WordPress.org Tutorial-Adding Pictures To A Sidebar

***I got asked on if it the steps are the same for uploading a pdf and as far as I can see the would be the same steps except the last step would be different. I will update this post again once I find the code you would use to PDF’s on your sidebar.

This is a tutorial for people who use wordpress.org because it is a little bit different to add pictures to their sidebars. I am going to show how to use your own server to host the pictures but you can also use Photobucket as well.

  1. You are going to login into your blog and click on Media & then Add New
  2. Once you click on add new you will see the same screen you get when you add pictures in your posts:
  3. After you upload the picture you are going to grab the link to the picture for here:
  4. You will the plug that url into this coding: <center><img src=”LINK GOES HERE” border=”0″ alt=”title”></a></center>
  5. You then take that code and put it in the “text” widget on your sidebar.

Please let me know if you need more help or if something doesn’t make sense!

Now On WordPress

So I finally made the jump to a WordPress self hosted site for both my blog and business. I was scared to make the jump because I didn’t know if I would be able to figure it out and it was so overwhelming thinking about everything that would have to be changed. All of you should know about Jacqui by now if you don’t you will be glad that you do now. She owns Wacky Jacqui Designs & Transfer To WordPress she is also the designer that got me started in blog design. I ordered the transfer last week on like Thursday she started the transfer Monday and it had it all finished yesterday afternoon. She was transferring the designs I had and all the content on both of my blogs. I was so excited that it was done so quick and she is great about answering questions. I am so glad that I made the move and I know most of you will as well. Her button to her to transfer site is above so that will get to her site also she is under the partners tab on the top as well!
