Adventure 233 ~ Try A New WordPress Widget

I was so excited about my “technological victory” yesterday, that I just couldn’t help myself today 😛 . As I was pretty certain that it would be impossible to put any kind of sign up box in the right-hand side bar of my website, I thought I’d g adventuring and see what I could manage.

And… if you tilt your eyes up to the right, you’ll see that I managed it! I really enjoyed myself working out how to do it (I feel rather pleased with myself, I must admit 🙂 ).

If you’re a blog/website owner, and this is something you’l like to do for your own site, then this is how you do it :

1. Go to Dashboard

2. Go to Appearance

3. Go to Widgets

4. Select and drag “Image” to the side bar

5. Make sure you already have the image you want to put into the side-bar loaded into your Media Gallery.

6. Paste the URL of your image into the appropriate box (you can get the URL if you go to your Gallery, and then click on the image ; scroll down the right hand side, and you’ll see the URL).

7. Paste the target URL (where you want people to end up when they’ve clicked on the image) into the appropriate box.

That’s all there is to it!

I am just going outside and may be some time.
