Support » Fixing WordPress » How to add Images to 'Text' widget.

  • I cannot for the life of me add an image to my ‘Text’ widget on my sidebar. I have tried the URL for the image from my Media Library (only the url text appears on my page). I have tried jpeg’s, png’s, anything I could think of and get nothing. Or even, how can we manage/edit the fonts, etc within the text widget? Trying to insert better text above the Aweber sign up box –

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

  • add an image to my ‘Text’ widget on my sidebar

    Try this

    <img src="your image URL goes here" alt="alt text here">



    An easier way is to create a new post, upload the image the way you would for an article, then click on the Text Tab next to Visual, copy that code and paste it in a text widget

    JanThanks for the suggestions! I’ll give them a try and keep my fingers crossed….

    Mikey118’s method worked for me, but the image presented as a link to the image file, which I didn’t want.

    <a href=" ... .jpg">
    removed the link.

    Just a note for anyone referencing this in the future

    To add an image you dont need to create a new post to upload an image that you want to use in another location. Simply go to the Media section of the main menu and then add new image.

    Andy – get rid of the <a> you don’t need it there at all.

    if you want an image to appear but not for it to act as a link you need to use this format

    <img src="" />

    Thanks screamingviolet, simple and effective!

    You know your stuff screamingviolet! Tried a bunch of suggestions from others with no luck until I read your entry! Thanks so much. Will this work if I upload a screenshot of an ad to the media library?

    yes.. when you upload it you should see a field called File URL with a link like this ->

    copy that link and inset it between the quotation marks below

    <img src=" " />

    its simple, basic html which you can learn from

    but reply here if you have problems and Ill help you out

    Thanks a lot
