A new blogger asked for help to put the A to Z badge on her sidebar.
I use a text widget for this. As long as you are able to copy and paste, these instructions should work.
From the dashboard select appearance and then widgets.
In the text widget, choose a title, such as Blogging from A to Z.
Then in the text box copy and paste the following HTML to give the badge with a link to A to Z (I hope!)
<a href=”http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/”><img alt=”” src=”http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n547/Jeremy-iZombie/A%20TO%20Z%202014/A2Z-BADGE-0002014-small_zps8300775c.jpg” title=”AtoZ April Challenge” /></a>
The text widget may be positioned in a prominent position using drag and drop.
I wrote an earlier post, Murphy’s law again, where I described the problems I was having putting links to the letters on my posts.
I have now discovered a way of doing this without having to copy them to my media library. (I hope it doesn’t cause anything to crash!)
What I have done is, at the point in my post where I wish the letter to appear, to switch from visual to text and to paste the link to the letter.
For B this is
Links may be copied by right clicking on the image.
The complete list is:-
Although not all the links seem to be displayed in full, right clicking on them and selecting copy shortcut allows the entire link to be copied.
I hope this is of some assistance to my readers in general and A to Z ers in particular.
It has solved my problem of what to write about today!
