[Resolved] Pages in Sidebar

  • Hi, I’m wanting to make banner-type things in Photoshop, and each one would be a separate file with the name of one of my pages on each one. Since these wouldn’t be saved to a URL, is there a widget I can use to sort of add the actual picture to, so it would show up on the sidebar of my page?

  • You can use the text widget which allows you to use HTML, is that what you’re looking for?

    Rab, it’s a picture I made, so it’s not hosted on a site or anything. Therefore, I don’t know how’d I’d html a pic that I just made from scratch in photoshop.

    Wish there was a way to post a picture of what I have done- it’d probably take you (or someone else) about 2 seconds to figure out exactly what I’m trying to explain.

    You can upload it to your Media Manager to get in on your site. It’ll give you a URL which you can then use in the widget.

    tried that, and it worked with a pic I found on a website, but it just showed that little thing that indicates a photo should be here, but it’s not.

    That sounds like it’s not uploaded correctly, or the URL is incorrect. Can you see the thumbnail of it in your Media Library?

    What file type is it?

    yeah, the thumbnail is in the media library. It’s a .jpeg file.

    Alright, then it sounds like you don’t have the correct URL if it’s not displaying properly. Can you paste the URL which you are using for the image which gives the broken image?

    Rab, sorry for the late response. This is the url for the picture. http://golfundamentals.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/pagesidebartest.jpg

    Can you try adding this to a text widget in your sidebar? Replace the # with the URL of your page.

    <a href="#"><img src="http://golfundamentals.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/pagesidebartest.jpg"></a>

    You may or may not want to add in alt and title tags, or alignment with a class such as aligncenter.

    Rab,

    Awesome it worked! Only thing is it bumps up against the very right side of the page (which is what I assume you were referring to w/ alignment). Do you know where the alignment tags would be placed to solve this issue?

    Really appreciate your help!

    Hi,

    Try this,

    <a href="#"><img class="aligncenter" src="http://golfundamentals.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/pagesidebartest.jpg"></a>

    There is more on WP CSS in the Codex.

    ok, that worked. thanks a million, and sorry for the delayed response times on my behalf.

    No problem, don’t be sorry, I’m not sitting waiting – just passing by from time to time 🙂

    Glad it worked out.
