    Hi there,
    I can’t seem to insert an image in my post. I’ve read so many articles and my dashboard just doesn’t have the option! It is really frustrating. I’ve got the image in my media library, I just want it to appear IN my post.

    For example, I went to
    Step 5 – says Image Display Settings.. That does not exist on my dashboard I’ve clicked every single button.


    The blog I need help with is

    WordPress.ORG is different from WordPress.COM!!!
    Things that work on wp.ORG don’t apply to wp.COM

    Your link shows that you are hosted for free on wp.COM and here is the support article about inserting images:


    Hi thanks for that. But its that same deal.

    1. Open an existing post in editing mode.
    2. Place your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and click on the Add Media icon found directly above your editor <—— This ‘Add Media’ button isn’t where it says it should be as in the Support.

    At best, the IS an Add Media button to the left within my dashboard. However, when I click it, i get the message ‘are you sure you want to leave this page?’ and there is no “Insert into Post” option to be found anywhere unfortunately.
