How to add "About Me" in Sidebar

How can I add a circle image & text below to my sidebar, like this:

Hi there,

Use a Text Widget and add the shortcodes below:

[x_image type="circle" src="http://localhost/x/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/testimonial-3.jpg" alt="" link="false" href="#" title="" target="" info="none" info_place="top" info_trigger="hover" info_content="" class="img-centered"][cs_text class="cs-ta-left"]Here is a sample text.[/cs_text]

The shortcodes above are the Image and Text shortcodes which you have options to change things around.

You can also add the image and text manually using HTML code in the Text Widget and style it appropriately using CSS code.

To add the Text widget you can simply go to Appearance > Widgets menu.

Thank you.

I put the shortcode into the Text widget but it’s only appearing as the text… What do I need to change? Sorry I’m very tech-illiterate with all of this :frowning:

Hi there,

You need to make sure that the Cornerstone plugin is installed and activated. If you do not have that plugin go to X > Overview menu and wait for few seconds and get back to the plugins menu and the plugin will be installed automtically.

If you still have problems kindly get back to us with the URL/User/Pass of your WordPress dashboard using the Secure Note functionality of the post to follow up the case.

thank you.

Thanks. The image is not showing up, I’m not sure I’ve done it correctly… have sent Secure Note with my login details


You need to change the image url(http://localhost/x/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/testimonial-3.jpg) with your own.

I went ahead and change it -

Please check.


Thanks so much Paul, much appreciated! :slight_smile:

You’re welcome.
