Inserting Image Into Posts (7 posts)

    Could someone (or has someone) done a step-by-step image insertion routine? Example: 1) I am reading a blog; 2) it has a nice chart or photo I want to refer to in my blog; 3) I write a paragraph in my blog on the source and why I think it is interesting; and 4) I copy the chart/photo into my post for illustration. What are the steps I must take witin 1.5 Kubrick? Must it be a whole lot more complex than writing the paragraph and pasting the image into an email? If so, sign me "Spoiled Emailer" ;-)

    1. Click the [img] Quicktag.
    2. Enter URL for the image, click OK.
    3. Enter descriptive (alternate) text for image, click OK.

    That's pretty much it. If you want to place the image on your site and link to it there, you'd first need to upload it from your pc. You can do this either through the Upload feature in WordPress, or with a ftp program.

    Thanks, Franz. If I upload the image to my pc, what then the the URL?
    I feel that this is a VERY simple question, but that's where I'm at. It's going to be awhile longer before I metamorphize into a geek.

    Uh, Kaf is fine.

    "If I upload the image to my pc, what then the the URL?"

    Well, if by "to my pc" you mean to the server where blog4.org resides, then it would end up being something like:

    http://www.blog4.org/wp-content/image.jpg

    You can use WordPress to upload files, but first under Options > Miscellaneous, make sure Allow File Uploads is checked, and both 'Destination directory' and 'URI of this directory' have the correct information.

    'Destination directory' requires a full path on the server to the directory you wish to upload to. (The recommended path displayed should provide a good example.)

    'URI of this directory' is just the URL to it, so if you use the recommended, this would be:

    http://www.blog4.org/wp-content

    Uploading through WordPress (Upload tab) should be fairly straightfoward. Here's a little more info on it:

    Getting a handle on the business of uploading can take a bit of effort, so ask if you need more help.
