Topic tags/keywords: blog images question

I’ve recently started blogging here on Lumberjocks. I have been able to add images to my entries from Photobucket, and recently I was able to add a Video. But when I added the video, the images now just appear as text. The !’s appear, and the full URL for the image is shown, but it’s not actually rendering the image.

The Bold and Italic codes are also not being rendered as Bold or Italic. Instead it shows an asterisk, the heading text and another asterisk. Or an underline, the text, and another underline.

When I removed the video reference, the images, bold and italics all started working again.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Pete, I just fixed your post. Video code was missing closing ‘embed’ HTML tag. When you click on the edit link you can see that I added it at the end of the video code (/embed).

That’s what it seemed like—the video tab wasn’t being closed—I just wasn’t sure how to close it. Thanks for the fix!

Yeah, I agree. I didn’t know if I’d get a response at all to a technical website question, let alone a website 20 minutes later! Impressive!
