file name into the box that said "To edit a file, type its name here".

    But again I wasn't given the option to edit it.

    Any ideas?

    hi sewmyheadon

    Thanks for replying

    I suppose the logo could go either above the "most recent features" tag or below the sidebar.

    Though as NewsNow are getting pretty fussy about it being in a prominent position, probably above is better
