I've uploaded a photo a post and it's too big. I'd like to edit it, but when I click on the photo in edit mode nothing happens. I've watched Leoemery's video about editing photo

Hi there, Try uploading it again and change the size of it to Thumb size---it is at the bottom right hand of the upload page.



Coach Ed

Here's the thing. Even if I upload it again and change it to thumb size, the original photo will still be stuck right in the middle of my post, unless there's a way of getting rid of it. I"m assuming I can't upload a photo on top of a preexisting one and have the first one conveniently disappear? I just can't seem to remove the original or alter it because I can't get into the edit function. Is there another way to remove it without having to go the 'click on the photo' route?

There is a left --middle--right that you can click right above where you set the size of it.

The picture should have a X ON IT AND THAT SHOULD GET RID of it--oops caps on--

I think that should work--

Coach Ed

Thanks for the suggestions. This is what I ended up doing, after wrestling for a good while and getting nowhere. I clicked on 'Add media' and there was the photo in my media library. I clicked on the photo and it came up on the right with the option to be edited within the post or deleted. I clicked 'edit' and then got the option to make the size different, and now it's the right size.

I still don't know why the photo wouldn't bring up the edit option when clicked on it, but now it does, so the gremlin has clearly moved on to bother someone else. Croninweb, I appreciate you trying to help me! :o)

Your welcome --I though you had cliched the add media--sorry-After you did--- then what I advised is what you did and it worked --great !!!

Authoring & Writing Content
Updated

I'm writing an article which has various parts. I think it would be best divided up. Should I put, for example, 'The best fruit trees to grow in Florida Part 1' on the front pag

Yes, I was going to have a link at the bottom of the page regardless. But it was whether I should have the articles clearly linked to each other as a series in the title (Part 1, Part 2, etc), or just as related, but not sequential, pieces that left me uncertain.

I suppose I'm asking whether, when someone here writes a pillar article that is too long for just one post (as in longer than 300 words), they divide it up into multiple parts. If so, how do they frame that within the structure of their website? Maybe I should just write a really long authority piece...

I would stay away from long articles. Write short ones on a topic but stay away from Part 1 Part 2. I ask questions in my long article to break it up. Ex. Why is being overweight bad, tips on losing weight, does exercise help with weight loss. All questions are surround a very large writeable topic. Hope this helps -

Yes, I see what you mean. The thing is, though, explaining and listing the best fruit trees for NE Florida is not a short or simple topic. We're talking microclimates, types of soil, sun orientation, best trees for surviving sudden freezes and spring heatwaves, trees resistant to diseases and fruit fly, all of which affect what people should think of planting and where they should plant it. The information isn't simple. It's detailed and full of provisos, such as 'Yes, this tree does well in zone 8b, unless you live inland more than five miles, in which case frost will damage fruit set' and so on. It's hard to say anything meaningful in 300 words.

Am I right that 300 words is the average length of a post? I thought I'd read about 'pillar articles' early on in the training which are supposed to be longer and establish your authority in the field.

300 to 500 is considered short

Oh, that is good news! I must have remembered the figures wrong. How long should a typical, thorough but not too long piece be, do you think?

I try to write to 450

Thanks!

Essentially each article would be stand alone, the link at the bottom of each page would just be a convenient way of taking you to the next article without having to scroll back up to the menu to physically chose the next page. I personally much prefer the method of linking at the bottom of the page, far more convenient.

I agree .... Large subject with small piece articles work better and attract viewers.

Thanks! I also much prefer following the links at the bottom of an article to scrolling all the way to the top. That said, sometimes I get very frustrated if an article isn't as thorough as it purported to be in the title or first paragraph and, instead, I'm being made to click on a link to get the info the first page should have given me. If my broadband is slow, yet another click is a total drag. Plus it feels as though I'm being led by the nose. Manipulated.

So, clearly, I must make sure I make the article say what the title says it will, have enough detail to satisfy but not overwhelm, and then have a link at the bottom to even more juicy information on other aspects of the topic.

Thanks so much for your help!

What is the effect of changing the theme of an existing website? I don't like the theme I've been working with, so can I just change it and carry on creating content? Or will I

You can change theme without it affecting any of your installed plugins. You don't need to go through the setup again.

Depending on the theme you choose you may have some formatting to do when it changes. Different themes have different size sidebars sometimes etc and may have images on the home page. Most of your content should be the same, just might need some tweeking.

Thank you! That's a relief!
