So I'm really new to Wordpress and I'm trying to create a simple widget. I want the widget to list the logos of my site's affiliates (similar to the "check out our shows" section on http://www.howstuffworks.com/).

I also want it to be easy for the administrators to add/remove images from the list of partners. In other words, I don't want to have to modify the widget's code in order to change the partners.

At a very high level what are the steps that I might follow to build this widget?

@Diana's suggestion is very good. But regarding the widget building, you'd have to present some code and what you're trying to do that involves Getting images by metadata... – brasofilo Jul 25 '12 at 11:50

Why not use Links Categories? There you can use images, descriptions, create categories and sort out everything. There would be no need to create a widget as you can use the default WordPress one.

links widget

Case you were to create your own widget, you can query these items with WordPress functions.

@Pace : And case you were to follow this route, this plugin of mine can be handy: Featured Link Image. (WPSE born:) . . . . And other useful plugin for that: My Link Order . . . . – brasofilo Jul 25 '12 at 11:58
Thanks. This is exactly what I'm looking for. @brasofilo I will look into those plugins as well. – Pace Jul 26 '12 at 21:54
