How to add a Bloglovin’ icon and a Custom icon to a wordpress blog sidebar.

I was having a bit of trouble working out how to add a bloglovin’ icon to my wordpress sidebar, and I couldn’t find any answers in the wordpress support area, neither could I find any helpful blog entries through google. But I worked it out in the end.

1. First things first you need to do is create a bloglovin account.

2. Once your logged in, go to Account> Your Blog.

3. Click on the  + Claim Blog button and type in the address of your wordpress blog.

( Most people could probably figure this part out for themselves but I managed to get lost, so here’s hoping I can help someone!) anyway…

4. At this point have a new post ready in your wordpress dashboard (in another tab), then, when bloglovin’ give you a code to paste in , to verify your blog, paste it into the HTML layer of your post-then publish it. You  can then click the  claim blog button under the code (in the bloglovin’ tab) and it should then say your blog has been verified.

5. Now, to get the icon you want in the sidebar, first ( in your wordpress tab ) go to Appearance> Widgets and find the Text widget and move it right, into the sidebar bit. ( you might have to re-add any widgets you automatically had in your sidebar,like catagories, if it’s the first time you’ve customized your widgets page)

6. Now go to your bloglovin’ tab and go to Account > Widgets. Now pick the widget you want in your sidebar and click Get this icon! Then copy the code that you are given.

7. Back in your wordpress tab make sure you’re in Appearance > Widgets then click the little arrow next to where in says Text in your Sidebar drop-down. Paste the code into the text box and remember to SAVE. :) Now if you visit your site the bloglovin’ icon should be in your sidebar.

I didn’t think that would be so long-winded , but if it helps…

In addition, I’ve recently looked into using a custom image for your bloglovin’ icon..

1. Create your image using photoshop, of whatever art software you want.

2. I uploaded my image to flickr, but upload it to somewhere on the web.

3. I opened my widget page and put a new basic image widget into the widget area.

4. I then went back to where my image was on flickr, right clicked, and pressed ‘copy image location’.

5. I then pasted the location into the ‘Image URL’ space in the widget. Then go to your bloglovin’ page and copy the link from the address bar.

6. Then I copied the link into the ‘link URL’ space in the widget. Then just remember to save! :)

Hope this helps!

    • Reply quietrebel 2nd April 2010 at 5:23 pm

      Sorry it’s taken so long to reply. I’m afraid I don’t know much about invite widgets. The only way I can think that you could do it, is to put up a text widget in your sidebar asking people to leave a comment requesting to join, then you could invite them using the Authors tool under the ‘Users’ tab. Hope this helps.

    • Reply quietrebel 1st September 2010 at 6:01 pm

      I think deleting the post after verification is ok, I think I probably did it. I pretty sure you would see the copy text in a new post, but I’m not 100% certain.Hope this eases your mind.

    This really helped and now i have my bloglovin link visible, but its at the bottom of the page.
    I’d like it to be on the side like yours but i don’t know how to do it?
    I have a wordpress account.
    Could anyone help me?

    • Reply quietrebel 14th August 2012 at 10:21 am

      The link will be at the bottom because it is probably in a Footer-cell – a sidebar for the bottom of the page. Some themes don’t have sidebars, but most do. If you go to ‘Appearance’ then ‘Widgets’. At the right of the page there will be drop down menus titled ‘Sidebar’ and ‘Footer-cell left’ and things like that. If you transfer your bloglovin widget to the ‘sidebar’ menu – then save – it should come up at the side of your blog page. If you can’t find the ‘sidebar’ menu on your widget page then I would try ‘Appearance’ then ‘Theme Options’ and see if you need to enable a sidebar. If there is nothing like that then your theme probably doesn’t support a sidebar.
      I hope this helps!

      • Reply quietrebel 14th August 2012 at 10:25 am

        Hi again,
        I looked at your theme and I’m afarid it doesn’t support a sidebar, only footer-cells. You could change your theme to one with a sidebar if you want, all you posts and content will transfer automatically.

    Hey! Thank you for this post. Neverttheless, I don’t understand why I still can’t claim my WordPress though. I’ve put the link in a old post and published it, but Bloglovin keeps saying it can’t find the link on my blog -_-

    Hope you can help me!


    • Reply quietrebel 16th November 2012 at 7:53 pm

      Hi there. I’d try publishing a whole new post to put the link in so Bloglovin can detect it straight away on your font page. I don’t know if that will work but it’s worth a try. I do hope that helps :)

    I’m so glad I found this – I usually spend forever trying to figure these kinds of things out. Your tutorial is awesome! I hate to admit this but I’m not sure what the “html layer” of a blog post is. Could you help me out?! Thanks!!

    • Reply quietrebel 24th September 2013 at 9:15 am

      I’m glad it is helpful. The html layer is the ‘directions’ for your text, it tells it if it should be centered, etc. In wordpress, you can find the html layer on the post page. Where the ‘kitchen sink’ is, with bold, italis, add link, etc. The the far right of that there are two little tabs, one says Visual, the the other text. You will find the html layer if you click on the text tab. I hope that helps!

    • Reply AD 10th September 2014 at 10:54 am

      Hi there, Sorry it took a while to get back to you, I’m afraid I’m not sure what the problem might be, if you go back to your widgets page is the bloglovin’ text widget in the sidebar section, or has it moved to the ‘Inactive Widgets’ section at the bottom of the widgets page? If it is still in the Sidebar area I would check the ‘visibility’ tab in the expended text box, make sure its not hidden of anything And try saving again. Other than that I’m not sure what the problem may be, I hope it works out for you!
