Blogger handles graphics, media better than Wordpress

One of the problems with Wordpress is that you have limited capacity to embed media and graphics. YouTube and Vimeo work. Storify seems to work sometimes.

Love this app but wish it worked on Wordpress. This goes for all the great Knight lab apps -- timeline and Story map. The way to get around it is the screen shot and link. But, that doesn quite work for that.

It can also be a little easy to embed your Piktochart. Here's where a little HTML comes in handy. You can set a custom width in the Piktochart code. I set mine too wide at 1,000.

Here's what the code looks like. I'm going to change 1000 back to 600

There are probably a couple of different ways to embed an Excel chart. Here's I saved it as a JPG and put it in. This will work fine on Wordpress, What's the problem with this chart? Goes in the wrong direction. Let's fix it in Excel.

I did this by going back into Excel and  sorting the dta column from lowest to higehc
