How to Insert Images and Links

Obvi­ous­ly, you’re going to want to insert more than just text in your page — here is how you insert addi­tion­al types of con­tent into your posts:

To insert a link:

  1. Enter the text for the link as you would any oth­er text
  2. Swipe the por­tion of the text you wish to become the link
  3. Click the “Insert/Edit Link” but­ton (the one with the chain)
  4. You have 2 choic­es… you can enter a URL of an site by enter­ing the appro­pri­ate infor­ma­tion ‑OR- you can link to anoth­er page with­in YOUR site by click­ing on one of the pages in the drop-down on that screen

To Insert An Image (and oth­er media):

  1. There are but­tons at the top left of the edi­tor labels “Upload/Insert”.  There are but­tons for images, video, music, and media and they func­tion sim­i­lar­ly.  For images, click on the “Add Image” button.
  2. In the fol­low­ing win­dow, you will need to upload your image.  Select the image from your com­put­er and upload it.  Word­Press will auto­mat­i­cal­ly size it and cre­ate thumb­nails for this image.
  3. When it’s done, the image will show up in your Media Library.  Select the image — it will show you details about the image.  Just click on the “Insert Into Post” but­ton to insert this image.

You can also add an image that is already uploaded — just go straight to the Media Library instead of upload­ing a new image.  How­ev­er, it is some­time bet­ter to upload the image for each post, because Word­Press asso­ci­at­ed uploaded images with posts, par­tic­u­lar­ly when it comes to galleries.

If you are inter­est­ed in cre­at­ing an image gallery, con­tact me and I’ll send the FAQ… it can be a lit­tle confusing.
