How to add an image to the Sidebar in WordPress
On your WordPress website, you may want to add an image to the widget area of your sidebar.
Maybe you want to add an image of yourself and have a bio to tell a bit more about yourself, or maybe you even want to make the image clickable to an affiliate offer.
In this short video below, I walk you through how I easily add an image to the sidebar in WordPress.
As you can see, it is a relatively simple process.
I will walk you through the steps once again:
Step 1 – Create a page and save as a draft
The very first step I do is to create a page and save it as a draft.
WARNING: DON’T publish the page, ONLY save as a draft.
Step 2 – Upload the image
Next select add media, add new and upload the image you want to use and insert it into the page.
Step 3 – Add in your link
If you want to make your image clickable then click on the image, add in your link to open in a new tab and save the page as a draft.
Then go into the text area and copy the code to your image.
Step 4 – Add into widget area
Next, go to appearance, widgets and add a text widget to your sidebar menu.
Now copy the code into your text widget and click save and you’re done!
So there you go!
That’s how you add an image to the sidebar in WordPress.
