Image test

This is a test of the image link capabilities:

Okay, just the basic image tag is added. You would have to know the url of what you are uploading -- there isn't any sort of program that you can use to upload images. That's okay for a basic text-only blog. :shrug:

Argh typing without a working index finger bites. :ohreally:

Image Upload . . . coming in the next version (hopefully in March).

It was by design that it wasn't included originally - the thought was that that would best be left to photobucket/flickr/etc. But it's a pain not to be able to upload your own images.

So, it's tops on the list for the next release.

Thanks for being a tester - much appreciated!

Oh, and 1.32 is now out.

Hey, that's great. I don't post very many photos, but I do like to do so occasionally. I do enjoy the program. One thing I do like is it seems very secure... so far I haven't had any spam on this install. I get spam on my Wordpress blog all the time, though Akismet takes care to move them into my spam filter... but I haven't even had anything show up in my suspected spam area on my Bloo install.

Oh yes -- I did download the latest version; I'll probably be updating this weekend.

Thanks. It's been interesting to read your stream of consciousness on what you like and don't like. Very helpful.

One thing in the design that was shied away from (is "shied" a word?) was the akismet / spam karma method of catching spam AFTER it's already loaded in the database. Bloo uses some relatively simple but fairly bullet-proof (at least so far, on aome reasonably trafficked blogs) that just stops it from ever hitting the db at all. Much cleaner (imho)

I love that. I so much prefer spam to be stopped before I ever have to see it. (Though sometimes I miss truly bizarrely amusing spam, like once this spammer emailed me what was basically a poem.) But I'd rather not see it.
