Picture-copying test

Here's a photo from John, The Baltimore Snacker:
If you create a post and upload a single photo, you can click on "edit html" and see what that total chunk of picture code looks like.

The code for this photo looks like this:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e){}" href=""><img style="margin: 10px auto; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer;" src="" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5231504274167628706" border="0" /></a>

It's possible to use a photo from another Blogger site by simply copying the photo HTML from that post's source code.

Just find the jpeg you're looking for in the code and copy everything around it from <a onblur= ... to ... </a> and paste it into your post.

If you know how to mess with HTML, you can also change the size and switch the float from center to left or right. You can also alter the runaround. Click here.

This is only a test

I'm testing the possibility of having a short intro that can expand into a longer post.

With this trick, you can choose to display an arbitrary amount of text from the beginning of each post, as a teaser for the whole thing. Then users who want to read the rest of the post can click a link to see the full text. This is handy if you have lots of long articles all on one page.

Just click your "Back" button to collapse the longer post.
