I see in the text how I should just be able to upload a photo from my computer – but the button doesn’t exist on my screen. I have tried it on both IE 8 and Firefox 3.6.
I tried the Alt Shift M and it allowed me to link to a photo from a website – but not upload one from my computer. I guess I could upload the photos to a flicker account (which I would have to create) and then load it from there.
I would also like to add a YouTube Video – I have the embedded code – how do I do that?
First question, are you signed into the blog as an admin? If you are a “contributor” then you cannot add images.
Log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then have another look at the editor. I’ve included a few links below for you to review on the use of the editor, adding images, and also on embedding youtube videos in your blog.
