  • Hi,
    A very simple question but can’t find the solution after googling for a while.
    If I want to insert a basic shape, for example: rectangle in my wordpress page, how do I do that?
    (I can easily do this in Microsoft Word by simple insert the basic shape?)
    Thanks
    Bill

  • Place your cursor where you want the image of the basic shape to appear and click the Add Media button. Then navigate through the uploader screen to insert the image.

    Here is more detail.

    You can’t insert a shape in WordPress like you do in Microsoft Word (or any other Document processor). The reason is WordPress’s editor does not support drawing tools.

    An option could be to insert images that contain the shape that you want to use.
    For example, an image containing the rectangle shape.
    See Benachi’s (@utz119) replay above on how to do that.

    Of if you are comfortable with html5, then you can use canvas tag to draw basic shapes, but that is a complicated way, and you need to have strong programming skills to do that.
