Support » Fixing WordPress » Useful Links Page

  • Hi folks,

    I want to add a ‘useful links’ page to my web site and an a little stuck how to do this neatly. Ideally I would like to use a picture/icon on the left with text to the right of it. I have managed to drop in a picture with the “add media” added a hyperlink and set it so that the text aligns to the right.

    The problem I’m having is that the alignment of the text vertically is really clunky and its difficult to get it to line up with the graphic nicely. I also have to play about with each graphic to get it to sit easily.

    Is there an easier way to do this? I haven’t found a specific plugin for this (did try “shortcodes ultimate” which lets you set a button but dropping a picture on to the button looks really bad.

    Any advice really appreciated

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • There are more HTML elements than just images and links. There are lists and paragraphs and definition lists and tables.
    Try not to be too particular about the layout, because it will look different on different size windows.
    There are a bunch of page builder plugins, but the one you might enjoy the most is the Gutenberg editor plugin, which is in Beta testing mode before it gets introduced into core WordPress sometime in August.
    Go to the Plugins directory and scroll down to the Beta plugins.

    I am not seeing much `love’ for this major update yet, @joyously , if they bake this into core, will there be more love?

    So many sites, so little interest!

    Please keep things that work and folks (our clients) are used to!

    Can you please provide some additional detail as to what you consider to be “useful links”?

    I think what you are actually asking about is just about the layout of an image and some text.

    For that a proper understanding of both HTML and CSS will likely be required (and not just drag and drop placement).

    Are you comfortable with both of those?
