Blog techniques

For people who want to post links of photos, here is the solution:

Type in:

"a href="URL of the photo">Link to the photo"


before "a", type in "<"
after "to the photo" type in "/a" within "<  >"

If it does not work, re-typing the quotation marks should help. You are welcome to leave questions in comments, I will answer all questions in this post.
