I am not a coder. I didn’t come from an HTML background before I started to build WordPress sites for my clients.
And of course there has been no reason to learn much of it because I only use WordPress. And with WordPress, it’s all built in. Drag and drop this. Drag and drop that. Add a plugin here and there and you’ve got everything you need.
But what happens when you find you DO need to know a little code? Like when you want to add an image file to a sidebar widget?
First I’ll tell you one of the easiest ways to do this. Luckily, I’ve already written about it here:
There is another way to do this though which I like a little better.
It requires that you add a plugin called Simple Image Widget.
Once you’ve installed it, drag it over to your sidebar and open the options. The part that I like the best about this plugin is that you can easily add a URL if you want the image clickable and to open at another site.
Why would you do that? Perhaps you have an affiliate ad that you’d like to send the viewer to. You can even highlight a document of your own to send your viewers to.
Your image re-routes the viewer to a document that you’ve hosted elsewhere such as at Bluehost.
But I’m sure you can think of lots of uses for this plugin.
