    This is in response to a wonder-aloud from @abram.

    To add the “ALF blogs” to your blog/website:

    • Go into your Widgets (hover your site name on the admin bar).


    • Delete all the widgets in the Left Sidebar section
    • Note: the left sidebar section is not currently active
    • Scroll down and find the “text” widget add it to the Left Sidebar section
    • Copy the code below and paste it into the the text widget

    Text Widget

    To create the ALF blogs widget paste in the following html into the “text” widget:

    (note: this code will have to be updated manually from this page and all other pages it appears on)


    <h3><a href=”” target=”_blank”><img class=”alignnone” src=”” alt=”ALF-circle-01″ width=”224″ height=”84″ /></a></h3>
    <td width=”70″><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Tomis</a></td>
    <td width=”70″><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Nancy</a></td>
    <td width=”70″><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Bear</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Ryan</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Charlotte</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Drew</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Abby</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Dan</a></td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Nina</a></td>
    <td style=”text-align: left;”>Lacy</td>
    <td><a href=”” target=”_blank”>Abe</a></td>


    • Now you need to make the Left Sidebar widget area active — navigate to Customize (under Appearance)
    • Under Content and Layout click on Blog (Posts Page).</i>
    • Toggle on “Show left sidebar”


    Activate Left Sidebar


    As you can see, the names of the ALFers appears with the css settings of the blog/website that you’re adding it to. So, depending on your setting, you may need to edit the settings in typeface so that widget text is smaller or bigger.

    If I had an About Me page on my blog, I would probably add this widget. I don’t right now, so I’m going to remove it. Hopefully this was helpful for @abram and anyone else playing with the widgets.
