    Moodle Picture on Front Page

    I may be being excessively thick here but I just can't add an image to the middle column on the front page.

    I load up the html editor and click the picture icon, and the settings box appears but if I try to click the browse button, I get nothing.
    I've also uploaded the image to System/Front Page/ Course files but I don't know how to code that into html. any ideas?

    can you..

    upload images anywhere else in your Moodle? Just to check it's not a slash arguments issue or something. Have you tried in different browsers? Well FF as well as IE; (Opera and chrome won't work) I am presuming you have your front page settings set to show topic section and that is where you are trying to upload the image to?

    Middle column

    When you say middle column do you mean the topic section between any left and right side blocks you're using? Which theme is it? I can't see how you'd need to do any coding/touch the files on the server unless you were after editing the theme itself? You should be able just to link to the image you'd uploaded to sitefiles. Go to the image in sitefiles,right click its properties and then copy and paste that into the image url box when you click the image in html editor.That way you don't need to have browsed and located it.

    I'm using the cornflower theme, just developing a test site to see if it will look and do what we're thinking of.

    going to site files, opening the picture and copying the url was what i needed to do. .

    http://localhost:8888/moodle20/file.php/1/filename.jpg

    anyone else who might get stuck, this is what the url should vaguely resemble...
