Using Media and IMCE File Manager together on a Drupal 9 site

Insert an image with a link using IMCE File Manager (AKA, the file browser we used with Drupal 7)

For sites that expect to create links on images on a regular basis, an alternate file browser can be added for your site, providing an additional button to Insert from IMCE File Manager. This button inserts an image as a plain <img> tag that won't trigger the empty paragraph bug when a link is added to the image. This configuration is supported as a workaround and will be phased out when the bug is fixed.

Avoid copying and pasting images from clipboard

Copying an image to the clipboard and then pasting it into a page's Body box can cause severe problems for your website. The action of pasting the image from the clipboard inserts it into the code with a very long string of letters and numbers as its URL source, instead of a real URL.

Chrome and Internet Explorer prevent this action, but Firefox allows it.

Adding Images to Your Pages

Images stored on your computer/file share can be added to your pages using the CKEditor toolbar and Drupal's File Browser.
