    K, save the image on your computer and upload the image to your post.

    Put the image in your media library. It then has a unique url. Put that url into the widget. If you need a better explanation of how to get that url, email me on the address you can see now I’ve commented – or leave me a comment on my blog’s contact form.

      Thank you! No wonder I brag on you – smart AND gorgeous. You are a good girl. I’ll try this later today. And thank you for offering further help. Us bipeds may have thumbs, but we aren’t always that smart.

    I hope the other readers can help because I’m a no-awards site. Good Luck!

    I remember the first time I tried to post my awards and asked for help. I didn’t have a clue what anyone said to help. I still don’t know much. Hope you get the problem figured out. 😉

    No guffawing from moi. I can’t get my widgets to work not do anything technically other than copy and past links. Even had friends send me instructive videos to no avail. You have my understanding and sympathy. Hugs!

    Another way is: Right click on image and use copy image url. From your dashboard, go to appearance and then widgets. Choose the “Image” widget, Right click in the “image url” box (second from top) choose which sidebar and position you want it to appear and click “save widget” (blue button on the bottom.) Done. 🙂

    I would note that WordPress has some good help support pages on how to create an Image widget like this. (I suspect that Clowie knows about this 😉 )

    I would link up, but this tends to put me in comment moderation limbo on many people’s blogs. Please let me know and I will send them to you, either here or by e-mail (since my comments here also give you my e-mail contact information).

    It appears you have already solved your dilemma. Had there been no entries here, I might have suggested that you simply examine the widgets you have already used and do what you have already done. “Works every time,” as they say.

    And I am a “techie,” I suppose, so that is how I sum it all up. If you do need more help with widgets, you have only to ask. Also… up the list of comments there is one that made me think a bit. I realise that my site is not a “no awards” site; I simply do not accept awards. Can you answer the riddle regarding how these to states differ, or rather in what way these two states, seemingly at odds with one another are, in point of fact, completely compatible. I believe I am feeling all Zen about the nature of it all….

      I reverse engineered but it still didn’t work so I figured I was doing something stupid. the person with “no awards” has not been nominated for any, which is truly a shame. it is a very interesting and well written blog about the war in the pacific and korea.

        Did you ever send me a link to this blog? Also…. Make sure that this is not a cache issue. The awards might appear to your friends, but not to you until you clear your cache. In firefox, you can also reload a page while holding down the “shift” key to accomplish this.

        Still, I have found there are a few features of wordpress which will resist even this. For this recalcitrance, I will use a different browser and see what transpires.

          No. I was doing something stupid and my mouse finally died. Of course, I made a simple copy and paste into something difficult.

            I do take it that you were able to sort out your technical problems?

              Yes. I doing a stupid thing with my copy and paste. Right now I am lying low. My husband’s father is in hospice, dying, so the greater part of my attention is going to him and some is going to my work. I feel badly for him. He has a useless brother who is doing all he can to be an obstreperous and recalcitrant jerk-off. Ahhhhh. Dysfunctional families…

                Than I will wish you courage and strength. The next set of Etudes which will appear will be dedicated to you. Two are begun; but not yet finished.

                Best to you and yours. Life can be hard–even while it is being, at the very same instant, wonderful.
