Alpines in June

Well, I guess I'll test out the new site with a couple of pictures of alpines blooming now:

Asperula boissieri and Patrinia sibirica:

How often does one see brown flowers?  Mathiola anchonifolium:

Hi Lori, your images are staying as very small thumbnails, they're not enlarging. I'm working on a list of items that need addressing, or need instructions for best procedures.  I think we should use "Image Attachments" instead of "Embedded Images".

Yes, i realized that and can't figure out how to fix it.  It seems odd that the instructions suggest that one might be able to post photo files up to "35 MB" yet the posted photos are reduced, in the one case, to 55 KB.

Try Image Attachments instead, they seem to work.  I did a test earlier today, but was so busy with work, haven't had time to compile my findings, I have pages and pages of things that either aren't working or because of a number of options, we need to give instructions on the best way to do things.  Will have to wait until Sunday monring as I'm out most the the day Saturday.

Yes, it works if I load the same photos as "Image Attachments" - then it is possible to enlarge the thumbnails.   However, you can't actually see the photos in Preview then, and you can't move them around.  Oh well, I'm sure it will all get worked out.   Anyway, please bear with us...

In your message, the [attachthumb=1] syntax doesn't do anything here, I know because It tried.  I'm sure there is indeed some syntax we can use to add photos exactly where you want, will ask the web developers.  Incidentally, there is a place in the image attachment feature, to add an image title, it will then display the image or plant name, as you "mouse over" the image, I like that feature. I see that you have taken advantage of that feature, nice!  By the way, how unusual the flower color is on the Mathiola, intriquing.

For those who missed it, to get your 'embedded images' to be linked to the larger image displayed in the colorbox overlay, before you click the 'Insert' button, set the 'Style' to 'Colorbox medium' or Colorbox large', if available.

Missed it?  Where did we miss it from?  When I use the Embedded Images option, select an image that's within the pixel constraints, and hit Upload, I get the error message as follows:
 

An AJAX HTTP request terminated abnormally.
Debugging information follows.

The options you describe (Style: colorbox medium,  then Insert) only appears *after* one adds an embed image (but don't click on upload, otherwise one gets the aforementioned error), just hit the Save button, then go back and Edit the post, only upon the Edit operation does one gain access to the (Style: colorbox medium,  then Insert) options.

I want a photo1 embed right here, Epimedium elachyphyllum:

 

 

Here's some more  text,
then my 2nd and 3rd photo embeds below this text, Magnolia sieboldii Korean Form on the left, Iris gracilipes 'Cobblewood Charm' on the right:
Magnolia sieboldii Korean Form  Iris gracilipes 'Cobblewood Charm'
 

The problem is, with the initial post, I can't hit Upload after selected an Embed image, because of the AJAX HTTP error, thus I get no option to add an additional image, can only initially add one embed.  Then would have to go back to EDIT the post, and then add more images.

Right now, I get the same error attempting to an Image Attachment and hit Upload, get the AJAX HTTP error. Again, can only add one attached image when first creating the message, can add additional images after Save, then EDIT the post.  Right now, it's an obscure (with errors) multistep process), to attach images of embedded images. It should be noted, that when using the Edit button, and adding a second or third Embedded Image, then the Upload boes *does* work without the AJAX HTTP error, thus allowing additional images or embeds to be added, not sure it doesn't work to Upload when starting a new message.

1. Noticed too, that the "Alternate text" added to the embedded images *does not" pop up that text when mousing over the embedded image, alternate text does popup when mousing over an Image Attachment.

2. Notice as well, that on Image Attachments, if no value is added to the "Alternate Text", that it automatically adds in its own text, using the first few words of the message, why does it do that.  It's necessary to add at least one blank space in the Alternate Text for Image Attachments, to suppress that odd behavior.  I have left it as the default, so it says "Daniel Dillon wrote" when mousing over the image at the bottom.

Below is Iris gracilipes 'Cobblewood Charm', an Image Attachment
