Insert Static Image into Markdown

Recommended Posts

One of the pages of my website was previously created using markdown.  I have NO IDEA how to use this.  I was tasked with adding another bio to our bio page - the other bios have photos - I was able to make another bio box, copy and paste from other existing bio boxes and then modify information for the specific bio I am adding and that worked great!  I've tried to copy and paste the image code and http links from the other bio markdowns and then modify for the image that I need, but it's not finding the image.  Every time I reach out to SquareSpace, they say since there's custom code, they can't help me.  

Additionally, I need a pic on my main page to point to the bio that I'm trying to create but I don't know how to do that either.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Please post the URL for a page on your site where we can see your issue. In addition what is the SS URL for the image for the new bio? It has to be loaded into your site first somewhere. Then you can use it in your markdown.

If your site is not public please set up a site-wide password, if you've not already done so.

Post the password here.

Adding a site-wide password does not allow anyone to alter your site. It only allows those with the password to see your site. Please read the documentation at the link provided to understand how it works.

Please read the documentation at the link provided on how to share a link to your site to understand how it works. A link to the backend of the your site won’t work for us, i.e. a url that contains /config/.

We can then take a look at your issue.

I'd do an anchor link from the picture on the main page to the bio.

In a Markdown block on the bio page:
<div id="anchorname"></div>

The "anchorname" can be whatever you want to call the link. If you're doing bios, you may want to do the person's name.   You can put the Markdown block above the image block.

Within the Main page image link enter:   /pagename#anchorname

Your div code is missing a > character, it should be,see bold >

<div id="anchorname"></div>
