Are you frustrated trying to figure out how to get a working text link in your sidebar? See My Designs by Shauna is happy to bring you a free tutorial to take you step by step through the process!
Step 1: Text Widget
- Log-in to your WordPress dashboard
- Navigate to Appearances >> Widgets
You should now be in your widgets menu page! To the left will be all of your available widgets, to the right will be the customization of those widgets that appear live on your site. Click and drag the Text widget into the sidebar of your choice.
Step 2: HTML Code
The trick to the text link is the HTML code within the text widget. Copy and paste the code below in the widget created in Step 1 and customize it to your needs!
<a href=”http://www.INSERT-SITE-URL-HERE.com” target=”_blank”>INSERT TEXT TO BE DISPLAYED HERE</a>
Once you enter the customized HTML code, be sure to save the widget. You can now navigate to the front end of your site and see your new text link!
