How do I add an image to a post???

    Seriously, this should be a no brainer but when i upload a photo it goes to the “gallery” section, claims it’s attached to the post??? But there is nothing there in the ACTUAL post. I must be missing a VERY obvious step.


    The blog I need help with is



    The site linked to your name is not a blog, so we can’t provide support for it.



    oh gosh why does it go to my website not my blog here?



    Galleries will only work with multiple images. Open the post you want the image in, then click on the “add image” button, and at the top of the window that opens, click on the “media library” link, find the image that you want to insert, click on the show button, make any adjustments to the settings that you wish (size, alignment, etc.) then click the “insert into post” button.

    If you are starting a post and are going to upload an image for that post, with the post open, upload the image, and when it is done uploading, a window will appear where you can again set the various insertion options, and when they are set, click the “insert into post” button.



    That makes sense…off to try again ;) I’ll let you know. Thanks much!



    Where is the “insert into post” button?
    OMG I feel like an idiot.

    Could this be a mac or browser related issue???



    Okay found it… the tiniest white on white button EVER! Wow so not intuitive…really threw me!
    Thanks for your help ;)


    Jody, You are welcome, and yes, that button could be more prominent (understatement), there is no doubt. WordPress seems to be a little too infatuated with “subtle” the last year or so.


    when I click the “insert into post” button, the “Add an Image” pop up window goes blank white, with just “Add an Image” and the x to close the little window visible. The image in the gallery or Media Library I selected has not added to the post, still just attached. ???


    @reparirrigation, we need a link to the blog please.


    Everytime for the last 2 days when I try to upload or insert an image into my Blog, it immediately shuts the browser down and asks if I want to restart Firefox. I know its not the best or fanciest thing in the world, but I am trying to learn how to make it better. My blog is



    i’m able to insert images into posts but they don’t expand to full size when I click on them making some images too small to view in the post. my site is

    any help is appreciated



    When you look at the images under the Edit Image icon (the little mountain) make sure you select Link To Image. What does it say now?



    that did the trick. it’s not selected by default. i’m gonna have to remember to check that box.

    muchas gracias!



    I could add an image on my post even though I click the image icon. Consequently, Firefox, the browser I always use, restarts and I have to log in again.



    Can someone help me with my images uploading issue?? I upload the file in a jpeg and then the image doesnt appear, just the file name…. Any thoughts??


    @bearwrangler: Please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We can’t help without that.



    I just started today. I don’t see ANYthing to indicate that the image has been inserted, neither in my blog nor in my About page. What’s to check? Thanks.



    The show button in the media library is not working.. the image i want to show is already attached to my post but its not shown in the preview. so i took media library and tried to add it from there but the show button is disabled/is not working.. what might be the problem?
