Since when did that option get removed? (How did I not See THAT until now!!)

And what happened with all of those images that were uploaded by me and countless others who

NOTICE:
Since this writing, something was changed.

I opened a new 'write a blog' to capture another screenshot, then clicked the 'add an image' icon, which opened to a new box that included all three ways to add an image.

Search for images, or drag & drop, or select from files.

That was not there before, when I started this question, or I would not have.

Weird, that's all I can say.

Thanks for all of the interest, I'm sure there was a lesson in here, somewhere...grin.

Rudy

Hey Rudy,

To avoid your NOTICE, you can add it to your question if you want. Here's a video to show you how: Hope you find this helpful.

That's what I tried to explain but you didn't believe me see my above statement. I listed the steps, you see it so now it works. Moot point to discuss yesterday’s issue sorry... Glad all is well.

--Thanks Trish, yes, I've edited my blogs a questions before. Due to all of the replies, I decided to tag the notice on the end!

Thanks for providing the link, very helpful!

Rudy

I heard you, Brenda! Much appreciated, you were very thoughtful.

Rudy

Sorry you had to go through that. I felt bad for you. I tried to help and another sweet young lady tried to help you too. Well like Shakespeare wrote in his play, “All’s Well that Ends Well.” Problem solved for you. Have a great Sunday.

-- And thanks again for your thoughtfulness, Brenda!

Rudy

In questions panel you may add a comment and attach your image to it.

In WA blogs you can attach images.

So what is the issue here?

Here where exactly? Can you clarify your question thank you.

Rudy,

When my image shown in this screenshot is exactly what you have your first screenshot

You are correct with the first image you cant do nothing, you have the click the image right so you click the image icon.

The 2nd screen shot shows this it shows two things
Drag and Drop, and below that shows blue
said from Files

Ok yours show the same as mine

the second box is for the cover front image any image you have three choices (not inside your blog) its a cover photo (this you know already right?)

1. Add pick an image from Unsplash or other free image you type in Google then you look for that pick it then the cover image shows up as Google then position it

2. Drag and Drop the cover photo image of your choosing

3. Or find images from your computer file.

Then when you are in your blog post you type

then the icon on the taskbar will show the image
you add an image.

The first two screenshots are for the cover photo

Your blog post image is on the taskbar that says image you click that and add the image.

Rudy, nothing has changed. It's been this way for a while.

Show me what you cant do?

-- Thanks for the details, Brenda!

Compare the first screenshot image to the second...what seems to be missing?

If you answered : (See Screenshot below) You would be correct.

My point in all of this is the option to drag and drop/upload your image files in the cover image is no longer there. It Is Missing.

Yes, you can still add images, but you are selecting only from the WA library...based on the images provided by both myself and Brenda.

And you still have that option, as shown in the second screenshot offered by Brenda. When you add an image by selecting the image icon while writing your post, there you will have the option to drag & drop, or select from your own files.

However, you no longer get it both ways...

Contrary to belief, the statement it 'has always been that way', I have to disagree. If it were, then this question would have been a moot point, n'est-ce pas?

This is new since the WA upgrade.

I hope this provides an end to the confusion.

Thanks, again Brenda! I appreciate that you took the time to spell this out...

Rudy

Ms.Kida has been showing you but I think she doesn't understand you. I have been here for 4 years I never heard of WA having a media library for images, only WP has that.

I am able to create my own image I click the image and I dragged the drop into the image upload just like Ms. Kida did in hers, she kept showing you how she did it. I feel you are not doing something right.

The only way to get the photo in is to drag and drop it. Take a photo then drag it into the image I wish to show you a video of it but no videos are allowed here.

If you're using a PC, you still can drag and drop, that was how I do my media library in WP I drag the photos in there, for all the images that I want to use. So easy and simple to do.

I think you're thinking of the old way where we could retrieve our images by clicking photos from the file. Is that what you are referring to? If that's the case, we see files but I am not able to do that because that feature doesn't work, because we can drag and drop it.

Welcome to the new modern technology of drag and drop sir.

You know what ms. brenda, I was not thinking of that. What pc version Rudy has does matter. What he sees may not be the same as me 👀. oops!

With Windows 11 PC users still can use drag and drop I have a PC laptop, and I rarely use it but I can do drag and drop but on a Mac, it is better, yes you are right about that.

