Great! Widget-logic has been uploaded. Now I would like to insert this picture into my "Experience" page. Is there a tag or something that I should add under "Widgets" -> "Primary Sidebar" -> "Widget Logic"? Thanks!

Hi Tim - First you'll want to resize the image, which you can do in WordPress by choosing "edit". Then, it will give you a URL for the image. Simply put that in an image tag, like so: `url-here.jpg`

Hi Kate, I was able to resize the image. Where would you suggest I insert the image tag? Under "Widgets" -> "Primary Sidebar" -> "Widget Logic"? The image URL is here. I would like it to appear here. Thanks!

Hi Tim, Yes, that would be a good place to put it. Here's the image tag you need to add: `Caption goes here` Replace Caption goes here with the text you want visitors to see when the image is moused over.

Hi Catrina, Unfortunately, that did not work. Again, I would like to have different pictures under "About Us" and "Experience." Inserting the code as you suggested under "Widgets" -> "Primary Sidebar" -> "Widget Logic," created an error message on the "About Us" and "Experience" pages. The code you suggested relates to a different picture than the one I have already inserted under "Widgets" -> "Primary Sidebar" -> "Widget Logic." Please advise. Thank you.

Hi Tim - If you want different pictures on different pages (in the sidebar), you'll have to use an additional plugin. Currently sidebar settings and content are global.

Sounds good. Is there a plugin you would recommend?

I actually don't think you need another plugin. You just need to use two text widgets (with pictures) and add the conditionals. See the screenshot:http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/screenshots/ where it says `is_page('about')` that's what you need but with whatever your pages are named where you replace spaces with dashes.

That seems like it should work. I must need to just tweak something. Under Widgets -> Primary Sidebar, I have entered two text widgets (with pictures) and added the following conditionals: is_page('about us') is_page('experience') The "Experience" page is now displaying properly. The picture on the "About Us" page is not visible. These webpages can be seen here: http://www.business-english-editors.com/about-us/ http://www.business-english-editors.com/experience/ Under the "About Us" text widget, I have inserted: Man-Smiling-c.jpg Thanks for your help.

no use backticks instead to wrap code (same button as tilde on your keyboard) I'm sure the code is just missing something small

after I put a hyphen between about and us as below: is_page('about us') -> 'about-us' The issue was resolved. ----- I am not sure what you meant by "no use backticks instead to wrap code...." Are you saying that I should wrap code in ` marks when I write a post in the forum? Thanks.
