Helpful tip for adding photos to a comment

posted on 27th of october, 2009

I have noticed in a few previous blogs that people are having trouble adding an image in the comments section. It just shows up as (img r) number (img r) or (img l) number (img l).
When you add a photo to a comment you need to remove the "l" or "r" from the "img". The "l" means left and the "r" means right and it's there to help you arrange your photos nicely in your blog. It doesn't work in comments. I hope this helps anyone having a problem with this. ( Maen and Dessie explained this to me not long ago 'cos I had the same problem. Cheers Guys! )

Have a great day!

Just trying out :-)

 Bird painting 

By the way this painting was done by a 90 year old lady. She is so busy knitting, stitching painting ....... and she gets paid for what she does.

Surprise Dessie! I've changed my profile photo to my fav pic and added my name to it but it hasn't filtered all the way through the system yet. It still shows the flower without the name in some places and me in others. lol. So I could show up in any form anywhere!

I couldn't recognise you, Carolyne! You've changed your profile photo! And just when I saw my name here, I opened my eyes widely and saw your name LOOOOOL

By the way, this is my first attempt to post a pic from the blog! I have always done it through the message boards! :))))

Good point, yes. I forgot about that. Cheers Bradcalkins :0)

If you post from the message boards, instead of from the blog it also works without having to change the automatic string (because it doesn't add the l or r).
