Help - images in cache listings

Post by Toriaz » 27 April 14 4:57 pm

I've got a new draft cache almost ready to publish, but I want to add an image to the listing. I followed the instructions in the wiki, but it's not working for me. Is there any 'use html' button that I need to check on the page?

I've put images in to listings in the past, and can't remember having any problems, or it being difficult at all.

Any suggestions on what I've forgotten to do?

Your image need to be on the internet.
You can add an image to your cache listing, down the bottom click "Add gallery items for this cache" and add your picture.
Go back to your cache page.
Under the iamge your should see a link to http://geocaching.com.au/blah
Click in the box and copy the URL.
Now for your ache description look for the image icon. Fourth set of boxes along, it looks like two mountains and a moon. Click that.
Paste the URL you just copied from the image.
Click OK.
Your picture should now be in your listing.
