How to Change Your Sidebar Widgets

April 25, 2009 · Print This Article

Over on Expand2Web I just posted a video that shows you how to change the default sidebar widget by replacing it with a newsletter signup form.

I’ve embedded the video below, and you can click here to read the whole tutorial on Expand2Web – How to Add a WordPress Widget to Your Website.

The Chiropractor2Web WordPress Theme has a default sidebar widget – the “Call Us Today” widget with the picture of the smiling receptionist. This default widget will show unless you go into your WordPress Admin panel and add a widget of your own.

Then this one will go away and be replaced by the widget(s) that you add. This video shows you how to do this.

Note: I’m using the excellent AWeber email newsletter service in this video.

    Your video helped me greatly.

    One problem I’m having is that jpgs are not showing up on any of the menu bar links except the Home page. A box with a red ‘X’ shows but no picture.

    To force the pictures to show up, I included the “http://…” in front of the “/wp-content/themes/chiro/images” of a Text widget and then it does show up.

    What am I doing wrong? Do I have the wrong folder?

    I submitted a comment, and although it shows above, it’s not clear to me whether it was accepted.

    The reason I’m confused and unsure is because this “Speak your mind” window appeared after I submitted my post.

    Did my post make it to you?

    Hi Kurt,
    There is a delay in comments showing up because I have it set to approve them before they go live (because of lame spammers.)

    Can you send me a link to your site or a screen shot so I can see what you are talking about?
