  • I’d like the words to wrap around the pictures but it just doesn’t happen. When I add a picture no matter where I place it the words never wrap around the picture in my posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

    Site url?

    Are you using padding and alignment? Here is the html I use every time I post a picture:

    *img style=”float: left; padding: 5px 5px 0px 0px” src=”” /*

    (replace * with < and >)

    the float direction is where you want it aligned = left, right

    the padding order is top – right – bottom – left.

    So for a left-aligned picture, you would padd the top (if needed) and right, for a right-aligned picture you would pad the top (if needed) and right

    You can see it in action on my site –

    @esmi my blog is

    @onlygators thanks i’ll give that a shot

    I also have another question. On the theme (theme=Larisa) i am using at the moment it has a featured slide show above my recent posts on the frontpage. It says I can just use the post thumbnail to set up the picture for the slideshow. I can see the picture fine when i do that and i like how it shows the thumbnail on the archive list of my post but it also pops up the thumbnail next to my post on my frontpage and if i have a different image it pushes it to the side into my sidebar. Is there a way to remove the thumbnail from the frontpage posts and still keep it showing on the archive list.

    All of the images on your home page have been set to aligncenter.

    With regard to your second question, I think you’d probably need to edit your theme’s index.php file to remove the post thumb feature. That’s assuming that your theme doesn’t allow to turn the post thumb feature on/off on selected page types via the Admin area.

    It seems like I can’t just click the align Left,Center,Right buttons I have to go to the html and change it to alignrigh or alignleft to make it textwrap. Thanks to both of you since onlygators mentioned using that code and you pointed out they were set to aligncenter it gave me the idea to manually switch it out in the html of my post. Glad to have that sorted out it was definitely annoying not being able to do that.
