Hello Brian,

I am sorry but I'm not sure what you are asking ?

Do you mean the code required to place an image on your page or something else?

Im still having trouble though. i cant tell exactly what im doing wrong or even if im close to doing it correct. im going to "file management", and then i see the files name on the top of that window, is that what im supposed to type in?

You mean to find the source of it? Well if you already upload it into Yola, you can check the file manager. The codes are usually like this: /resources/your-picture.png

If you put your mouse on an image while in file manager, you should see the code.

This is the code for the image source if the image is in your file manager main directory

<!--
<img src="resources/{image}.{xtn}">
-->

There is additional code to be added for sizing etc which may have to be added as well.
