How do I add an image to my sidebar?

You can add an image to your sidebar using the Embed HTML widget option.

First, you'll upload the image to your account. Go to Library  >  File Manager. In the right sidebar there's a place to Upload a New File. Once the image is uploaded, the page will refresh, and you'll see the file listed on the left side. Click the Filename. Copy the URL from the address bar.

Then create a new "Embed your own HTML" widget under Weblogs > Design > Organize Content. Choose "Widgets" under the Categories menu, select 'Embed your own HTML' and then use the "Add this Module" button.

Paste the URL you copied into the Notes section. It should look something like this:

http://example.typepad.com/image.jpg

Change it to this:

<img src="http://example.typepad.com/image.jpg" />

To link the image to another site, you would add the link code, so the final result would look something like:

<a href="http://typepad.com"><img src="http://example.typepad.com/image.jpg" /></a>

If you are using a Mixed Media template that does not allow for widgets, you can follow the same process, but instead you would use a Notes TypeList, which you can create under Library > TypeLists.
