Cannot link allegro 5 library

Hi guys, I finally decided to move on to graphics for c++,yet for the past few days, i have been totally unsuccessful in linking the allegro 5 library to my codeblocks ide. I am currently using codeblocks 12.11 with mingw 4.7 compiler, and have thus donwloaded the allegro 5.0.1 binaries for mingw 4.7. I followed the tutorial given on the allegro wiki step by step, and i have looked constantly on the internet, yet to no avail. I would like to know if for some reason the tutorial is outdated and thus needed to do something else(tutorial made for codeblocks 10.05 and mingw 4.5.2), or that i am missing something crucial that was not stated in the tutorial. Thank you!
