    Create a menu under Appearance -> Menus.

    Add the categories you want to your menu.

    Drag a text widget to header right.

    Paste in or type in the HTML you want.

    wordpress.com does not allow embed code from some 3rd party sources.

    Thank you Andrea.

    A great help.

    One more question,
    we list news under various categories. Once clicked on any Category page, there is news list but without a picture:
    http://oryxsa.com/category/business/

    What should be done to assure there is a picture next to each news listing.

    Thank you !

    Hi there, you can try an HTML weather sticker from Wunderground: http://www.wunderground.com/stickers/

    Click the sticker to obtain the HTML code and paste it into a text widget.

    I’m seeing it here: https://cloudup.com/cd1xljgsKar

    If you’re not seeing it on your end, you might be running something on your computer or in your browser that’s causing it not to display, such as:

    – “Social Connector” feature of Avast Anti-Virus software
    – browser extensions including Facebook Disconnect and DoNotTrackMe

    In the future, if you need help with anything else that is not related to your specific theme, could you please post in the regular WordPress.com support forums? Thanks!
