It looks like you have some great answers here Henry.

Did you manage to find out how to add images to your website blog?

Hi ........... thanks for the encouragement. I haven't had a reply yet solving my query about adding images. About 13 hours ago I messaged AbieAJ with my EXACT position, and hope that this will help him help me pinpoint where I am going wrong. We are probably in diffferent time zones, so no doubt when he reads it and has the time to advise me, that he will do so..

Regards

Henry

Henry, I read your notes to Abie.
Can you get into the Dashboard of your website from WA?

Can you bring up a post? I can then work you through putting an image in if you like?

Hey Henry, AbieAJ has provided you with the links. You can find SiteFeedback and SiteComments also under the Websites tab.

The idea is to leave feedback or a comment on another person's website to earn credits. Then, you can use these credits to request feedback or comments on your site.

site feedback is for getting other people's opinions on your website, design, content, layout, etc.

SiteComments is for getting other people's comments on the specific article on your site.

Hi ..... I need to obtain credits for my own posts and to get credits I have to view someone elses. So any one requiring their blog to be vetted will do.

Thanks

Hi and thanks Abie.

You might have gathered that the WA/WP website set up has almost totally beaten me into submission.

I've gone though these training sections time and time again, and although I'm slowly improving regarding the website build, this section has taken me weeks not days. (I joined WA more than a month ago!!) in the last 5 years or so I've built about 12 or so websites, but not with WP as I have never been able to master it. My concern is that buidling websites is such a basic, integral and importanf part of blogging that if I cannot master it efficiently it will force me to stop. And i really do not want to.

Is it possible to build tthe site directlyfrom WP as this might uncomplicate it?

Thank you for your interest and advice.

Regards

Henry

Hi …………. I hope that if I can tell you my EXACT problem it will be easier for you to advise me.
The process that has stumped me is “Adding Images with WordPress”.
Training Class 2 Level 6 – Video “How to Find & Add Images to your Website” at 9 minutes 48 seconds into the video.
The video screen shows WP with a black block down the left-hand side and in the top left corner of the white section ‘Edit Post’ and in a small block to the right ‘ADD NEW’.
Kyle instructs to go to the small block on the left-hand side slightly lower down within the white section saying 1Add Media’
My WP page does not have black block down the left-hand side, nor does it have ‘Edit Post’, ‘Add New’ or ‘Add Media’.
It has ‘Posts’ and ‘Add New” but it does not have ‘Add Media’ and there are other minor ‘differences.
Does this help you to help me?
Regards

Henry

Absolutley, you do not have to use Site Content, you may directly built in your WordPress sites back office.

You may install the classic widgets plugin and with the classic editor.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-sidebars/
https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-widgets/

Initially you may download to your PC and then upload .zip files to your WordPress sites back office.

Or go to Plugins > Add new, input classic widgets, install and activate.

However in the standard view you may click the plus to add something or the three dots and choose to remove a block from the drop down menu.

However there was an update from Kyle regarding this, you may not have the option to choose the Classic editor in Settings > Writing and if so, you'd have to work with the Block editor instead.

If you edited a document in site content and published it, future edits has to be done in WordPress. Site content and WordPress work independently.

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

I suggest you to see Jay's 14-day webinars going forward

Jays Hope this helps.

You can.

Important thing, not to become overwhelmed however more step by step, moving forward. I can appreciate there's lots to take but I tend to do a bit of studying, a bit of practicing.

However, at this stage content is most important as it is the bulk of our sites and takes a long time to get ranked in the search engines.

Hope this helps.
