Why do I have 2 pillowcases?


because you have two copies of the Image URL in there. :(  Here's your code:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/][img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252[/img]]=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/][img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252[/img][/url]And here's the format you've got:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://=TARGET URL][img]IMAGE URL[/img]
]=TARGET URL][img]IMAGE URL[/img]
[/url]

I've broken the format you used into three lines, because if you take out the middle line it's almost perfect! 8)   The only other thing to change is taking out the extra "http://=" you have in the first line (this sometimes causes problems, so best not to have it. ;) ;D).

HTH,

Could it be because I'm using a MAC on Safari and it's splitting the lines?

Hi, Kuby,

I need you to answer my question at the bottom of page 16, so I know where to go from here... :)

Thanks!

You said:

-> I should check if you've tried the directions I put in at 1:56pm pacific time (Post # 557)?   

->If not, could you give that a try?  If so, I'll take a crack at your most recent. 

I will go back to post 557 and try again.

When I followed your directions to the letter, I still had to add end brackets to certain places so it would look like yours... I will now refollow without making it look like your code:

Aren't you sick of this pillowcase yet?

Well, we could try a different picture if you like, but I'm ok w/ this one.  The additions of the Target URL & the Image URL need to be handled differently.  Here's the code you used above:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/[img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252/img][/url]
Take a look at step #2 again.  You'll see that the Target url needs to be added inside the opening url tag. Your code above is missing the closing square bracket in that opening url tag.   

Then look at step #5 again.  The Image URL doesn't go inside the opening img tag.  Instead it goes between the tags, like this  :img: (right where the smilie face is). Your closing img tag is missing it's opening square bracket.

If I add both of those, then your code looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/][img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252[/img][/url]which displays like this:


Again, please? :)

Nope, no strangling here!  The Target URL is properly placed in the code string (if you click that weird little icon, you'll see that it takes you to your blog page! :applause2:)   Here the problem is that you've added a forward slash to the Image url.  Your code looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/][img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252/[/img][/url]
When we take that extra forward slash out:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://kuby2u.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-and-easy-pillow-cases/][img]http://kuby2u.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/stooge.jpg?w=640&h=252[/img][/url]
We get this:



Once more, please (maybe with a different picture/webpage to prove the concept)! :pinkpom:

I see what the problem has been. For some reason Safari deleted certain brackets. Now that I know that, I can add them.

Hi Rhonda!

The problem on your first two photos is a missing forward slash (/) in the closing image tag for the first photo.  Your code looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://images.photos1.walmart.com/232323232%7Ffp432%3C%3A%3Enu%3D3248%3E293%3E495%3EWSNRCG%3D3245%3C%3A585%3A324nu0mrj[img]
[img]http://images.photos1.walmart.com/232323232%7Ffp432%3C5%3Enu%3D3248%3E293%3E495%3EWSNRCG%3D3245%3C%3A5862324nu0mrj[/img]

but because you are missing the forward slash at the beginning of the closing img tag for the first image the software thinks that there is only one image and it isn't getting anything when it looks for that code.  If I add the missing forward slash like so:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://images.photos1.walmart.com/232323232%7Ffp432%3C%3A%3Enu%3D3248%3E293%3E495%3EWSNRCG%3D3245%3C%3A585%3A324nu0mrj[/img]

I get this:

Hi Syndi!

Your format for each of these is exactly right.  (Code between img tags: :img:)  What went wrong is that you put the page url between the tags instead of the image url.  Fortunately, that's easy to fix.  I don't recall if you said you're using a Mac or a PC, so these directions are for a PC (if we need a Mac-specific version, we'll call on Kathryn for help).

Put your cursor on the image itself, the right click which will give you a drop-down menu. 

If you're using IE, you choose "properties" which will pop up a window.  You want to put your cursor on the code titled "address(URL)" and copy the entire thing (Ctrl+A to highlight it, then Ctrl+C to copy it).

If you're using Chrome, choose "Copy Image URL."  I believe Firefox & Safari are similar.

Once you've copied the image's url, paste it between the two img tags (Ctrl+V).  Your code will end with ".jpg" so that will tell you that you got the right code.  So if I go to the page you were using for the first one you posted, copy the image url and paste it between img tags I get this:
Code: [Select]
[img]https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ThR3sK7iOaw/TkZtSdD2FYI/AAAAAAAAABg/_cegfaMufP0/s720/LiningSeamFinish.jpg[/img]which gets me this:


Please give it another try--you're very close! :pinkpom:

Thanks Lisa...
I do have a MAC and a PC...
I was testing this while on my MAC.  I think I did try right clicking on the image (on the Picasa site) and that doesn't do it.  Can you tell me how to do it on a MAC?  I will try the instructions on my PC tomorrow; I use different computers, depending on what I'm working on.  (See, I use computers a lot, but this has me baffled).

Hi Syndi, 

Here's a paragraph from the FAQs that may help:

Quote
How to get the url for a picture if you use a mac (instead of the url for the web page the picture is on):  Put your cursor on the picture whose url you want, and control click. Then choose "Tools," then "Page Info," then "Media." You should find the url you need for your image (ending in ".jpg") there.
 

If this doesn't do it, we will either need to wait for Kathryn, or I'll need to try to search out the info you need.

Give it a try and let me know if this works! :)

 ;D :applause2: :purple: :pinkpom:  Making progress!!
One prob....I can't click on the picture to take me to Picasa ???  Is the sizing done on Picasa?
I can use this computer to post pictures....seems to work.
Now ....about the problem?...

A few other questions:
**Also....how do I create different "Albums" in Picasa?   For instance, if I want a seperate album that shows several pics of a tutorial or one specific project?
**I thought the idea here was not to post pics directly on the forum (?)
**How do I add the Picasa link at the bottom of my posts?
Thanks for your help,
Syndi
BTW...I also had a book that showed trapunto done on a piece of fabric where you wanted a specific part of the design to "stand out " for this method, you would sandwich batting and muslin behind the design, and stitch around only that part of the design, then trim to get the trapunto effect.  :)
