To link to images or upload images:

There are two ways to post an image: use an image web link image (image stored somewhere else) or upload an image to to the show site.

To use a link to an image stored somewhere

  • On posting, you should be in the rich text mode.
  • On the tool bar is an icon of a tree (hover mouse over it and it is says insert/edit image).
  • Click on it and this brings a pop up window asking for the image url. Fill out any of the other things and then click on insert.


To upload an image

  • Click on icon of a tree (hover mouse over it and it is says insert/edit image).
  • Click on it and this brings pop up window asking for the image url. To the right of the image url space is a block with red dots. Click on this block.


This brings up another popup, an image browser.

  • At the bottom of the image browser, click to browse to find your image and then click upload. This will then put the image listed at the top of the image browser window in an image file listing area.
  • In the image listing area at top, click on the file name. This will high light the file name and display the image in that file.
  • To the very right of the image browser window, under the heading of 'operation', is the 'delete' and 'add' operations text... Click on 'add' and this will select the image, close the image browser window, and place the link of that image in the original popup window.
Last step: click on the insert button and the image is placed in the post window.
