Image border

  1. Hello, there!
    Now that editing a post is looking slightly different I have no idea how to change the border in my images. With my theme, "unsleepable", all the images that I put in the center show up with a large grey border, and I used to click the image and choose the option "border: none", I don't see how I can do that with the new layout. If someone could help me, I'd love you forever, thank you. :)

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

  2. I'm experiencing the same thing. Images are being added with a default thick border that eats some of the image edges and there is no way to remove them. Also, there is no re-size options like before (90%-80%-70%-60%-50%). It's now a default full size or low resolution thumbnail size.

    Please help!!!

  3. I can't see any way to add a border to my images now. What am I overlooking?

  4. me too.. wanting to get rid of borders on images...
    used to be able to do.. can't seem to find out how (or if you can) with updated version..

    thanks guys..

  5. I've been doing this guys, in HTML <img class="aligncenter" style="border: none;" ...
    But I miss doing it when editing my image :s

  6. You can remove or add the border by inserting border=0px in the HTML as shown here:

    < img class="alignleft size-large wp-image-15039" src="URL" alt="Featured Image -- 15038" width="584" height="389" border="0px" />

    Just adjust the number 0 to how thick you want the border to be. To be clear, you will need to adjust the image code in the Text Editor. This is explained here:

  7. thank you..

  8. You're welcome!

  9. This isn't working for me. The border command is being ignored in this code:

    <img class="alignright wp-image-406" src="http://davidrendalltenor.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/persiancarpet-e1397599960642.png" alt="PersianCarpet" width="237" height="308" border="0px" />

  10. @ssilverm can you please link me to the post or page where you are using that image, and let me know what you're trying to accomplish? Are you trying to hide the border or increase it?

  11. Jackie, I'm trying to hide the border. Is there a way I can link you to the page without publicly publishing it? It's a blog I maintain for someone else; he's not yet ready for this particular post to go public.

  12. If you can give me a pointer, I can look at a draft post.

  13. @ssilverm with the Twenty Eleven theme, the only way I can find to remove the border would be to make the following changes in your site's CSS, which would require the Custom Design upgrade:

    img[class*="align"], img[class*="wp-image-"], #content .gallery .gallery-icon img { border: none; }

    The advantage to doing this is that it would remove the border for all images, if that's what you'd like to do. If you're not interested in the upgrade or in making global changes, you might try reposting your question in the CSS Customization forum to see if someone there has a different work-around.

  14. @ssilverm I sure would be interested to know if you get an answer about any workaround. I am frustrated that this option to edit images has been taken away from me and that the only solution seems to be a global change.

  15. @farmerbsm I would dearly have loved to be a fly on the wall at the meetings where 'improvements' such as this were the outcome. An explanation of the rationale would be nice.

  16. Please note that this is a theme issue, as not all changes to design elements can be made in the body of an individual post. Depending on the theme, some changes will require changes to the CSS.

    Based on feedback, our developers continue to look at ways of further improving the image editor, so it's very possible that what I've posted is just a temporary solution, and there may very well be other ways to make it work with inline CSS.

  17. @ssilverm - not sure if this will work.. but what is working for me (to get rid of the border) is inserting this:
    style="border: 0;"
    right before the:
    src=

  18. @monk51295, thanks for the tip; unfortunately it has no effect for me.

    @jackiedana, it may have become a theme issue, but it used to work and now it doesn't. The ability to adjust margins and padding has similarly been removed. Although this is an inconvenient – rather than catastrophic – change, it indicates either a casual disregard for Wordress.com users or a failure to think things through properly (unless this is part of a plan to 'encourage' the purchase of the Custom CSS upgrade).

    The sudden and random removal of useful functionality introduces an uncertainty that is of real concern. I manage blogs for a number of individuals. In the face of this unpredictability, it is hard for me to advise them to continue using WordPress as their platform of choice.
