problem with images (2 posts)

    How do I insert images in my pages ? Do I have to upload the image first or can I do it direct from my desktop computer ? Is it best to write the page first in Word or similar, with pictures and words, and then upload that page ? (I tried this but got the message - Unable to create directory /hsphere/local/home/jmerrett/jjjb.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2006/04. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
    Any help gratefully received

    1. Images. You can upload them in (at least) two wyas:
    a) via your FTP client
    b) from the admin panel when you write a post
    (if you got an error, it means you must change the permissons - chmod 666, for example - on your wp-content folder, which is the 'parent')

    2. Close your Word application and NEVER open it while working with WordPress :)
    Write your posts in the admin panel, write them in a plain text editor like Notepad - but never in a word processor!
