    I can’t figure out where this is in my editor? Is this a plugin?

    • Denise says:

      If you are referring to the FORM edit — if you are using
      – WordPress.com (the free version of wordpress) — the icon is the last icon on the right side – on the same row with the insert image
      – if you are using WordPress.ORG – yes it is a plugin.

      In the blog posting I have a screenshot of the icon and instructions
      What is the link to your blog?

        WordPress is open source, witch means, all versions of wp is free.
        If you’ve paid for it, you’ve been scammed…

      • Denise says:

        Hello Casper – thanks for your comment. No – I didnt pay for WordPress – but I am not paying for HOSTING and it comes with a free installation of WordPress. Thanks for the warning though.

        I decided on hosting at BlueHost
