How to add an image link in your WordPress sidebar + FREE banners

Recently one of my customers asked me How to add an image link in your WordPress sidebar. By default, WordPress has only a text widget so you need adding HTML code manually. But, no worries, if you don’t know HTML, I will show you an easy trick to get around that.

This is really useful if you want put a logo, sponsors and internal links to your website.

 

How to add an image link in your WordPress sidebar

  • In your dashboard, create a new post or page and  and add an image from your library or computer.

  • Once you have uploaded and inserted your image, click on the image and then click on the pencil icon (see below).

  • A new window will pop up with information about your image. Now you can select Link to – custom URL and enter your URL.  If you want your image to open in a new window, set the target”open link in a new tab”.

  • Tab over to the text mode and copy all HTML code.

3. Go to Appearance > Widgets and drag-drop a text widget to your sidebar where you want to display the image, add a title text if you like and paste code.

  • Delete that post or  save it as a draft for easier editing in case you decide to change things up again in the future.
  • Now visit your site and click on the linked image to verify that the link works as expected.
