So I have three posting areas on my home page (http://nmpolitics.net/index): One is the center column, which is the standard posting area. Then there's the sticky post at top. There are also the sideblog postings in the right column (I use the Sideposts widget for that).
In the sticky and sideblog areas, if I upload an image directly from my computer to the posting, the image appears both on the post page and the home page. If I instead pull the image into the post from the archives already uploaded to wordpress, the image appears with the post, but not on the home page.
This makes things a bit cumbersome. And when I use the same image over and over, it's annoying to have to upload a new copy of the image each time I use it.
My theme is Mimbo 3.0. My host is Bluehost.
