SOLVED: How to add images to a diary entry with Kramdown?

Posted by ABZ_OSM on 10 July 2020 in English (English). Last updated on 16 July 2020.

I understand that this text is interpreted and formatted using the Kramdown markup language, and that to insert an image I need only add

”! [my interesting image] (http://location_of_my_image_x_y_z.org)”

So I put my image on my Google drive and shared it publically and it did not display.

What do I have to do to display images, and is there a space I can upload images to which will display them when I link.

The code ![my interesting image](https://url.goes/to/google/drive) may be correct, but I think Google Drive may disallow hotlinking of image files. Try another image hosting service e.g. Imgur or the upload the said images to OSM Wiki.

To display the image below from Google drive an image

I used ![an image](https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=0Bx2ZEB1j3NXKLUgwckFaRG9XZkE)

It’s a different URL, don’t just copy and paste the link you got from Google Drive. Also, you need to replace the id value after the equal sign with the unique id for your file

If I tag you @GOwin, as @AkuAnakTimur has done above, does that flag up so you will see it?

Tagging usernames (e.g. @username) doesn’t notify any user .

The only reason I get to read this is because I left an earlier comment in the thread, and that automatically subscribes you to it, if there are new comments added since.
