You can not upload images or other files to a comment, but you can link to a data file that has already been uploaded to the Trove. Each uploaded file is assigned a unique numeric code, for example, 688. You can type the unique code in data markup to create a link to that data file within your comment. For example, to create a link to a file with the unique code 688, you would type the following into your comment at the appropriate location:
To find the unique code for a data file:
- Click on the data file to open the file in the browser.
- Record the value shown in the title bar for the new window.
- The unique code for the data file is the number part of the name of the html file. For example, if the title of the window is displayed as
http://yourblog/data/files/27654.html, the unique code for the data file is 27654.
- You would therefore enter the following text in your Post to create a link to that data file:
