Why won’t my Flickr link work in the WYSIWYG editor?


When you insert in image into the editor using the “insert an image” icon, you will need to use a direct link to an image file. Flickr allows you to share you photos by “grabbing a link”. This link is simply a link to the image on a Flickr page…not to the image itself.

How can I edit my print directory listing?


Your print directory listing is managed on the “edit your profile” page. Be sure to keep this information up to date as this is the text that will be used for the printed piece.

How do I edit my profile text?


Your profile text is your chance to express yourself freely. There are no limits on the number of words you can use for this field.

The profile text utilized a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor which allows you to create links, make text bold, italics or underline and add lists or headlines.

Starting from left to right, the editor allows you to (in most cases you must highlight the text first, then click the button):

  • Bold
  • Italics
  • Underline
  • Strikeout
  • Right align
  • Center
  • Left align
  • Bulleted list
  • Numbered list
  • Undo
  • Redo
  • Create a hyperlink
  • Break (or remove) the hyperlink
  • Insert an image
  • Edit the html

Clicking and dragging the bottom right corner of the box will allow you to make the editor longer.
