  • Place the cursor where you want the image and click the add media button.

    I am using Gutenberg, the block editor and it does not have the traditional editor buttons such as add media… Your screen print reflects the classic editor.

    Hi Tim,

    If you have issue on Gutenberg just try the classic editor

    Hi Rajan,

    I like the Gutenberg editor and prefer not to convert the page to classic. I would appreciate guidance on how to add an inline image using the block editor.

    Hi Tim,

    I think they decided not to add that function it was discussed from what I’ve seen.

    What you can do is for that paragraph use a “Classic Block” instead of a “Paragraph Block” put the cursor where you want the image and click the Add Media icon.

    Hi Pete,

    Thank you for the insight. Perhaps some will develop a custom block to enable that functionality. In the meantime I will follow your advice.



    Hi Tim!

    There is a new feature in Gutenberg I found today by accident: Inline Image. It is located under Inline Elements. I’ve been waiting for this feature since I started to use WP5 during Christmas time. I have no idea how long it’s been standing there. I converted Classic page to Gutenberg and bang! One of the pictures were inlined.

    P.S. If somebody has found a way (or walk around) to keep <a name=""></a> code in Gutenberg I’d like to know.

    Where do we find those inline “inline elements”? It would be useful to not have to type raw HTML when we want to do simple things like adding small inline images amongst our text in a paragraph or a list.


    to find the aforementioned inline image element, click the + icon to add a new block element. Then enter “inline” in the “Search for a block” field and you will be presented with the “Inline Elements” section (that currently only contains Inline Image).

    Hope this helps!

    Inline does not exist in my Gutenberg anymore. In order to inline an image in Gutenberg and wrap text around it all I had to do was after pressing ‘+’ under ‘formatting’ there is ‘classic’. It is a built in classic bar just for the block you are working on.
