This section of my “how to …” library (
) is to show how to insert pictures and external web links into your posts.
When you are writing your post, to insert a web link, click on the “globe” icon above where you write your text, as pictured below.
You will see a dialogue box open that says the following “what name should be shown?” this means that you have a choice on how you would like to
present this link, you can either leave it blank and press OK, which will show the whole link in your Post (eg www.abovetopsecret.com...
) or you
can write something like “link” to keep it shorter, this will only display the word “link” in your post but the web address of the link will be
hidden. Then click OK.
Now inset the address of the web site you wish to link to, (don’t forget that the full web site address is needed, ie www.abovetopsecret.com...
not just www.etcetc ….) then once you have input the address please press OK. This will now put the link into your post.
To insert an Image, it is very similar to the insertion of a link, when writing your post, click on the “Monitor with palette” icon as pictured
You will now see a dialogue box appear saying “Please enter the URL of the Image you wish to insert” (see below) just place the web address of the
image that you have found on the web (the address for the image can be found in the same way as in the Avatar tutorial) then press OK, the Image will
be inserted to your post.
I hope this has been of some use.
