Still can find "attachment ID"

  1. Hi,
    I am new for blog and have no knowledge of html code writing. I try to including some pictures from my media library into another PAGE as gallery/slideshow.
    I can not find attachment ID under wordpress instruction:

    * Note: To get an attachment ID for an image, go to your Media Library and hover over the image title you want to exclude. You can find the ID in the URL (the number after attachment_id=).

    I went to Media library and put cursor move around on the image title (I hope that's what hover over mean), it didn't show any #.
    What exact steps to get ID from the second option (URL)?

    Appreciate if anyone can help out here.

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

  2. Hi. When you hover over the image title, you should see something that looks like this on your browser's status bar at the bottom:

    ...wordpress.com/wp-admin/media.php?attachment_id=1234&action=edit

    The part I put in bold is the attachment ID.
