Please will everyone read these notes all the way through; they are quite long, but you may find just the thing you need.
Most people appear to have mastered the arcane skill of adding pictures to comments.
The roll of honour includes –
- Boadicea (of course! She knows her HTML!)
- Low Wattage
Special award to Araminta and Bilby who have sussed out (clever girls) that if you want properly balanced margins, you need to set the width of the image to 592 rather than 600.
I believe Ferret is happy with the process, but I haven’t found an example to check – perhaps I’ve missed it?
I’m sure Soutie knows exactly how to do it, too, but again there’s no example.
Some people are still having trouble.
I have corrected everyone’s mistakes, but please read what I had to do, it may help –
- ColdWaterJohn – you set the width to 640 instead of 600 (or 592); probably just a typo.
- Bravo – you forgot to set the width.
- Tocino – Haven’t a clue what your problem is because all the evidence has disappeared. Persevere and the next time leave the comment where it is so that I can help. I have entered your picture for you.
- Bootsy – I think you’re probably OK with this, apart from typos. I have edited and re-uploaded your oversize file for you. I have also made sure that both your entries are properly visible on Pseu’s post; you’ll have to choose which one you want. Ferret had miscorrected your first attempt, so I corrected it in situ – that is, it appears under his name.
- Janus – I have edited and re-uploaded your oversize file for you, reinstated your post and placed your entry into Pseu’s post. Please be more patient, I cannot attend to everyone immediately. Your problem with understanding stored size as against display size has been answered in your post. Others may also find the explanation useful, so don’t delete it again, there’s a good chap.
The instructions are now on the menu bar.
Using Galleries and Slideshows from the Media Library
Especially for Val
- Create your new post, giving it a title and clicking on the ‘save draft’ button.
- Go to the media Library, find the picture(s) you want and click on ‘Attach’ in the ‘Attached to’ column.
- Enter the title of your post, then click on ‘Search’.
- Locate your post in the list that appears, click on the little round button to select it, then click ‘Select’.
- The next time you try to add an image in your post, you will have a Gallery in the usual way.
Please ask for further explanations if you don’t understand. There are other ways of doing it !!
Extra notes for Pseu
The widget in the sidebar now links to your chosen post for this week’s entries.
I have changed your post, replacing your C&P of my instructions with a link to the instruction page. There is a technical reason for this – the WordPress ‘shortcode’ code does not copy and paste into post editors correctly (from the visual tab – it does from the HTML tab), so your post, although it looked almost, but not quite, right, had a load of duff HTML behind it. Hope you don’t mind.
