== Uploading files manually ==
To upload images or other attached media / files, you will need to upload the content to our ibiblio host site manually.
Add to your img src or a href's as desired. You can use this not just for images, but for extended code attachments, etc.
== Uploading media via WordPress ==
Before uploading files to WordPress, you will need to change permissions on the directory where you are putting the files.
# Login to Ask jrochkind for the password for the c4ljeditor account (or see this [ post] on c4lj-articles).
# Change the directory to /public/vhost/c/c4lj/html/wp-content/uploads/
# WordPress tries to write the files to /public/vhost/c/c4lj/html/wp-content/uploads/[current year]/[current month]. If the current year or month directory does not yet exist, create them, "mkdir [current year]" or mkdir "[current month]" in the appropriate directory. Creating the directory while logged in makes the owner and group of the directory c4ljeditor and c4lj respectively. Wordpress will create the directories as nobody/nobody.
# Change the permissions on the [current month] directory from 755 to 777, "chmod 777 [current month]".
# In the WordPress editor, click the "Add an Image" button.
# Browse to and select your image/file.
# Click the Upload button.
# File in the Alternate text and Caption fields.
# Select the size of the image you want to display in the article.
# Click "Insert into Post".
# On the server, change the permissions on the current month's directory back to 775, "chmod 775 [current month]"
