I would like to try using the blog feature with my site. I need to post some pictures of my work but when I click on the insert photo icon it puts up a screen to prompt me for my pictures. It requires a photo url. My photos that I want to use are stored on my computer and do not have a url. I just want to take them right from my hard drive just like I do when I use my blogger.com blog but I don't see a way to do that. Can anybody help me out with this?

Okay, after hours of fighting this I have to say this is the worst blog I've ever dealt with.  For heavens sake no one should have to hassle this long to get some darn photos on their blog!    I'm trying

Which post are you trying to add the image to?  It is a 3 step process.  Upload the image using file manager.  Publish the image, then add the URL in the blog.

I did all that.  I wanted to add pictures to the May 11 blog, which is still in draft mode as I can't seem to get pictures in it.

Hi mary3106,  I took a look at that post but do not see any image url added. Did you remove it?  If so please add it back and then we can troubleshoot it if it's not working.
