Another WordPress lesson

This time I have explored using flickr to store then upload photos into my blog. I first created an account with Flickr, easy to do following prompts on Flickr home page, now I will be able to store all photos as we go along and just pick out what I think to be best and most appropriate to insert into this blog.
I experimented by going round the garden to capture a few of the plants in flower at the moment. This Sarracenia is quite spectacular, and the photo displays better than using the WordPress upload system.
Next I will try to work out how to put in a slide show (if that is possible) and a short video.That is enough for one day, my brain has gone into overload  and I have to get a coffee…

  1. Thanks timethief, I am going to try those suggestions.


  2. Hello there,
    I see that you haven’t discovered the Support Documentation link yet. Some refer to this as the FAQs so here it is

    There are three types of slideshows that can be used in blogs. They are slide, rockyou and slideshare.

    Click the internal links after clicking this one and you will find instructions and screencasts as well.

    Happy blogging. 🙂


  3. Hi sali25, Blogging is a great way to increase your learning by reading how others do it. Sometimes can be a bit frustrating when you just can’t get the result you are after…

    Thank you pommepal for your comments on uploading photo in my blog. I appreciate it.

    Your idea about putting photos in FlicKr and later upload in blog as and when they are needed is excellent, I did not think about it earlier.

    I also enjoy reading your blog.

    Thank you again for sharing.


  5. I have a gmail account. Can you suggest where to go for tutorial?

    This Flicker is pretty good, but have you looked at Google slideshows? I have a few on my class blog. You need a gmail account and you have to study a few tutorials, but if you like people to see more than one pic in a slideshow, then it’s good.
