The Image Widget provides you with a simple way to display an image in your blog’s sidebar.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Adding An Image

When you activate the Image Widget, you will be prompted to add a title, which is optional, and click on the “Add Image” button. Once you do that, you will be brought to your media folder to either select an existing image or to upload a new one. When you have the image you would like, you can click it. You will notice when you select an image, there are a variety of settings next to each image. The settings include, Title, Caption, Alt Text, and Description. There are also Display Settings. The Display Settings are where you can set your image to link to an external URL.

To link the image to an external URL, under Display Settings pick “Custom URL” from the drop down next to link to. A box will appear for you to type in the URL you’d like the image to link to. Once you have the URL set, you can click “Add to Widget” and the image linking to the custom URL will be added.

When you’re finished, click Save and then visit your website to see your shiny, new Image Widget!
