My left and right aligned images were butting up against my post text and adding gaps and breaks in the text. I followed this advice from a post on this same topic that is now closed.
Use the HTML tab and use something like this:
<img style="float:left;padding-right:25px;border:none" src="where you have the image stored on your server" alt="whatever you want to put here" />
What this does is float your image to the left (float:left;). Then it adds 25px of space (padding-right:25px;)between the right edge of the image and the leading edge of your text. You can increase or decrease the space by changing the 25px to whatever suits you.
Hope this works for you
Now my entire site is completely messed up and i cannot get it to go back. I deleted the padding-right:25px entirely from the literally one line i added it to and my site is just a mess. Any ideas? I was ready to post but if i can't fix it ill have to start from scratch.
