Need help? Check out our Support site, then


I would like to speak with someone re: problems I'm having downloading pictures.

  1. There is not phone support here. You simply atate exactly what you are having issues with and if we Volunteers cannot provide a solution then we flag the thread for Staff attention.

  2. Have you checked out all the troubleshooting images tips found here?
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/troubleshooting-images/

    Prior to uploading any image into your blog, regardless if it’s a header image, a featured image, an image in a post or page, in a Post format (Gallery or Image), an image for sidebar display in an image widget or a text widget, you can optimize and re-size it in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in. The result will be the best image quality and you won't be wasting your media space.

    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. There's no phone number for support at WP.com. There are private consultants like me who will offer phone support at a price, but really, you're better off just asking your question straight out in the forums. The average response time is less than five minutes.

  4. Thanks, got it going. I think I had to sign out and go back in to edit. Thanks for the reply. Marika

  5. You're welcome.
