    Thanks for your reply, Luko. I will try it.

    Many thanks for your reply,

    Luko. I’ve managed to resolve this by removing some of the code you suggested.

    I’ll try again to show what I mean.

    This is a link to a screenshot of the Widget I have used: http://imgur.com/FCy4NcD as you can see it IS a TEXT widget. I Click on this and it reveals this TEXT frame: http://imgur.com/aYPYt0e (Can you believe Imgur is telling me I have to wait 51 minutes before I can save and publish my 2nd image! Crazy. Why does anyone use this site). Can I not use Flikr to show you my screenshots? I can upload and publish as many images as I like in minutes with them. This Imgur gallery site are amateurs.

    Anyway, when the 2nd image is published: you will see I did use a TEXT widget and all I want to do is make the ‘Tell me more’ text at the end of the paragraph in to a hypertext link to another page in my website.

    Regards

    I’ve taken another look at the instructions. These are for pages where the HTML code is available for editing. It isn’t accessible inside a widget. All I want to do is keep the text widgets shorter by ending them with the word ‘More . . . ‘ as a link to the rest of the text which is on another page within the same site. Alternatively, how can I create scrolling text inside a widget?

    No, I’m afraid that’s not making any sense to me at all. In the main body of TEXT I can attribute a word or words as a hyperlink. Inside a widget there is no such facility. Just pasting whatever formula of HTML code for a link, along with the text, has no effect. At best the code will show exactly as you’ve written it on your published page. There is no visible code to edit in a widget.

    Thanks for your reply, Ken.

    Had to laugh, only yesterday my GP was taking my blood pressure! Not sure how I have a placeholder where you say I have one. No idea how it got there.

    I have registered with imgur.com. The first image link is http://imgur.com/LoN7D48 but the Direct link for it is: http://i.imgur.com/LoN7D48.jpg

    Sorry, not sure which link you needed so included both.

    The second image link is:http://imgur.com/3tl587r and its Direct link is:http://i.imgur.com/3tl587r.jpg

    I doubt very much that imgur will ever compete with Flikr and other online galleries. I had to wait ten minutes before I could upload my second image. A message appeared to tell me ‘You’re submitting to the gallery too quickly. Wait ten minutes’. And they weren’t kidding. It was a full ten minutes before I could publish my 2nd image. Wow! Back to the age of the old dial up network eh!

    Hope they eventually appear and you can understand my problem.

    Thanks for your reply, Ken.

    I’ll give this a try but I have a feeling I tried dropping the url for the page inside the widget and that is exactly what appeared. Just that. The url reference in the widget. Though I see from your instructions, I may have included the entire url unnecessarily.

    Sorry, unless I can upload a screenshot from my computer I can’t show you what my home page looks like in EDIT mode. Where I entered the URL here there is a question mark.

    Take my word for it, when in Edit mode the text is immediately beneath the two images. But as you can see from the published front page there is a greater gap between the first line of text after the images.

    It’s ok, I have found out for myself how to do this. Rather than using the onboard tools for WP I needed to change the background choice in the theme’s own options.
