Inserting photos into my blog

Travel Forums System Talk Inserting photos into my blog

1. Posted by Beausoleil (Respected Member 150 posts) 5w Star this if you like it!

For some reason, I inserted one photo into my next blog entry and now I can't insert any more photos. I thought it might just be the one photo I was trying to put in but tried several others and they won't go in either. Temporary glitch??? Please don't tell me to upload and relocate them. That is a horrible chore that I just finished.

Any help appreciated. Thank you.

I came back and tried a couple other photos and they inserted so I tried the offending photo again and no luck. I deleted it and re-uploaded it and it still wouldn't go in the blog. Finally I discovered it would go into the blog if I did it without the caption. Since the text directly above it explains it, the caption isn't necessary but I'm still wondering what went wrong. Any ideas?

Hmm, can you send me a link to the photo you tried to insert? There must be something in the title that is throwing off the parser.

Here's the link. I'm going to publish the blog entry right now. The photo is in but the title is not. When I click on the little icon to put in the caption, nothing goes into the blog. The photo itself seems to be okay.

Quoting Beausoleil

Here's the link. I'm going to publish the blog entry right now. The photo is in but the title is not. When I click on the little icon to put in the caption, nothing goes into the blog. The photo itself seems to be okay.

It's the double quotes causing the problem.
If you change the title from:
"Femme voilée" or "Le silence" a sculpture by Luigi Guglielmi
to:
'Femme voilée' or 'Le silence' a sculpture by Luigi Guglielmi
so use single quotes ' rather than " - the problem will go away.

Of course, this is still something for Peter to fix.

Will it be acceptable to use italics instead of quotes? That would make me happier. (and thank you!)

I couldn't figure out how to do italics so did it your way. I'm going to leave the blog alone since it's already published and pretty obvious. At least I know for the future.

Thank you so much.

With the way the captions are done, you can't format the text inside with italics or in other ways. If you wanted to do that - the best option is leave the caption off and insert it yourself in the entry just under the where the photo is inserted. Then you can format however you like.
