The classic - can't get text to wrap around image (8 posts)

    Hi guys,

    Here's the page in question:


    I've search previous threads on this matter but no matter what I try, the text does not wrap around the .png image of the three cars.

    When I raise the image up, the text jumps to beneath it, and vice-versa.

    I've got the text aligned left, and the image aligned right. I've tried the reverse of this, but it still won't wrap.

    Can someone give me some pointers please. I'd like the first two, perhaps three paragraphs wrapped.

    Many thanks

    Remove overflow: hidden; from:

    .entry-content p {
        line-height: 1.5em;
        margin: 0;
        overflow: hidden;
        padding: 8px 0;
        width: 100%;

    in style.css

    Hey esmi, does this apply to me as well?


    Since I uploaded this custom theme I cannot get the images to wrap anywhere.

    your theme seems to be missing some styles for image alignment:

    Thread starter here!

    Once again, many thanks for the help regarding getting text to wrap around images.

    However, the solution given above doesn't seem to have solved the issue in IE (using IE8 & 9). I've tried playing around with the overflow:hidden function in my css, but with no success.

    For example here:

    Can any css god assist me please?
