How Do I Add An Image Into A Blog Article Or Forum Post


To add an image to a blog article or forum post, you must first be in the editor for the article or the post. Click on the "image" icon in the editor bar as seen below.



Clicking the "image" icon will open the image uploading manager as seen below. At the top, choose whether you wish to upload an image from your computer or by using a url.



Once done, click the save button to finish. The uploaded images will be inserted into the document automatically.

How Do I Edit Uploaded Images?


To edit and image you must be in the article / post editor. Mouse over the image as seen below.



After mousing over the image, a pencil icon will appear. Click on the pencil icon to open the image editor as seen below.



In the image editor, you can edit the various properties of the image in question. The most important function is the size function.
**By default, images are uploaded as thumbnails. To make an image appear as its original size, use the "full size" option.
**To adjust the image size manually, click on the image in the editor. Boxes will appear around the image. Use the boxes to resize the image.

How Do I Delete / Re-Insert uploaded images


To delete an image, simply click on the image in the editor box and hit "backspace" or "delete".
This, however, does not delete the attachment from the article or post. If you wish to delete the attachment or re-insert the uploaded image, you must first open up the attachment manager (see image below).



Once in the attachment manager, there's two important areas. The "home" area contains previously uploaded pictures which you have access to. To add an image uploaded in a prior article or post, drag the image from the "home" area to the "attachments" area.



The "attachment" area shows all the attachments linked to the article or post.

  • To re-instert an image, click the check mark of the image or images you wish to add to the article / post and click the "Insert Inline" button.
  • To remove an image, mouse over the image and click the "x" button at the top right of the image.
