    Is there a way to use a hidden table to fix the image and text?

    I don’t want a visible table.

    Tables shouldn’t be used for layout purposes. You need to look at using CSS to control your page layout.

    As far as I am concerned, the person isn’t talking about the layout, but the input of a message.

    Also if you explain how to do it, then atleast give an example of an code to use. This kind of “advice” is rather pointless to me.

    If you set the tables border to “0” you won’t see it. I believe this is standard when adding a table in WordPress.

    If not, set your cursor inside the table, click the “table” icon in your text editor inside WordPress (when you are editing the message), and set the border to 0.

    You can also add this code to the <table> tag:



    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="400" height="500">

    Sounds like a layout issue to me. And if I could see the page in question, I would give precise instructions but, unfortunately, my psychic browser is on the other machine.

    Thanks. Here is an example of the problem page:

    You will see the text to the right of the photos are spaced differently and the space between people going down is also varied.


    Managed to get clean and uniform spacing here, but only with text below but client wants text to right of photos.

    You need to start by validating your pages. The existing errors could create varying display problems in different browsers.

    Secondly, place your images outside the paragraph tags rather than inside them.

    Thanks for the replay but sorry, should have explained.

    We used WP has the CMS because the client wants to be able to amend the site themselves. Therefore they want to use a WYSIWYG editor type thing, hence they created the page via the WP ‘visual’ editor.

    Is there a way for them or a layman to be able to acheive the desired results through the visual editor or other means?

    They could proably cope with suggesting a table or similar but if I say we have to use coding/html then we fail in our objective.
