Learning about the post editor new features

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Hi! to all I'm having a problem uploading images in both the old blogger and draft blogger. I have a photo blog and most of my blogging time goes into uploading photos and all of a sudden it has become really monotonous to upload images on blogger. Most important of it all, neither did I choose the draft blogger or nothing. I'm still able to sign to the old blogger home or whatever, but the problem here is with uploading images. The window pane or console that used appear while uploading image to your post has changed and there is a new window pane in both the old and new (draft blogger) and takes several minutes and sometimes refreshing the page several times to upload one image. Whereas this wasn't the situation earlier, especially with slow connection people are having some miserable time uploading images on blogger. Here's an estimation of time to upload an image now as per what I'm experiencing, it takes several minutes and several times of refreshing the page to upload one (1) image. I've over 1'400 images posted already and it's all about images since it's a photo blog, just imagine my situation. I need to post anywhere between 20 - 100 images in a day ( depends on the time I'm free and I upload as and when time permits). Just imagine my situation. What am I supposed to do now? It takes so much of time to upload just one picture! I don't know much about the draft or old blogger but I'm have the same problem with both of them. I think it's more related to uploading files and images and blogger is trying to introduce or testing a new system of uploading files and images. Whatever it is it's causing a lot of inconvenience and the way I'm feeling right now I feel many bloggers are getting discouraged by this step of theirs and they would simply switch over to other platforms as they have no option. Moreover, it's been 7 months when the first complain about this was made and there has not been any progress to look into this case means blogger is least interested about this issue. Which also means we fall amongst a countable bunch of people, about whom blogger gives a damn or cares the least or nothing at all. Blogger definitely does not seem to value our reaction, it's not even feeling the worth to respond to such few numbers of reaction. So, now I'm feeling as if we are worth nothing as our complains, feelings and suggestions are not being given any importance. They just don't seem to react and they will never. God bless them for being like this!

Photos, side by side

How do i re-position photo within a post? 

Your Blogs URL:
Browser(s) used: firefox

How do I re-position photo within a post?  I want the photo on the bottom, not the top. It used to be I could click and drag it, or copy and re-paste it, that does not appear to work now.  (On upgraded system?) (Related question, how do I choose to go back to old system?)
Also, I uploaded three pics but only the last one posted.
You can go back to using the old editor at the bottom of the Settings / Basic tab.

People say all sorts of things about being able to drag-and-drop photos.   I've found that sometimes this works, but often it's just easier to go into Edit HTML mode, find the block of code for the image, and cut/paste the code to where I want the image to go.
Thanks, Mary, going into html and cutting and pasting works -- although that is more complicated and less user friendly than it should be! (I'm not a web html expert). The "Updated Editor" claims you can drag the photos -- but you can't! It also claims that you can choose your insertion point -- not true either. It puts them at top of post regardless. When I go back to "Old Editor" and I try to edit it shows all the text in html mode (and this was before I clicked "Edit in HTML"), that doesn't really work for me. ?????? Thanks, John, that doesn't really explain what I want to do, though -- and see above re Old Editor -- I want to be able to place the pics side by side and move them around within the post (specifically this time to the bottom from the top, and then next to one another).


To place 2 photos side by side, select "small" for both; position "left" for one and position "right" for the other. In this case "small" is still too large, due to some padding (invisible). I reduced the width of each photo from 200 to 180. Then it works!

Here are the codes for the photos:

<a href="" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" height="150" src="" /><b>width="180"</b> /&gt;</a>

<a href="" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="150" src="" /><b>width="180"</b> /&gt;</a>

The original values for "small" were width="200"but the photos were still too large to fit in the available space as shown below. You can clearly see that there is an overlap. That was the reason why you could not drag and drop easily. (Blogger needs to increase the size of all its standard templates or specify small as180, not 200)
