E-mail Print PDF

This may be old news to someone experienced with CMS and websites, but for someone new to blogging, this information may be helpful.  Many people who blog may create the content locally on their PC, in Word for example, and then paste the information into the blog.  This works great to capture text and basic formatting, but if you have images, you may wonder why those images don't display. 

In short form, the answer is that you have to upload images to the blog site before you can use them.  The steps listed below will help detail how to accomplish this...

  1. Once you are in the editor to write or edit a post, click the "Add an Image" button.
    add wordpress image
  2. Now you will select the image stored on your computer.  First click the "Browse.." button and locate the image on your PC.  Next, click the "Upload" button to load it to the webserver.
    upload wordpress image
  3. After hitting "Upload" a new screen will appear. Here you can provide a title for the image file, a caption (used by screen readers), and a description.  You can also choose how the image will be aligned in your article and its size.  After making your edits, click "Insert into Post".  This will add the image to the article you currently have open.
