    I am creating a welcome page and have inserted an image. I am trying to wrap the text around the image (top and right and then bottom with the image left justified.

    The blog I need help with is



    See here please >

    The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. 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.

    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).

    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.

    To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the Text (HTML) editor after each image/text pair:
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>


    Thank you



    You’re welcome.


    As I’ve tried to work with your suggestions and reading through the visual editor I noticed that there are two rows of alignment icons in the guide but I only have one row of alignment icons (the top row). Should I have two or does that require an upgrade or?????


    Sorry, I figured it out. Brand new here. Making some rookie mistakes.
