Hello, How would you suggest I make the picture in ???Widgets??? -> ???Primary Sidebar??? different for my ???About??? and ???Experience??? pages? In other words, I want to insert this picture into my ???Experience??? page. I want to delete the picture currently displaying in my ???Experience??? page, but I want it to remain on my ???About??? page. Website = www.business-english-editors.com Thank you!

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.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

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?

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.

OK, I am trying to insert: img src="Picture URL"width="448px" I wanted my post to look like Catrina's beautiful post above. I've been using the Code button. Thanks.

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.