I hope that’s not the case, Rudy. That would be a real shame if we can’t upload our own images. Maybe this is another temp glitch.

-- Yeah, I agree with you there, a tragedy indeed! Maybe it is a temporary glitch, I hope that whatever it is, there is some resolution soon.

Rudy

Are you talking about all those images that we used to have to choose from, Rudy? I haven't noticed yet, but if they are gone, I hope it gets resolved!

Jeff

I know, huh! As far as I know, the main image that is created for the header of the blog, there is no visible option to upload my own image.

There used to be.

I carefully looked in case it was placed differently, yet to no avail.

I selected the second image from the WA library after hitting the image icon to add an image, yet, no option to add my own there, ether.

Which is good, I guess, because who knows hat happened to all of the images we all have uploaded with our previous blogs, I wonder...

Rudy

What? I am actively writing an article right now and I still see the images button

Here’s is what I see Rudy.

Got to be a glitch. I am actively writing and the image button is there with the upload button.

I still see it Rudy.

Ok. After reading your reply, I went back and snapped a couple of screenshots to explain what I mean.

When creating the blog, you add the title, and select your header image (screenshot 1)

Within the blog post itself, when you add an image, click on the image icon and you see the popup to add image. THIS 2nd screenshot will show the option to upload from computer. I did not see that option when I added that second image via the process I just described.

Rudy

Hmm... odd indeed. let me try it and see from my mac OS

I can add a cover to my post...I cannot upload an image from my computer at that point...

Rudy

Rudy it pulls up the same. Just click that icon that says upload files and it will go directly to your pictures.

Click the little upload icon and it will lead directly to your photos on your computer as shown in my third picture.

rudy look... this is the blog for wa.

I hope that it gets rectified, Rudy!

Jeff

Oh I got our friend. It’s taking me a minute to write and edit all of this plus photos lol 😆 but I am assisting!!

Awesome, Ms, Kida!

I was able to upload images into both Site Content and WP. Have you opened a help ticket is Site Suppoo?

-Mike

-- I am referring to the blog posts here at WA.
I can upload images in WP. Oh, unless you meant WA and not WP...
For some reason the option to upload from computer is not showing on my screen...

I don't use Site content.

Thanks, Mike!

Rudy

You are welcome Let me try to clarify.

Yes I was able to upload into all…the WA blogs, Site Content and on my site on WP.

That’s why I suggested to open a case with Site Support as they may be able to help.

-Mike

- Thanks Mike!
And I understood what you said, pardon me if I gave that impression...

Rudy

No worries…I know you did, but I just wanted to be very sure, that’s all.

Have a great day!

-Mike

-- Of course! Thanks again, Mike!

Under the All category, my messages only go back as far as 30 days.

Why is that?

Rudy

Hi Rudy…not sure why that would be. I’ve checked on my phone and I can see all messages long past 30 days. Hope it resolves for you.

Susan

-- Thanks! Not sure what the problem is, nor why this would occur all of a sudden....

Rudy

No problem in my iphone or ipad I see all of my messages as of today no problems like Kyle explained. It loaded pretty fast. It must be your phone issue if that happens reboot the phone and try again it should remove the skow loading page.

I just tested on my mobile device (iphone) and I am able to scroll far past 30 messages. It just takes a second to scroll.

What type of phone are you using, and what browser?

Hi Kyle,
I'm using the latest Samsung android. Never had this problem before today.

Cache is cleared regularly and phone is updated.

Rudy

So far, Rudy! I believe that I am able to at least see more than 30 days worth!

Jeff

-- From my desktop, yes, the page continually rolls out.

On cell phone, it only shows up to 30 days. Not sure why...


Rudy

🤔 I'm not sure why either, Rudy! I seldom use my cell phone except occasionally to answer WA Blog post comments!

Jeff

Yeah, I use my phone for emails due to the ease of seeing all email accounts in one thread, whereas on the computer, I have to log in and out of each email,which can be a pain...grin.

Rudy

I can understand that, Rudy!

Jeff

To clarify this issue using the WA private messaging:

While using my cell phone, I am only able to view 30 days worth of messages.

There doesn't seem to be a way to load more, see next page, etc.

Rudy

You mean PM's here.. Mine takes a bit to load but then I am able to see all.
