Image Border

    Hello. The feature enabling the addition of a border to an image seems to have disappeared (previously found under the “advanced” tab when editing an image on a page or blog). Is this feature now no longer available at all (which would be a disappointment) or is there another way of doing this, please? Thanks in anticipation of your help. Russell

    The blog I need help with is darentvalleyyouthmusic.org.

    Yes, I am looking for this, too! This used to work!!!

    (Getting so sick of services removing features that worked just fine.)

    Actually I want to use it to _remove_ the border around the pictures, but it was at the same place. Now I can’t find ‘advanced’ at all, can you?

    There’s horrifically long thread that may contain an answer for you here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/image-resize-1?replies=443 Apparently a plugin has been developed to restore what we lost but when it will be implemented is unknown at this time https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/image-resize-1/page/15?replies=443#post-1754610

    Yes indeed it does and I have been hard pressed not to publish a rant on this “upgrade” that has created such havoc. ;)

    Well, you just spared _me_ an enormous rant, thank you again. It worked!

    Copying the solution here for others to find.

    Add style=”border:0″ to the image tag in the Text Editor:

    <img style=”border:0″ class=… />

    Thanks for the advice …but the link refers to the use of plug-ins; as a WordPress.com user I cannot cannot install these. Reading the thread referenced by “timethief” suggests that the border function is now no longer available to WordPress.com users …and that’s a shame :(

    Th thread I referenced is about Staff here at WordPress.com installing a plugin into this mulituser blogging platform that will restore all the advanced image editing functions we WordPress.com bloggers had before again.

    In the meanwhile try what manuschwendener posted at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/image-border-8?replies=8#post-1757437

    Thanks for the quick response but despite following the instructions provided by “manuschwendener” (ie in the Text Editor add <img style=”border:0″ class=… />) I still do not have a border. I must be doing something wrong :(

    #1756079

    Yes: you need to write <img style=”border:1” class= … /> to get a border with a width of 1 pixel. Change the 1 to another number if you want the border to be wider. The 0 is to _remove_ the border.

    @manuschwendener and @time thief
    Adding the code “style=”border:1” wasn’t working; then I worked out that by adding “style=”border: 1px solid black” I was able to place a border around the picture. I hope this helps others with the same problem. Thank you both for your prompt and excellent advice. Russell :)
