Can't insert pic or table into CEWP on site page. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a wiki where I have no problem inserting tables, pics, hyperlinks, and even editing the HTML to do all kinds of fun stuff.

    Today I try to insert an image into a CEWP on a site page and every time I paste in the URL and click OK nothing shows up.  Same thing happens with table.

    The best I have been able to with the CEWP on a regular site page is with HTML...I get a little black box with white x where the pic should be, but I do get the mouse over and I can get it to hyperlink when I click on it.

    What is going on here?  I can insert pics and tables into a list or announcements section if the column is using a rich text editor, but not on a regular site page.  I can only use the image web part which sucks because I cant make it hyperlink.

    Is it my version of Internet Explorer?  Did I make some change that broke SharePoint 2007?  Did someone else make a change to the site that screwed this up?  WAS I NEVER ABLE to do this and am just now realizing that CEWP have this limitation?

    I believe for your case, creating picture library will solve your issue. Please refer the below reference URL which explains about recommended practice to use CEWP.

  • By the way, I have tried creating a new site and still same problem.  Can't put a pic into a CEWP.  I have tried looking into the site features that have been activated, and the correct site features are active.

    It's driving me nuts because I have sections with images that I created last week, that I cant add another image to...this seems to be happening everywhere on the team SP site. 

    What the heck!

    Why put the insert table or insert image into the CEWP editor if they can't be used?  Why not at least do the courtesy of grey them out so I do not spend two days thinking I am crazy or need to rebuild my entire SP sites etc...?

    Thank you for your response.

  • Looks like the only thing that I may have done wrong was use an image folder rather than a Picture Library. 

    Thank you for this solution!  If I have an issue I will return, but for now let's assume that it works!

    The HTML is exactly what I use for pictures (except I usually have everything in a table with merged cells so that I do not have to deal with alignment issues). 

    Making a table with no visible border is the best way IMO to make a CEWP section have beautiful text and pictures wrapped just the way you like.


    Thanks again!
    Bill
