I noticed that the photos are not positioning where I assigned them (alignment is not following my directions) and that words are not wrapping around them. I realize the photo editing option is no longer on the toolbar, but used the one that shows up once the photo is uploaded. I chose the border sizing on that and alignment. The border worked, but not the alignment or word wrap. Is this just a temporary problem or is the editing somewhere else I don’t see it?
Have you tried the tree icon?
I can’t find it on the toolbar anymore. I am assuming you mean the little square with three in the middle that was located on the toolbar.
Yeah, what happened to the tree icon? I’m having trouble just posting images now (it just hangs up).
Oh, good. not that I wish anyone else problems, but I am glad it’s not just me.
I’m having the same difficulty! What is it with WordPress.com? This was a place of sanctity for me; yet, nowdays just trying to post not a blog, but try and get a photograph up and aligned properly is rubbish.
I wonder if it’s a pay deal..meaning “Upgrade.” Do this rubbish happen with upgrades too?
I know they just did an upgrade. I actually like the direction their changes are going, but I didn’t know if I had missed something. Sometimes right after an upgrade of any sort there is a trial and error fix it time. I am sure it will be fixed by tomorrow. Just a slight inconvenience. I have friends on blogger that are always going crazy with their malfunctions. I find WordPress refreshingly free of most of that.
Damn! I don’t see the tree icon right now either – it was icon 12 (http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/15/what-do-all-the-icons-mean/)
Given all the trouble that folks have been having with uploading, removing this icon (which I used regularly) is unfathomable.
Oh god. Oh, dear god. This better be temporary.
In the meantime, here’s a (really crappy) workaround.
Go to a post on your blog where a picture is formatted the way you want this one to be. Click Edit, click to the HTML editor, copy all the code. Paste that in your new post where you want the image to go(in the HTML editor).
Then upload (assuming you CAN) and copy the URL of the image. Then you can change the URL in the code to your new one and that should work.
cindra: for alignment, maybe use the column buttons. It’s what I’ve always used.
Ah, the ol when all else fails revert to basic html… I’ll try it… tomorrow…hope they fix it soon.
Yea, i want my tree icon back right now….I have like tons of reviews to put up….and this is p***ing me off totally
OK, I just played with the images and now when you click on the image, you’ve got a couple of icons there, one of which functions like the tree icon, only expanded.
Of course, it would have been nice if support had warned us of this change.
Why should this change be any different than any other?
I’m guessing they’re trying to get you to use the “add image” button on the “add media” bar above the regular icons, but this is not an acceptible solution because this bar is not displayed in ful-screen edit mode, and the images I am using are too large to fit into the regular editing window. The new method is more hassle than I care to deal with, but I can live with it as long as they provide some way to use it on the full-screen editing window.
Send your reports to staff on Monday:
No doubt they think it works brilliantly; if it prevents you from posting images, though, you will need to let them know so they can fix it.
I use this and it’s been working fine with me today http://i25.tinypic.com/3486gqt.jpg
I’ve used the same as you pornstarbabylon but unfortunately it is not being positioned in the right place. Quite frankly sick of these changes.
I’ve found a way to get aligning to work. If you go into html mode your pic should look something like this (if it’s alignright):
<img class=”alignright” src=”http://www.yourpic.com” alt=”My pic” width=”206″ height=”300″ />
Now after align right you need to copy and paste this:
Then it actually wraps around the text. Somebody forgot to put this in the html it seems.
It looks like they’ve finally made the Alignment work; if you choose Alignment when you upload the image in the first place, it now works. It didnt’ before, at least not on my setup it didn’t.
And you still have all the options of the tree icon if you hover your cursor over the image (after it’s in the post) and click the little mountain view icon, then click Advanced.
