blog post changed when it published

  1. I am having trouble with my postings. Once published, their configuration is different from what I wrote. Does adding photos create this problem?

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

  2. The editor is usually a different width than the finished Post so there will be some changes there. Are you using the Preview option to see how the Post will look when published? If you are using a lot of html code, be advised that WordPress.COM strips out some types of code for security reasons.

  3. Are you referring to text wrapping and image alignment?

    Are your referring to copying and pasting?
    Note: Copying and pasting content from rich text editors such as Microsoft Word often causes problems because a lot of extra HTML is used that can interfere with the More tag. Consider using a plain text editor, such as Notepad, instead or use the Paste from Word button. http://en.support.wordpress.com/microsoft-word/

  4. @achristmasshoppe, the code in this post is seriously messed up but I have a suggestion on how to fix it.

    First off, go to settings > writing and select "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically" and then save changes.

    Next, open your post with the problems in the editor. Delete all images from the post. After that, copy out all the text and paste it into a plain text file for safe keeping (notepad or textedit, not MS Word).

    Now delete everything left in the post by switching to the HTML tab, highlighting everything and hitting the delete key. The text area should now be blank with nothing in it.

    Now switch back to the visual taband insert all your images one by one, left aligned. Once you have all the images inserted, switch to the HTML tab, go clear to the bottom of the editor window after all the code. Place the cursor after all the code and then copy all the text out of the plain text file you pasted it into and paste it at the end of all the image code.

    What you should end up with is all the images down the left side with all the text on the right of the images. The paragraphs might not line up exactly as you would like them too, but all the wonky-ness should be gone.
