To upload a picture in a comment:
1). Find the picture you want.
2). Right click on the picture and click "Copy Image URL" or some button that sounds like it (it varies from webrowser to web browser)
3). Type in this code in your comment box < img src="PASTE URL CODE HERE" >
*** don't put spaces between the < and i and no space between " and >

Jessica | 73 comments I finally found the Goodreads Formatting Tips. I remember seeing it somewhere but didn't remember where it was. Its a lot of writing to format the stuff the way you want it.

• image: img src= "http://www.goodreads.com/image..." width="40" height="100" alt="description"/> (Width must be 0-400, Height must be 0-1000, alt is a description of the image. All three are optional, but recommended.)

Aw thanks Jessica!!


message 13: by Renee (new)

Renee How do you post pictures into your status??? For reading update or general status?
I've been on goodreads 2 years and still haven't figured it out. :/
Is there like, a way to get to your status posting page instead of just the sidebar?


message 14: by Erin (new)

Erin I'm not quite sure what you mean, but at the top where the My books, Groups and Recommendations buttons are, if you click on your profile picture it brings you to your status page. Not sure if that helped? :/

Under each comment there is a reply button. Click on it and it will appear in your comment box below, then type in your response and post it.

Yeah it doesn't show up on my tablet either, hopefully the app get some improvements.


#notmyrealname#iluvjesus | 78 comments Do you have to be a mod to make new topics or threads whatever you want to call it ?


message 18: by Stéphanie (new)

Stéphanie (stepinator) that depends on the group. some groups allow their members to make new topics and some don't

#notmyrealname#iluvjesus | 78 comments K thanks I'd be real embarrassed if I did and I wasn't supposed to *awkward silence* (=
