How to Add Images/Video to Comments

16 Feb

ADDING IMAGES OR VIDEO TO A COMMENT

This is how you add a picture within a comment:

Make sure the Format Type under Post a comment reads HTML.

Find the image that you want to insert. Right click on the image to get its web address. This will look similar to:

www.website.com…

Now add the following code:

<img src=”http://www.website.com/images/mypicture.jpg”>

Paste or type the finished code directly into your comment. Note that your image might also be a .gif, for example. Use the preview button to check that it worked. When published, your image/gif will appear inside your comment.

ADDING VIDEO TO YOUR COMMENT

This is how to add Video within a comment:

Make sure the Format Type under Post a comment reads HTML.

Find the video that you want to insert. Upload it to a host such as YouTube. The video will have an embed code. Copy and past the embed code into your comment.

For Example:

<iframe title=”YouTube video player” width=”480″ height=”390″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/xXHVDRgAFMk” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
Try to make sure your images are not large files sizes and make sure your videos also do not distort the comment page. In the case of videos, just make the width=”480” height=”390” smaller numbers and test to see how it looks with the Preview Button. If things look good, publish your comment!
