How to add picture to blog?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I can't see your site without a password, but I am assuming you want an imge in the blog post listing.  In 7.1 Go to pages in edit mode select blog, then choose the post you wish to edit. Up on the header of the blog is a gear icon, choose that and a panel comes up with content in the window. An image can be inserted there by hitting the insert dot and adding an image or gallery block among many other options. At the top of that panel is an options tab to the right of content. There you add a thumbnail image which shows up in a blog summary block. You also have the option of adding a separate social sharing image for FB or other sites. 

7.0 works pretty much the same way, except when you choose edit from the list of blog posts it opens that panel right then.

I gave this answer to another member with the same question and just as confused. 

 I can understand the confusion. Let me see if I can help you out. Images can go on the blog page header and also as the header of each post. So lets start at the very beginning of a blog post  with the very first thing you do.  Go into config, choose pages, then choose blog page. At that point the blog "summary" page comes up on the right with  a list of posts on the left.  The blog summary page  isn't the same thing as a summary block on a page, which is important to know. At that point you create a blog post, by clicking the + sign at the top of the left side of the page or if you have a blog post then you would want to go into edit. That is done by choosing the little thumbnail down the page under that + sign and click edit. Once you do that the post opens up, and at the very top of the page you have the title of the post or a note that says no title. You can click on that or on the gear icon on the top right corner of the page. The edit mode panel opens for the post. There you enter your title and where it says "write here", you hover over that and an insert dot shows up, click that dot, another smaller  panel opens with all kinds of blocks and options in it, one of which is an image block. You add one of those and edit it to add a picture which will show up on the post but not on the main blog "summary list" page, not yet anyway. To get that to happen choose the options tab in that  blog post edit panel. There you have a little window that says upload, if its empty, or edit if it isn't. If you want a new image, delete the one that is there and upload a new one.  Save everything once you have your pic uploaded, you save by choosing done. 

There you have it, not as simple as pie, but not that bad of a procedure. If you need any more help don't hesitate to post here and ask.
