Looking for a widget to do this

  • I’m looking for a widget that will allow me to display badges (small images) I select. This will primarily be for the badges that are supposed to link back to the provider as a condition of using their server (like Blogflare, etc.).

    Not that I change themes regularly, but when I do I want to avoid having to update my sidebar just to add those images.

    Does anybody have a suggestion on a widget that will do this?

  • A text widget and place the image code within it? Sounds simple enough.

    Are you planning on changing these images or making them selectable in anyway?

    Thanks for responding, drmike. 🙂

    Your idea sounds possible. In fact, I tried entering a simple line of html that was supposed to call an image and make it link to somewhere, but the result was a text link instead. It looked like it was using the alt text for the image. So is it that I’m not entering enough?

    As for changing these images, it’s quite likely. I’m going to use it to point visitors to things like blog directories or other blog-related destinations.

    Okay, I’ve read elsewhere in this forum that it is supposed to be as simple as adding an IMG tag, but when I do that all I can get out is the alt text.

    Is there some setting that I need to change or something?

    this is the code I use to link images using a text widget

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.example.com/"><img src="http://www.example.com/example.gif" width="80" height="15" border="0" alt="Example" /></a>

    Thanks, 4k. I must have had something typed in wrong. I’ve got them up now. 🙂
