Support » Plugins » Postie not floating image correctly

  • I’m using Postie 1.4.1 on WP 3.0. When I tested the system to see how it handled images, it did not float the image to the left that. I did nothing special in the email, just inserted the image at the top before the text I typed.

    Here’s my Postie image settings:
    Automatically insert image gallery: no
    Post Images At End: no
    Start Image Count At 0: no
    Image Place Holder Tag: #img%#
    Image template: wordpress default
    Code shown below that:
    <div id="attachment_{ID}" class="wp-caption alignleft" style="width: {MEDIUMWIDTH};"><a rel="attachment wp-att-{ID}" href="{PAGELINK}"><img class="size-medium wp-image-{ID}" title="{TITLE}" alt="{CAPTION}" src="{MEDIUM}" /> </a><p class="wp-caption-text">{CAPTION}</p></div>

    Use custom image field: no

    Based on the WP default, it should float the image left, correct? I’m probably overlooking something basic (done that before).

  • Tried changing “Automatically insert image gallery” to “Yes” to see what happens. Had no visible effect. Also, unlike the first test (where I manually checked Postie), this one I let run automatically. The results were identical.

    Just looked at the post and noticed something. When I went to edit the test post after it was published, I found the following in front of the image code (the image was inserted at the top of the email before the text):

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML ChildAreas="4" xmlns:canvas><HEAD> <META content=text/html;charset=iso-8859-1 http-equiv=Content-Type> <META name=GENERATOR content="MSHTML 8.00.7600.16588"></HEAD> <BODY style="PADDING-LEFT: 10px; PADDING-RIGHT: 10px; PADDING-TOP: 15px" id=MailContainerBody leftMargin=0 topMargin=0 CanvasTabStop="false" name="Compose message area">

    The following was after the text itself:


    The email I sent was from a Windows 7 machine using Windows Live Mail (the new version of Outlook Express/Windows Mail). There was nothing in the email itself except the image and the text.

    I’ve been trying various settings to see if it makes a difference. Just ran another test and manually checked Postie. I got this message about 40 or so times (same exact message) showing right above the emailed test post:

    Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: nothing to repeat at offset 10 in /home/gcgop/public_html/wp-content/plugins/postie/postie-functions.php on line 970

    Looks like I found a solution to the image placement (though not the “Warning” mentioned above): change the prefered email to plain. I had it as HTML.

    I hope this helps someone else later. 🙂
