Aligning pics with txt boxes

    I am VERY new to blogging and cannot figure out how to align pics once given a caption underneath. When there is no caption the pics align withough issue; put the caption in and I cannot set any pics side by side on my page. Please help.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is movesofgod.wordpress.com.

  2. The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#alignment They are used to achieve wrapping text around images on either the right or left hand side, or to display an image that's centered without text on either side of it. If the text beside the images does not occupy the same amount of space that the image beside it does then the text wrapping will continue and the images and text that follow will have a staggered appearance.

    Align-left means position left, with the rest of the content wrapping around the right side of the image.
    Align-right means position right, with the rest of the content wrapping around the left side of the image.
    Align-center means position center, with no wrap-around (= the rest of the content below the image).

    Every theme has a maximum displayed image width http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/maximum-image-width/ so it's important to keep that in mind when posting multiple images side-by-side. If you want two images to be side by side on the same line start by setting the alignment of both images to left. To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the HTML editor after each image/text pair:
    <br style="clear:both;" />

  3. Welcome!

    If you're still having any trouble, could you point us to a specific example you're working on showing some images with captions getting misaligned?

  4. I'm going to close this topic since there hadn't been any activity from you guys for 22 days. If you need further help, please reply back with a link pointing to an example of the problem and mark this topic as "not resolved."

    Cheers.
