In the ee control panel I have a textarea(rich text) that I use for writing some news articles. These articles include some images in them and I continually have to write the HTML for inserting images. Is there a way to instead of having to write the HTML myself, adding I.E a button next to the "link" button to insert an image?

I'm new to ee so an easy solution is preferred.

The easiest solution would be to use an addon custom field type that is better suited to your needs. This is the one I use:


It gives you more of a WYSIWYG-style field input, and is much easier to work with for someone looking to avoid code for whatever reason. There is a few others like Wygwam, so I recommend poking around the devot-ee.com site. It's a major hub of ExpressionEngine addons.

Installing addons is generally the same for most addons, but there is no official guide; the addon should come with instructions. But if you have trouble, comment on my answer and I'll write up some instructions.
