May 9, 2012 at 4:06 pm #886277 diaryofanegressMember Timethief, it’s not working… When I try to enter the URL for example: http://www.cats.com It comes up with a big red “X” next to the the URL space. I’m not able to upload any pics. May 9, 2012 at 4:13 pm #886283 raincoasterMember That is not an image URL. You need to familiarize yourself with the difference between the URL of the website and the URL of the actual image. An actual image will end in .jpg or .png or something similar. It will never end in .com. May 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm #886284 timethiefMember raincoaster nailed it. You can upload the following image types to a post or page on your WordPress.com blog: .jpg/.jpeg .gif .png See here for troubleshootings images tips May 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm #886296 diaryofanegressMember Ok.
