How to post pictures in comments

It’s really quite simple to post pictures and smileys in comments:

Find the picture you want to post, right click on it and (for Internet Explorer) left click “copy the image url” or (in Firefox) “copy image location”.

Go back to your comment and type the following:

<img src=”url” title=”text” width=380 />

You might find it better to use this code:

<img style=”width:380px;” src=”IMAGE URL HERE” alt=”DESCRIPTIVE TEXT HERE” />

Where the word “url” appears, left click “paste” and paste in the url of the picture.

Where it says “text” you can write a little text or title to the picture if you want, and it will appear as a pop-up balloon when anyone places their mouse on your picture.  If you don’t want any text for your picture, just erase the word “text, leaving the quotation marks.

The width=380 is to give a maximum size for your picture if it is a big picture.  If the picture is only small, like a smiley or emoticon, you can erase that part.

In order to post this smiley,       type this:

<img src=”!&#8221; title=”let’s party” />

If you don’t want the picture to have the text pop-up balloon, remove the words “Let’s party!”, like this:

<img src=”; title=”” />

Give it a try in the comments with your favourite pictures and smileys. Just remember to always insert the open and close tags: < and  /> before and after the coding.

    I’m leaving a comment here so that it shows up in the sidebar. I’ll even leave a smiley:

    By the way, if you type colon, dash and bracket : – ) (without spaces) it turns into a yellow smiley automatically: 🙂

    : – ( becomes 😦
    : – D becomes 😀

      I’m not sure what you’ve been trying to do so I can’t tell you where you went wrong. I can’t see that you wrote anything in your first comment but your 2nd one worked OK.

      I’m sorry Sourabh. I can’t help you with facebook. If they don’t allow html then it’s beyond me. Why don’t you look at facebook’s support or help pages? Good luck!
