Reblogger of my Post, and cannot see it on his Blog?

  1. Someone reblogged me (has only ever happened a few times

    Is it actually possible to moderate 'what and who' reblogs? May eventually mark this as private then, at some point as is kind of personal *not by much tho* Just Map It ~ I miss Queensland
    was just trying something that many have done lately this 'map' thing....

    Dubious, as I cannot see it at his blog?

    Now I guess, the obvious thing is that he marked it as 'private' I guess... it's still 'creepy' to me..

    The blog I need help with is apanache.wordpress.com.

  2. Tired now and weary, a little upset about 'issues'

    Just discovered 'where' he had reblogged it on my Dashboard under 'Discussion' and where he had reblogged it to.. so all is well, just not his 'main' blog.. as I said have not often been reblogged so unaware of methods if any (and of content control, if any).

    If at some point there is an answer to the rest of my question ie, Having some control over content that can be shared this way.. like the rss feed perhaps? Certainly not that important. Will search support sections..

  3. Excerpt from thread Link Below.. based on the info with reblogging being so rare for me, I will probably skip it, but it others or myself do.. seems this is the best information out there..

    No... wp.com users cannot add/edit the HTML (or in this case the PHP) files. I'll try to explain as best as I can.

    You know, when you add a photo to your post, you click the media button, upload the image to your blog (or link it from another URL) then you click the "insert into post", right?

    Well, after doing that, you would switch to the HTML Editor, like it's explained here:

    http://csswiz.wordpress.com/about/

    Then you will see the HTML code that's behind your post. After switching to the HTML editor, you would need to replace the existing HTML for the image that you just added with the code I provided; of course, you would need to make the necessary changes so that your image is displayed. Basically, the only things you would need to change in the inline CSS are the values of the "background" property as well as the "width" and "height" properties. Those would be the bits in capital letters:

    <img style="background: transparent url(YOUR-IMG-URL) 0 0 no-repeat; border: 0; height: IMG-HEIGHT; margin: 0 auto; padding: 0; width: IMG-WIDTH;" src="http://tfockler60.files.wordpress.com/YEAR/MONTH/nothing.gif" alt="Helghan Soldier" title="Helghan Soldier" width="IMG-WIDTH" height="IMG-HEIGHT" />
    You would also have to upload the "nothing.gif" to your blog and point to it as shown in the example above (that's why I put YEAR and MONTH in caps because those will be different in your case).

    You'd have to repeat this process with every image you want to post (however, you won't have to upload "nothing.gif" everytime you want to do this because you can always point to the same image).

    The drawback is that it can be a laborious task if you have LOTS of images...

    I hope this clarified the process better?

    @devblog. THANKS! That is a perfect explaination. I got it! Sorry I can be a bit slow with learning this stuff but being out of the programming end of things for almost 12 years (even with my self inflicted determination to continue my studies on my own) has left me a bit behind the learning curve. So, yes thanks again. You made it very clear and I do appreciate it greatly!

    Oh may I have your permission to share this information with this explaination with others here on my blog? It would be a great service to them I am sure given the situation at hand with the "repost" this button. I will give you full credit of course.

    You're welcome.

    By all means, share away. I don't mind at all.

    @ Devblog and TimeThief. I have added the information you provided as a Mini Tutorial at the Newbie Skool. Thank you both again for sharing this. Since there seems to be a fairly small number of members who will see it here in the forums I believe that making it available via my blog will help many since that blog seems to be growing nicely. I have credited both of you as is proper to do. Here is a link to the Tutorial itself if you care to take a look.

    and if the mood strikes...comment away. LOL

    Thank you, tfockler60.

    I just left a comment on your blog making two small clarifications.

    Great post, btw.

    Three cheers for devblog!
    Covering your images in this way also means your images won't show up when someone "Wordpress Reblog"s it! I have tested it!

    See my experiment in this post:
    How to prevent the first image of your blog post from being “Reblog”
