Suggested improvement to Add Image instructions

I am an enthusiastic user of WP but with severely limited technical knowledge. Presumably, precisely the target user.

The instructions window for Add Image is confusing but easily sorted out with a few words of help.

The Add Image icon produces the following window and my objective is to add an image from an existing URL. When I open the window I have no thought of linking to anywhere else so my thought processes are conditioned.


My limited knowldege tells me that a link is a URL So, with a window the top label of which is; 'From URL' I naturally put the URL link into the field labelled with the word URL - otherwise known as the wrong field. I now know this to be the link TO not FROM - should I wish to link TO elsewhere FROM the image..

Following ensues the usual trial and error process trying to work out why it does not work until I sort out that it could be dramatically improved by changing Source to 'Link URL From' and making Link URL consistent as; 'Link URL To'.

Adding an explanation that red asterisks mean mandatory fields would also be helpful and save a lot of wasted time.

Best regards Bruce Bird
