Image attribution in text modules

 
Guest

In my latest wizzley, I followed all the directions for using images in the text box. I clicked the image link, uploaded the image, included the URL for attribution, and wrote a few words about one of the images. Most of the images I used are actually public domain, but one was from Flickr. Anyway, I attempted to give attribution for all. 

But it didn't work. When I go to my published page, I can't click through on those images nor does it show attribution when I hover over them. What did I do wrong?

I've actually noticed this same issue on several pages other than just my own.

Help, please!

Hi Bonita,

no need to worry about attributions when using public domain pics. For flickr images I would create a text link, somewhere in the text module. Or, if you want to link out the image itself, click on it in your regular editor window (you'll see a frame with small squares at the corners), and then use the link button from the editor tool bar to create a hyperlink by entering the image URL in the pop-up box. Save.

Another great site for attribute-free public domain pics is Pixabay.com.

Chef, I guess that's where my confusion is coming. I did what you said and used the pop-up box and everything seemed to work fine. But if you click on the image it still isn't linked to the URL from Flickr.

Have you saved (insert) the pop-up?

Which picture is it?

Can you post the URL of the picture in question so I can investigate better?

Yes, I pressed "insert" on the pop-up once I had the image loaded and the URL in its place. 

This is the link to the photo on flickr:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/tallchris/14288135/

I followed their instructions for downloading and also for using the URL just like I've always done on my blog and on Squidoo.

Thanks for taking time to help.

Okay, we've linked out your image and discovered something along the way: the linking process as I've described above does not work in Chrome. You won't be able to click on the pic in the editor and call up the frame. In Firefox, this process works just fine.

However, your credit link at the end of your module is sufficient, anyway. You don't HAVE to link out your picture.

I hope this helps.   Smile
