reference for picture
hey, I can’t make any reference for my header-pictures in a post. I use the twenty-sixteen-theme. does someone have an idea how to add a reference or at least a licence to a header-picture? if I write s.th. in underline or title, nothing happens.
The blog I need help with is openpuma.wordpress.com.
I am not really sure what you mean when you say “reference”. Can you share more information on what’s happening? I will do everything possible to get the bottom of this and help fix it.
thanks for your fast answer. I mean a source of a picture, this could be the name of the photographer or an url and like mentioned I would like to add the licence (creative commons..) of a picture. In the backend of my wordpress-page I can add an underline ot a title for a picture, but if I add sth. here, this does not occur on the blog.
Thanks for your help!
