    Well I dragged and dropped an image and it seems to work that way. Perhaps you can try uploading your image to a different site and do it that way? I forgot the process I did for uploading an image to the entry. :cry: Also, if you won't be able to see it if you're looking all the other blogs as well, which was already the case.

    In a comment or in a blog? Comments work fine for me, but the blogs don't have the image upload tool.

    All of my old blogs still have images, but when I click to edit them, the images disappear, so I can't even copy over whatever the formatting was.

    tested HTML image tags and a few others--nothing seemed to parse.

    In blog. Are you able to drag and drop the image into the article? I'm not sure about copying and pasting method.

    Dragging and dropping the image into the blog text box just loads the image in a new window, same as if you dragged and dropped an image into any normal browser window. I don't get the dotted line border and the 'drag and drop your images here to upload them'' message that I do when I drag + drop into a comment box.

    I feel like an 80-year-old grandpa.

    This is super weird and I don't know how I missed the thread. I'll pass it along to Nick as he might have some answers.

    Users currently don't have the ability to post images in blogs due to spammers. It's a headache for me since whenever someone edits a Vox Pop post where I've inserted images, they can deleted. I'll see if I get this restriction reversed. In the meantime, you might be able to use <img src= "" /> in the code to get an image uploaded on an image hosting site to show up.

    Sadly, the html doesn't parse. Submitting just posts the text, and then re-editing wipes the code.

    Probably wisely, of course, but also sadly.

    Thanks for the replies, though : ).
