I am doing a website for a client. She wants to have pictures in the left sidebar to link to various pages internally. I am using the text widget. The problem that I am having is that all of the links are going to the blog page. I am also using widget logic.

What are you putting into the widgets? It would have to be static HTML links such as
HTML Code:
<a href="http://mysite.com/path/to/page/"><img src="/path/to/image.gif" alt="..." /></a>

This is the code that I am using <a href="http://crememagnolia.net/?page=120">
<img src="http://www.crememagnolia.net/wp-content/uploads/home.jpg" alt="Mag Artists">
</a>

I'm attempting to do this now and I seem to be getting the same issue. I link out using the permalink but when I click the button to the page it sends me to a page that doesn't exist (i.e. an error).

Here is the code I use in the widget:
<a href="http://www.chocolateatime.com/running/ ‎"><img src="http://www.chocolateatime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Running-button-resized.jpg"/></a>

What is the "_id" solution that I seem to be missing?

Any suggestions are much appreciated!!

I should also add that I basically copy and paste the link for the page into the widget area. However, when I actually click on the widget button to take me to the appropriate page I am taken to a different hyperlink

original link of the page:
http://www.chocolateatime.com/running/

page I am taken to when button is clicked:
http://www.chocolateatime.com/running/%20%E2%80%8E

Why is this happening?

Thanks!

Remove the space from after the link URL and add a space before the slash in the image URL.

Hmm I think I did what you suggested by the problem still persists.

Here is the current code:
<a href="http://www.chocolateatime.com/running/"><img src="http://www.chocolateatime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Running-button-resized.jpg" /></a>

Am I missing or misunderstanding something? Sorry if this is a basic question, I'm still very new!

Thanks!

That should work. Your first code gave me the same error as you had. This code does not. Make sure you clear your browser cache or if you have a caching plugin be sure and clear that cache as well.
