how to write a post in wordpress.

Work off screen where possible.

I’m going to read the FAQs and the help file possibly with a view to printing out sections.

you too can make it blogging sound easy …!

Including a link to an image is a useful referencing practice. – just you watch

opps what?

As I learnt the hard way when I downloaded the image from flickr I published in my blog but because didn’t download the image to my computer or insert a link (the reference code is a URL Address of that image) for copyright of this image I can’t refind this image again if had to source this flickr image.

Responses to Kevin Flaherty post “Vienna” leighblackall Says:hmm, seems that both the image and the attribution did not come through this time. Try following these steps:

1. Edit your blog post

2. In a new window (so that you don’t lose your blog edit) bring up the Flickr creative commons database. Here is a suggested way to go about finding an creative commons image. Flickr creative commons

3. Search through images and click on the thumbnail of the image you like in the search result

4. You should now be looking at the image you like with all the information about it, including title, who by, comment box and other things

5. Right click the image and click “properties”.

6. Copy the “URL” from the properties

7. Now return to the edit window for your blog and click the “insert image” icon on the tool bar. A small window will pop up asking you for the image URL. Paste the image URL you copied into that box then click insert.

8. You image should now be visible on your blog. Resize to your liking

9. Return to the Flickr image page and copy the page address from the address bar at the top of the window.. it will read http://flickr.com/photos/ghhyfyshsh or something

10. With that address copied, return to your blog edit and click on the image, and then click the “link” icon from the tool bar. A new window will pop up asking you for the URL… paste the address you copied OVER THE TOP of the http:// you see in that box

Now publish or save your blog post..phew! it sounds complicated, but so is changing the gears on a car… it will become second nature…Here’s a video that demonstrates the process..
