    Things won't be picked up and fixed unless they're in the Bug Tracker. Having had a look, I don't see it (or it may be obscurely named) so to get this addressed, please post there

    The "float: right" CSS does what the editor is supposed to do!
    Not seeing any image editor over here? Running 4.0.0.. Is this something different in 4.0.1?

    Edit: Google Chrome issue.

    Thanks, this works... not sure why it's so hard for them to fix the radio button to do it!!

    I'm using Firefox. No matter what I choose Left, Center, Right. it ends up left.

    Tonmo, I'm having the same problem. The site seems to "break" temporarily after I save an article. Mine doesn't even output the whole string, usually it ends at !DOC and that's all I get. I also have to go back to the home page to see that everything is fine...

    I'm having issues with it too since going from RC2 to RC4 and then Gold still has the issue... the 2nd nickel (with the '5' on it) should be all the way to the right... it used to work great, in RC2!!!

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml
    When I go back to my homepage and view the article it's all fine, although it doesn't align to the right (it stays left).

    I do allow use of HTML in my articles (since I copied and pasted from pre-existing static HTML article).

    This is the look I'm trying to achieve as I believe Bigwolf is to
    Image to the left, most of the text to the right of it.

    I tried adding a table and putting the pic in one cell and the text in another. This is what shows on the CMS page. It seems to show some of the tags

    just a test to align right

    Even in this post I aligned all images to the right. Not for sure if they will or not. In the preview, they stay in the same location
    There has to be a trick or something I'm missing

    Thanks folks. This is working well.

    I'm not sure the sizing is doing anything, though. I selected "thumbnail" and the image still appeared full size (97x125, not sure if "thumbnail" is supposed to make it smaller than that?). I have ImageMagick installed and turned on Settings / Image Settings.

    Also, any idea how I can change the system to default to the WYSIWYG editor?

    Thank you!!

ID:	3677397 When you insert a photo in this mode, you will see the image, and when you hover over it you will then see the pencil icon. Pushing that will bring up the text wrap functions you are looking for.

    Click the "A" in the upper right hand corner of the editor. Took me and my team forever to figure that one out.

    Is there a preview or something, all I see is a box where I put code in. I don't see any images in the editor

    Insert an image into your new article,either uploaded or from a url.

    Then hover over the inserted image and a 'pencil' icon should appear, click it and you can set the way text flows around the image.

    Hope this helps.

    Best way to use images in CMS articles?

    On this page, there are images happily presented in the upper left hand corner of several articles. Text flows down and wraps underneath them and it looks good.

    How do I replicate this on my own site?

    Sure, I can manually upload an image to my server and use html to get the desired effect, but that's a bit cumbersome to do on every article. I've tried using image attachments, but I can't seem to figure out how to make the text line up properly with the img tag - and the system adds a block under the article showing the attached images, which I don't want. I just want a nice, pretty inline image like what is presented in the vBulletin example pages.

    Any advice would be most appreciated.
