1. I’ve wondered how to do that so I really appreciate the detailed information! Thank you! I recently found your site and have learned so much from it already. As a fairly new blogger there are so many things I’m still learning and it can be overwhelming at times.

      You’re so very welcome! I’m so happy you’re learning and enjoying the tutorials!

  2. Hello. I’ve done this and can’t seem to get it to work. It just shows a tiny little icon that looks like an image is supposed to be there but the link may be broken? I’ve copied the image file url just like you said and tried linking it to my about page and just any page once that wouldn’t work and the image still doesn’t up. Any suggestions? Thanks! (I have the darling theme)

      Hi Anna! Will you email me directly with your site url and the login information (you can use the contact form here on the site) so that I can take a look for you?

      1. Courtney, I just submitted a contact form message. Once you email me I will give you my login info you need. I currently have my site up with a “coming soon” landing page so if you just go to the site you probably can’t see my page. Just email me and let me know if you’re needing my wordpress login? Thank you so much!

          Hey Anna! I just sent you a reply to your contact form submission!

  3. Hi,

    Was there an easy solution for Anna’s problem above? I’ve just tried to set up my first image and I have the same problem. A tiny blue question mark.


    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Hey Vanessa! Ensure that you have the ” ” around the image url! If that doesn’t work, feel free to shoot me an email directly at Assistant@Restored316.com 🙂

  4. Does this work for the Darling theme?

    1. Restored316 says:

      Absolutely! This will work with any of our themes and WordPress in general.

  5. Hi, Lauren!
    Why are my sidebar contents all the way at the bottom of my blog page? I’m using the Darling theme.
    Thanks much,

      Hi Hermie,

      You’ll want to make sure you’re on the latest version of Genesis and this issue will correct for you!

      1. I am using version 2.4.2. I think this is the current version.
        Any other way to fix it?

          1. Ok, thanks a lot.

  6. Hi! Thanks for this great tutorial!
    I added my image but it is not centered in my sidebar. It is hugging the left side of the sidebar because the image is not big enough to fill the space.
    Is there a code to add to center it in the sidebar space??
    Thanks so much!!

    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Hi Jen!

      Sure thing.. just add

      before the code and
      after the code and it will center it for you!

  7. Hi I’ve followed these instructions for an image next to the author photo and it shows up, but the next day it’s gone. It gives me a warning about having an alt attribute. What do I need to do? Anchor theme.

    1. Lani Padilla says:

      Hi Taryn,
      In the code for the image add alt=”” …. so the format would be

      Hope this helps!

  8. I’d like to use a picture from my computer, but the Media Library will not allow it to download. Any ideas? Thanks!

    1. Lani Padilla says:

      Hi Katie,
      Contact your host to see if there is a size limit on media uploads.

  9. I purchased the market theme for my online store website. I am having issues with the front page 1 widgets. In the demo it shows the “about”, “shop”, “blog”, buttons inside the image. After following the directions given in tutorial, my buttons created from the genesis featured page widget are not inside image but on top of image. I also tried the custom html widget, however it also did not work. I have also tried using both and it just puts them lateral of each other.

  10. Thanks for this. I have a course on my wordpress site and I would like the image to show on all the pages of the course. Where do I add the code? Thanks for any help you can provide. I have the Refined Theme.

    1. Lani Padilla says:

      Hi Melanie,
      If you want a custom sidebar just for course content (assuming you are building the course on your WordPress site), you could use a plugin like Genesis Simple Sidebars to add the custom sidebar.
      Hope this helps!
