this is only a test

I was just wondering, if you add a picture to a post, and then you delete it from your media files, does it disappear from your post? I feel like I have all these photos, and I’d rather just see the ones I’m using at the moment. Can I delete them when I’m finished with them?

So OK, here are two photos. The first one is a bunch of baby spiders I found on a post on the back patio. I will leave this one alone. (aren’t you glad that if any of these photos survive, it will be the one with spiders!)


This one is a photo of a beautiful variegated plant in the woods just behind our house (it is now in our yard!)  I will delete this one after I publish this post.


The last one is a photo we took at the marina in Pedregal. I will put it in the post, save the draft of the post, and then delete the photo.


which ones will survive on the live blog??!  We shall see….

UPDATE: well that answered that. You cannot delete photos from the media files or you won’t see them in your blog.  This is very strange because as I am editing/updating this post, I can see the photos here but when I look at the post on line, there are only empty boxes.

    Once you delete them from the media file, they are gone… Guess what, if you upload a gallery and delete some photos from the gallery, they will still show up on your blog until you delete them in the media file. Oy vey! 🙂

    Ahh really. That doesn’t make sense so I’m glad to know this. It’s possible I’d want to change a gallery and I’d be putting my hair out. Thanks!

    I found out about deleting photos and that little question mark box on posts too! Though on a few occasions the little question mark turned up and I had to delete cookies and other add Ons from my Internet browser! Well there were rather a lot…but no longer! Hope this makes sense….I know what I mean! 😉

      I wonder if that’s something associated with your browser? I’m using Chrome and I don’t see it, but I’ll keep my eye open for it. Thanks for the heads up
