2017 Student Blogging Challenge Badges Are Here!

 

Here are the new 2017 badges ready to add to your blogs.

You can either add the badge to your a sidebar using the Image Widget or by pasting the image URL into a Text Widget. Both options are explained below:

2. Go to Appearance > Widgets.

10.  You should now see your image widget in your sidebar!

Using a Text Widget

1. Go to Appearance > Widgets.

2.  Add a Text widget to your sidebar.

4.  Copy and paste the following code into your widget:

<a href="http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/"><img src="https://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/files/2017/02/sbc2017-12xpnkp.png" alt="Student challenge 2016" width="200" height="200" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2614" /></a>

    • G’day Reese,
      Thanks for leaving the link to your blog. Remember if you want me to visit your blog, you need to leave the URL of the post or page you want me to read, rather than just the general blog URL.

    • G’day Zac,
      Just a reminder I only visit blogs where you leave a link to the actual post. I explain a bit more about that in the Week 2 post about commenting.

  1. Hi again Miss W.,
    I copied the code into the text widget and it is saying that the image cannot be found. Instead of the badge appearing on my blog, there is only a Question mark. I was wondering if you know how to fix that. Thank you- Olivia

    • Hi Olivia,
      It did the same when I tried to add using a text box, so I have handed it back to the Edublogs team to fix. It is probably just a simple thing added or deleted from the code that will cause the problem.
