‘Testing’ for photos in comments

I have just managed to post a photo in comments…. and without following any complex instructions. SO now I shall test if I can do this again and if I can give good instructions on ‘how’ for others.

Here are two pictures, loaded in the usual way through the add media button??????????




??????????both taken yesterday in the garden.

Now to post these as pictures in comments:

Have the media library open in another tab, so you can flip between the comments screen and the media screen.

On the media page:
Click on the picture you want to post in comments, so that you open it, then once it is open right click on it and copy image location.

Flick to the other page, where you want to post your picture and ‘paste’ –

Post comment, which will now have your picture in it……

  1. Wonderful, in plain bloody English even I can understand!!!
    Will try this when I’m seeing colour in due course, thanks.

  2. Pseu – I always follow Bearsy’s tutorials, which you can find by opening any post and clicking on the ‘images’ tab two lines above the title. (Lovely pics by the way)


  3. I know Bearsy’s tutorials work, OZ, but I can’t get my head around them….and I have found a simpler way that doesn’t involve understanding the code or fiddling with code in any way. Just thought I’d share 🙂

  4. Hello Pseu: Interesting, no idea why this should work. Just checking to see if it works if the image is from another media store. I do not usually use the Chariot’s space to store my pics.

  5. Nym, how can I put this? Your ‘discovery’ had nothing whatever to do with improving on Bearsy’s helpful guidelines. It was WordPress that made it easier to put pics in comments, presumably very recently. I’ve been using ‘your’ discovery in posts for ages!

  6. It’s so much easier, so looking on the bright side, JW, we should end up with thousands of entries for the photo competitions!

    Well done WordPress,and well done Nym for letting us know. 🙂

  7. No, no, no, a thousand times no, Ara. I’ve told you before that in my neighbourhood you’re not allowed to photograph by decree of the scheme’s kingpin. You could take an innocent photo of a bus driving along the road and captured in the background is about five different crimes. your snap could be used as evidence. Ergo, cameras are illegal. 🙂

  8. Araminta – In response to your question to Soutie – he didn’t !!!
    That’s one picture file, not three, that has been previously assembled into one composite. You can tell this by moving your mouse over the images and noting that the hyperlink stays exactly the same for all three.
    You may kick yourself for not working that out yourself !! 🙂

  9. Hi Ara

    Sorry about the confusion (see Bearsy’s 12.01)

    I had the Mail page open and thought let me try the ‘paste’ from elsewhere, I started at the top of the page intending to ‘grab’ the first image that I saw but the first pics were of that nutter in Iraq, then more violent pics I forget of what but possibly Ukraine or elsewhere, I had to go probably halfway down the page to find a pic which I thought suitable for this experiment, I didn’t give it a thought that it was a collage!

  10. Damn. You’ re right, Bearsy!

    It’s quite obvious when one thinks about it. 😦
    But thank you for the explanation.

    Thank you too, Soutie. 🙂
