More GRPC stuff - Sidebar Image & Wordpress Implementation

For folks who just want to do a sidebar in Blogger that links to the GRPC registration...

Is the magic code to generate:


Now, in the wonderful world of WordPress, all is different. It's not where I live regularly, but here's how I did it on the Alt-Blog.

1) Say any necessary bad words relevant to dealing with an unfamiliar system. This will save you time later.

2) Sign in and then click on Manage My Blogs (top right, on a drop down menu under your sign-in)

3) Under the blog you want to add the GRPC banner to, click on Dashboard.

4) This takes you to the Dashboard or control panel for WordPress. Now, select Appearance and then Widgets

5) Now, click on the Image widget it and drag it to the Sidebar box, dropping it there. You'll then get a blank Image Widget Menu.

6) Having done the magic drag'n'drop, it's data entry time. Fill in the blanks exactly as below, then hit SAVE.

7) Now, go to your blog and test the link by clicking on the shiny new image.

Huh. That is different than how I did it. Oh well. Works anyway. Wish we could be there this year.

In this world, there are different people at different places, with different mind sets. But what brings us onto common ground and gives us a feeling of oneness and leads us to a higher self and spiritualism. What is it that makes us “Feel free” and “Feel Good” and thrills us at times? As it has been said earlier, it’s not the world that plays with you, it`s the music that plays with your world and takes you to a new world of endless fantasies.inspirational music
