    Mary, could you add links to the other macro posts here? Let me know.

    Where do you want me to add the link? The link that I gave you takes you to my page and if you just keep going down the page all the pictures will be seen.

      Today it does but in the future it won’t. If you add the links here, people will be able to find them a month or more from now.

        I can’t seem to figure out how to do that.

    In the Post editor you should be able to right some text, highlight it and click on the Link button (looks like a sideways number 8). There is where you put the link in. Hope this helps!

    I had to put them in the body of the post. I couldn’t get them to show up in the links.
