  • Positioning images in blog entries?

    I'm sure this is extremely simple, but I've noticed most blogs have a more sophisticated placement of images with wraparound text, etc. But I can't find any documentation on how to do this.

    Do you just have to use HTML and then copy it into the blog, or is there some layout tool I'm missing?

    Sorry if this is an old question - I did the search but nothing came up.

    I too would like to know this but there does not seem to be any assistance.

      I'm using css classes created through the Additional CSS Definitions under the site style options, and html in the blog post. You'll need to enable html for who ever needs it, unless there's a way add a class to BB code IMG tag. That would be awesome...

      You can add css definitions by editing the Main CSS in your style. This can be done through the admin control panel. I'm doing some simple wrapping for my blog. Here's how to do it:

      1. Add CSS classes to your style:
      float: left;
      margin: 10px 10px 10px 0;
      display: inline;
      float: right;
      margin: 10px 0 10px 10px;
      Add a class to your image tag, or wrap it in a div. If you want your image to appear on the left, use class image-left, and on the right, use class image-right.
      <img src="/source.jpg" class="image-left" />
      You can take a look at my blog. this one shows image-left and image-right

      I've played around with the blog template. I added a login box above the menu, and attempted to transform vbulletin into a website. Knowing a little html and css can go a long way.

      Hope this helps!

        Thanks for the help - that is exactly what I'm trying to do with the blogs. Editing the style would also carry over into threads that use that style also I guess.

        Can you create a style that only applies to Blogs?

          I'm pretty sure you can, I think I've read something somewhere about using custom style on pages. Not sure though...
