Many of you are scared to death of working with your Dashboard, worried that you will mess up your page and lose the lot, but would like to make your page prettier, your sidebar the way you want it with all the gizmos others have. I have been asked many times how I put a picture, cartoon, animation into a comment. You are worried about codes, widgets, tags etc. So I hope to help you by putting a photograph in a comment as a cooking recipe. Yes. I’m mad !! But it’s easy as making an apple pie. Let’s make an apple pie and show it off in a comment.
NOTE: You can only use this recipe in your own comments. Not other blog comments.
Pastry and an apple
The pastry is a simple piece of code which wraps around the apple
<img src=” ” />
You use this for every picture, drawing, cartoon, animation that you want to show up in a comment.
The apple is where the photograph etc. is located.
I will now go through this step by step in pictures. It’s easy to do. Try it yourself in your own blog.
We already have the pastry <img src=” ” />
Now to get the apple……the photograph of an apple pie from Google
I always keep every picture, music etc, in my Dashboard Media Library for ease of access when building a post or adding to a comment. So I need to get the apple pie into the Library.
Open the Dashboard/Media/Add New. Find the apple pie in the laptop and Open.
So the ingredients are all ready for assembly in the baking dish (the comment)
Click Reply and add the pastry
I need the apple now, the location of the apple pie picture in the Media Library, what shelf it is on.
I like to use lots of tabs on my browser so that I can easily switch from the comment to my Dashboard.
Click on the apple pie picture in the Media Library and click “Edit Image” on the right hand side of the page
The apple pie Edit Media page opens
On the right hand side. File URL. Right click/Select All/Copy
I now have the apple to put into the pastry.
Return to the comment (the baking dish) and Paste the apple into the pastry between the inverted commas
Cook for 10 hours at Gas Mk 20
Note: A picture File URL must be copied from your own Media Library. Copying this post exactly will not work as you do not have access to my Media Library .
