Wrapping Text Problem (27 posts)

    Yes, I read all threads about this already but I have a problem that hasn't been covered yet. Perhaps someone has the answered...

    I am using class="alignright" for my images as defined in the .css

    The text wraps correctly around the images but the problem is that image itself disappears. The empty space is the size of the thumb and it is still clickable but the image is not shown. I have tried resizing the image smaller and text wraps again correctly but the thumb would not show up...

    What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    1. It would help to have a link to the example page so we could check your codes.

    2. Are you viewing this in Firefox or MSIE? It might make a difference.

    3. If the link is "clickable" in the blank area, then the link is right but the address for the image might be wrong. Check the image location to make sure you have spelled it all right and have it totally right. To make sure, add your URL (site address) to the front of it like this:

    <img src="http://example.com/images/picture.jpg" class="alignright" alt="picture of something" />

    And see if that makes a difference.

    Yes, the image path is correct. I have written the full path and if I drop that url on a browser I could see the image fine.

    I have also shut down my firewall but to no avail. The thumb will not show up. I can't drop the link here because I handle adult content. I could privately though.

    I am at a complete loss...
    Will appreciate some help.

    heh having adult content hasn't prevented people from posting their link here in the forums before

    This is still a mystery to me. I would appreciate some help...

    There is NO eason why the thumb is not showing. I have tried eliminating using the alignright class and sure enough the thumb shows up, but text gets underneath. If I can' t find a solution I can always use it this way, but this severely limits the flexibility of WordPress.

    I am surprised that such a simple problem can't be fixed rapidly.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    img.alignright {
    padding: 4px;
    margin: 0 0 2px 7px;
    display: inline;
    }

    .alignright {
    float: right;
    }

    do you have both those for your alignright?

    Well, my bad. Actually, yes, I have both.

    This is what I have on the .css file:

    img.centered {
    display: block;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    }

    img.alignright {
    padding: 4px;
    margin: 0 0 2px 7px;
    display: inline;
    }

    img.alignleft {
    padding: 4px;
    margin: 0 7px 2px 0;
    display: inline;
    }

    .alignright {
    float: right;
    }

    .alignleft {
    float: left
    }

    And this is how I am linking to the image:

    <img class="alignleft" src="http://www.bustypornmovies.com/wordpress/wp-content/strip01_02.jpg" alt="words" / border=0 /><br>Text goes here.............

    This should be working, no?

    I was hoping that you guys have some working examples that I could look at.

    The Codex is a bit rusty at the moment, give it time and the url will work.

    Ah, I knew there was a Podz page... I couldn't find it but stumbled across other interesting things instead. :)

    When the Codex is down, which it is right now undergoing an upgrade, you can find the same article using Google. Type in the address or title of the article and when it comes up on the search, click cached to see the page saved on Google. It's a nice feature, no matter what you are trying to find.

    podz's page rocks - now if the codex was like that it might be more interesting

    I'll move that page into codex then :)

    Actually ..... is there a place for that ? Or should I make it a User: page ?

    or you could move the codex in tamba, then you can let loose some of what you did in the "xplosion in a crayon factory" ;)

    I was thinking the other day of repainting that part ..... my method was to tie lots of colour codes around a vitual grenade, then lob it in. Like I did last time :)
