How can I put on an image to a story I'm making?

one year ago

I'm planning to put a picture in this story I'm making but why doesn't it stay? Every time I upload it, the image is gone again. At first I thought it was because I didn't set the width and length properly by clicking it but now it's just bugging me and I need help.

What does the code you're using look like?

Can you more clearly describe what you're doing and what you're seeing as a result?

For some reason, you have to reload a picture every single time you save a page. Otherwise, it gets deleted. Sucks right? :p I have a bunch in my game, so I just wait until I'm "done" with a page before I stick the pictures back on and save it one last time.

The above advice of for sticking a picture in your game (it doesn't apply to putting it on your "pictures" page in the first place) :")

It's because you're using the RTE. Turn it off in your profile and just use HTML.

Does that fix my issue as well (game pictures disappearing)? Thanks.

Yeah the RTE is what causes that in the first place whenever a page is edited. Because it's been here twenty years and has learned to hate you all even more than I do.

What is RTE exactly? Also the pictures I use are png ones, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

The rich text editor. You can turn it off in your profile settings, and should because it's buggy and also everyone will silently (and not so silently) judge you for using it.

In practice all it means is that you have to put in bold and italics tags when needed in your writing and do the img src thing for pictures.

<img src="whatevertheURLis.com/blahblah.png" />
