How to Put a Creative Commons License on Your Blog

Via Creative Commons

This works on WordPress.com as well as self-hosted WordPress installations.

  • Step 1: In your dashboard, go to the menu item “Widgets”, under “Appearance”.
  • Step 2: Find the widget labeled “Text”, and drag it to your sidebar or footer. Location is entirely up to you. (yeah, that too!)
  • Step 3: Paste the code provided by the CC license chooser in the widget’s text box, and click “Save”.

This should now display the CC mark. You may style the blog as you wish. If on WordPress.com, you have to use inline styles, unless you have a paid subscription and can change all the CSS of your theme.

Use this method unless you strongly prefer editing source files or installing plugins and have good reason to do so!
