[resolved] Newbie problem precisely locating pictures in posts (3 posts)

    Version 2.9.2 on GoDaddy host, started this week, this is the first problem, shown on post WoodLoon.com/Blog.
    -------
    The post in the link above illustrates the problems I am having. In experimenting while I created the post I answered a lot of my own questions. It's a long post. You probably don't need to look at it to understand these questions.

    QUESTION 1 - Is generating a new paragraph before and after "Add an Image" a function of the theme or WordPress?

    QUESTION 2: How could I accidentally cause each new paragraph to be "Path: p>> strong" and how do I stop it?

    QUESTION 3: How can I get the text to jump down to the area below that bottom of the previous image?

    Question 4: How can I determine the width of the posting area for a particular theme?

    QUESTION 5: Does FLOW only work around images that have Align = Left or Align = Right?

    QUESTION 6: Is there a way to get two pictures to align next to each other on one line (in one paragraph?)?

    QUESTION 7: There was a good Codex article on "Using Images" that discussed having optional special classes for images like:
    img.nature {
    margin: 20px;
    padding: 20px;
    border:solid #003300 4px;
    background: #006600;
    }
    Is there someplace I could insert these into one of the CSS files other than the theme files? And would I need to go into the HTML view of the Text Entry box to apply the class to a specific image?
    ------
    Sorry I'm so wordy. Thanks.

    1. The spacing above, below and around an image is dictated by the theme.

    2. Either you're manually adding that text or you have a bad plugin or theme.

    3. Edit your theme's stylesheet and or add inline style (eg <br style="clear:left;) as appropriate.

    4. By examining your theme's stylesheet.

    5. Depends upon the theme.

    6. Use Alignment:None - although, again, this is theme dependant.

    7. a) Add them to your theme's stylesheet (eg style.css)
    b) Yes

    I added a few notes that may help someone reading this thread. Thank you for your answers, esmi. I am marking this "solved".

    Q1 & Q2: solved. The strong paragraphs were caused by the way I emphasized some text.
    Question 3: How can I get the text to jump down to the area below that bottom of the previous image?
    I went into HTML view and entered:
    ----------------
    <br style="clear:right">
    ----------------
    The first horizontal was in line with the preceding text and the second horizontal line was immediately below the picture on the right.
    Q4 & Q5: Solved. "content" had a width of 645px.
    Q6: Is there a way to get two pictures to align next to each other on one line (in one paragraph?)?
    I haven't really figured out where I would find this is the Theme files, but I will play with this on my own.
    Q7: I figured this was the answer. I haven't tried it yet but I consider this Q solved.
