Images in Sidebars

  • I’m new to WordPress. I would like to add images to my sidebar (where all the widgets are), but don’t know how to do this. I would be grateful for some guidance. Thank you.

    If you can use HTML, you can add the images via a Text Widget.

    there are plugins for image widgets: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=image+widget

    the ‘jetpack’ plugin is one of them, which provides a ‘image widget’ which you could use;

    or, if you know html, you can use a text widget and add the html image tag directly into it.

    details might depend on where the images are coming from, and where they are saved in your site.

    Thank you for your guidance. I have now successfully added html via the Text Editor.

    But I have not been able to add an image. I am accustomed to using an <img src> tag. How do I physically get an image into the Text Widget box?

    Thank you.

    You have to upload your image via FTP or CPanel to where you want it.
    Or you need to go into your media section and find the file url and use that in your img src

    <img src="http://yourwebite.com/wp-content/where you uploaded the photo too/image.jpg width="" height="" alt="">

    so it could be you uploaded to
    uploads/2012/12/
    or
    themes/yourthemename/images/
