could someone please advise me on the following.

1. recently I launched my blog at, and i wanted to include a picture of mine in the "About" widget. When editing you can switch to HTML, so what I is I uploaded a JPG to the server in a folder named "images" and i included a img-tag in the HTML pointing to the image. Everything works fine as long as a visitor is on the main page. From the moment a visitor selects to view a particular post, then the link is broken...

2. How can i add references to LinkedIn, Facebook etc etc in the "About" widget? Mads Kristensen does it on his blog. By the way, the image displayed in his "About" widget stays there even when a visitor moves to another page.

Hey g! What's the HTML code that you're using in your "About" widget? If you're using <img src="~/images/me_150x150.jpg"> or something like that then that could be your problem. Make sure your "hard coding" it like <img src="> and it should work fine. That's how I coded it in mine ( and it works as expected.

As for references to LinkedIn, I don't know how to do that.
