Images In Comments

To insert images into comments, type the code on the line below into the comment box. Replace the url (web address, in blue) which appears between the quotation marks (after src=) with the url of the image you wish to post.

<img src="https://boadiceaschariot.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/my.jpg" />

The new Chariot is much more tolerant than the older version of the size of the image you’re adding.   However, if you’re starting with a very large picture or one that’s a bit too small, you may want to add a width command to define the size of the result in your posted comment.   To do this, type width=”xxx” after the last quote mark, but before the /> (with at least one space before and after it), where xxx is the desired width in pixels.

Please remember that –

  • If your image starts off being very small, it will look awful if you blow it up too much.
  • If your image is very large to begin with, it may take ages to load, but will still look OK.
  • If you start with a picture which is somewhere in the range of 500 px to 1,000 px, all should be well.

You can type anything you like before this code, and anything you like afterwards.
The code does not have to be all on one line.

Yes, you can copy and paste the code directly from this post – and then change the url, of course.

PS: The image can be anywhere on the web, but it’ll probably be safest if you upload it to the Media Library. Once it’s uploaded, click on edit (in the Library entry) and you’ll find its url which you can copy and paste into the code in your comment. But you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to.
