Folks, Just some basic how to so folks can link images to posts. Dave H.
Option one : (if you know the link you want to use)
In edit window see button on top IMG. (its the fourth to the left from "Font Color".
highlight the link (needs to start with http:// to the image you want to display and then press IMG
Should see following syntax in the edit window (spaces added so you can read it)
[ img ] http :// ....*****.jpg [ /img ]
if you get a red x and the word image.. means the link is no good.
. is the location where your image is store. Folks use
flicker, photobucket etc
Option TWO (if you don't know the link to the image)
If you want to post an image from another source (see image below)
open web page with the image you want to link to.
