The two previous years I’ve made unofficial widgets for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. This year I’d completely forgotten about it until Paula reminded me. So here they are, as a celebration of the beginning of WPC 2014 – Weekly Photo Challenge 2014, the brand new unofficial widgets:
The widgets are public domain and free to use.
Want to see the widget in action? Look for the widget in my right menu, click the image and see where it leads you. You can do the same thing on your blog: link the widget to your weekly photo challenge entries (tag all your WPC posts with the tag “weekly photo challenge”, then link the image to the tag). That way it’ll be easy for the visitors of your blog to find all your WPC entries.
This is going to be a hard choice.. I need a couple of minutes to make my decision. I think I will never be able to afford a white lens 😀 Thank you very much Max. I’ll let you know which one I grabbed 😀
Thanks Paula. I saw which one you’ve chosen now. I suggest that you link the image to
That way your readers can easily find your previous WPC entries.
🙂 OK, if you think it is best ;). I have now linked the side bar widget for this year’s WPC to my weekly photos challenge submissions, and the one under my WPC post to your blog post :). I think it is only fair :).
Thank you for the link Paula 🙂

These are so good.
I didn’t know about the ‘weekly…’
You should join. There’s a new challenge every Friday, but you don’t have to actually enter on Friday. You can do it later in the week if it’s more suitable for your schedule.
Do you actually have all those looong lenses…lucky you! 🙂
No, these photos were shot during a sale at an event and none of them are mine. I only have one good lens and I use it all the time 🙂 I can’t afford to buy photo equipment like that.
I like unofficial intiatives 🙂
Thank you very much Chris. I appreciate it.
Have a great new year Max!
Really good work:)
Takker og bukker!
Could you have another look, Max? 😀 http://bopaula.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/wpc-beginning-of-a-new-journey/ I hope it is better now 😉
It looks great now with the dots cloned away.
Awesome design! Will decide which one to use 🙂
I did my very first HDR http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/28707/
Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement, CG!!
That’s a beautiful shot of Chicago Amy. It has a dreamy sort of feeling to it. I once painted a painting inspired by Chicago (but I’ve never been there):
That part of the city with the lake on one side and buildings on the other side is a photographic. I love the painting you did, it’s beautifully done and does reflect the story.
I’ll have to give it a try and see if I get it to work. Thanks! They’re great.
Thank you Janet. Keep me updated 🙂
Great job! Think I like the last one best.
Happy New Year! 🙂
They’re all very nice. I think I’ll take advantage of you creativity 😉
Yes, please do!
I like a lot! Especially the first one 😀 Også har jeg sjekket ut Akam-linken du sendte meg 😀 Det virket veldig kult! Neste gang er jeg med!!
Kult! Jeg skal sørge for å gi deg beskjed neste gang det er treff! Det var veldig bra på romjulstreffet.
Sendte deg epost nå.
hei! jeg så den og det virker gøy!! 😀 dagen i morgen er bare litt full, så skal prøve å være der ttil riktig tid
Hmm, interesting choices…
Thank you Sue.
These are nice, I’m thinking about adding one. I’ll let you know if I do.
Awesome. Keep me updated if you decide to use one of them!
I will 🙂
I think I’ve got it up and running, I’ll just need to remember to tag each new one “weekly photo challenge 2014” If you have a moment please stop by and take a look:http://marantophotography.wordpress.com let me know what you think?
I was going to leave a comment in your blog before I went to work this morning, but I completely forgot.
My “official” thank you is up and in this week’s post:http://wp.me/p2owKx-z2 So, thanks again 🙂
Goodness, these are good! If I participated, I’d use the first one. 🙂 I like the link to all of your challenge posts. The one shot in Poland is fantastic! I reckon you’re one talented photographer … and graphics artist too. 🙂
Thanks for the nice compliments George. I prefer the first one too.
Thanks for taking the arty initiative – now I have to figure out how to down load it…
Just right click the image and choose “save as” or “save image as”.
I have a Mac….hmmmmm..lemme try : ) Thanks
Very creative. Could not locate your right hand link though…
If you click the photo under “Weekly Photo Challenges” on the bottom of the right side, it should show you some of my previous challenges.
Edit: Thanks for the reminder. I updated my previous entries with correct tags. Tags were missing, or incorrect, all the way back from 2011!
(Sorry to all bloggers that received pingbacks on ancient posts as a result of this)
Thank you so much! These are gorgeous.
Thank you Fire!

Hi Max, I’d like to use this too, but which widget do I use: “Image”? Because that one calls for a URL and when I view image and put your URL, it keeps disappearing. I obviously don’t know what I’m doing!! 🙂
Hi. You download the image you want to use to your computer, then you upload it to your files in WordPress. (on the WordPress ‘dashboard’ menu where it says media – library).
Then you add an image widget to your blog (also from the dashboard under apperance – widgets).
In the widget add the URL to the photo that you’ve added to your library (my URL looks like this in the widget: https://cardinalguzman.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/wpc-widget2014.jpg).
At the bottom of the widget settings, it say “Link URL (when the image is clicked):”
There you add a link to your posts that are tagged “weekly photo challenge” or weekly photo challenge 2014″.
My link looks like this: https://cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/tag/weekly-photo-challenge/
So, your link would be: http://catbirdinamerica.wordpress.com/category/photography/weekly-photo-challenge/
Hope this was helpful. Just ask if you have more questions.
Thanks so much for your great instructions. I think I got it! Love your widget. 🙂
Just checked your blog and it looks good! 😀
Thanks so much for your great instructions! 🙂 I’ve hardly ever been able to get that image widget to work. I sure hope I can remember those instructions for next time!
I’ll add the instructions in my next post. 🙂
