Whitespace/ Break/ Entering Down in Post for Beginner

  1. I'm relatively new to wordpress.com and having a terrible time getting my post layout to look nice. Pictures and text are bunching up in odd ways - how do I make it stop!? When I'm editing the post it looks fine but then when I view the post the title slides up under the picture about it and splits into two shorter lines and several of my pictures overlap. Essentially I just want to know how to 'enter down' on my blog and make it stick.

    Blog: twebby.wordpress.com

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

  2. Hello and welcome. We require the complete and clickable URL to the blog which you are referring to starting with http:// when you post to this forum. You can either post it each time you start a thread like this one or you can link your username to your blog. It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog > Users> Your Profile. Scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the (URL) address of your blog and then click ‘Update Profile‘.

  3. http://twebby.wordpress.com is a complete URL ie. a clickable link

  4. To create side by side images
    For best results prepare your images first by optimizing and resizing them prior to uploading them into your blog.

    When you go to insert an image if you want the text to wrap around the image, select either left or right alignment in the editor before inserting the image. If you want the image without text wrap, then select "none" as alignment.

    You can also change images that have already been inserted into posts by editing the post. First click on the image, then click on the edit image icon that appears at the upper left corner of the image, and then you can change the alignment there making sure to click the "update" button.

  5. Thanks for your help timethief. Fixed the username but still a little stumped by the photo/text wonkiness. All good though... on to new posts!

  6. I'm glad to hear all is well with you. The best way to align images side by side or in quad patterns, etc is in HTML tables. Click my username and types "HTML tables" into the searchbox.
