Hey Blood, I can post about other topics not just painting? Like my Cigar Box Guitars that I build?

I just found in the Pre-view the YouTube video shows up. But the video doesn't show up in the Blog post.

To answer both your posts:

1) Anything that's not completely non-art related can be posted to your FM gallery, so YES on the guitars. That and anything else is also good for the blog.

2) Sorry for the trouble - at the moment video embedding isn't available, but hopefully soon! For now you can always post a link to the video. If the video embeds (i.e. you can see the actual video in the editor), just click the Undo arrow (or CTRL+Z or CMD+Z) and it will revert back to a link.

Okay I'll hold off on the videos for now. Because the ones I post for the guitars I show how to make them. Of course a video is better than words. Plus I'd like to keep who ever is viewing it on the site not take them to my YouTube or Archive page. When you do get the video embed can you also allow videos for archive.org? I use that site for video and audio files.

Blood,
I use the embed code and put it on my website. So it displays my FM Gallery. If you click on the Blog and then click on a post it shows an error
"Reach site not found"
with this information below it.

"It looks like the webite you're looking for has either expired, or in some strange logic-destroying glitch in the universe, never existed at all.
The good news is that you can sign up for your own art website here!"

You also need to fix the word "webite"

Thanks for the heads-up on the spelling. Currently the blog is only available on the paid version of Reach, and comes with an extra 5GB of storage for images to be posted into the blog.

The Blog is on my gallery and I don't have a Reach site.

But anyway I was editing a post and the Backspace doesn't work. I was just trying to see how it worked. Plus if this is for paid hosting you need to work on the bug/error that's causing it to show up on non-paid galleries. But then again I seem to be the only one reporting bugs to help you out. Maybe people aren't using the Blog.

Myself I think it's a great feature. I can add info about my guitars and post info about my paintings. Other than posting them in the gallery.

The blog in the gallery here works as expected - I was referring to the free Reach site that you have showing at http://abstractartist.xyz/, which is where you were getting the message, right?

People are using the blog, yes. :)

Where was the backspace not working when you tried it?
