Promo Image widgets give you a visual link concept utilizing image backgrounds and a custom link to take the user to any location.
Prepare Your Images
Because these are independent images (not belonging to a post or page), we recommend preparing your images for uploading with a size of 450×275 pixels. This might seem large, but when someone is viewing your page in mobile mode, the columns collapse into 1 column and we need the image to give a wider view.
Setup Your Promo Image Widgets
- Go to Appearance >> Widgets
- Find the PM: Promo Image widget and drag it into the Featured 1 sidebar position (or any other).
- After dragging a widget into your sidebar, you will begin adding the information and adding an image. Note: You may notice my title has a ! (exclamation mark) in front of it. When using the “Remove Widget Titles” plugin, this lets you show a title only in the back-end but hidden on the front. In our case, we want to hide the widget title. The # sign you see gets replaced with an actual URL:
- Repeat the above steps for the next Promo Image widget.
- Click “Save & Publish“
