    I am very basic with this stuff. How do I make an image that I uploaded appear in my blog? I tried but all it has is the complete path and file name when i preview it, no image. What tag do i need to insert to make a uploaded image appear?

    Which version of WordPress are you using?

    also, how did you upload it (ftp program or wordpress plugin or file manager), do you know where the file is? if so, you should be able to type this in your browser address bar to view the image:


    and, like jpmcc asks, the WP version is important to know.

    Also, good ol HMTL image tags work:

    <img src="http://www.mywebsite.com/images-directory/myimage.jpg" />

    first, however, verify that the file is where you think it is and that it's named correctly. we all have made the mistake of misplacing a file or two.

    Not sure what version I am using. I just post using the online form.


    I used the WP file manager to upload the image. Thanks!

    ooh, out of my depth here, don't know how wordpress.com has stuff configured, but... that said, what do you think the URI to your image should be?

    I'll hop over there and take a look.

    anyone else?

    OK, sport -- I've setup my own wordpress.com blog and tried to recreate what you did, or, what I think you did if you did what I did in so thinking:

    1. added a post
    2. uploaded a picture
    3. saved the post
    4. via drag 'n drop added the picture to my post and hit save
    5. viewed my post and its source

    what i found is that my file was uploaded to here:

    you are using their WYSIWYG, no?

    I did not see any images or (image tags in the source) on your post. try again.

    1. save a post
    2. upload an image
    3. save post (just to be sure)
    4. drag the picture into your post

    if you are using the pop-up add image link, please show us the URI you're using.
