I am updating a friend's wordpress site, and am pretty new to it. Here it the site: http://lernerwordsmithpress.com/
There are two 'stacked' posts on the left-hand side under the leaderboard. What I/we are trying to do is replace those with two images (justified left) with a small bit of text that would link to the same links. (As they currently are.) I can't change the post to include images in the "optional excerpt" area. It seems to only accept basic html and no images. When I remove the posts, the two blogrolls to the right (in the category bottom-right link & bottom-middle link) simply move over and destroy the layout. How can I replace those two posts with two image/text pieces?
I hope this makes sense and I appreciate in advance any help on this!
