    So I tried to put a photo in an article, and tried to set it to the right. It works fine when I’m in the edit box, but it moves to the top of my post when I update (ie on the general view).

    I assume that this is because there is not enough space for the picture to fit in on the right. Is there any way that I can get the picture to squash the words to the left so that the pic fits? (kind of like tight on Microsoft Word).
    If not, is there any other way for me to fit the picture in? Cheers.

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

    The theme on the blog linked to your username is Freshy and the maximum displayed image width is listed here by theme.

    This is the sourcecode for your picture:
    <a href="http://commons.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg"><img class="zemanta-img-inserted zemanta-img-configured " title="English: Shakib Al Hasan warming up prior to t..." src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/32/Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg/300px-Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg" alt="English: Shakib Al Hasan warming up prior to t..." width="75" height="97" /></a>
    You can change it to this in the html editor to this which will be larger and aligned right so your text will wrap around it on the left:
    <a href="http://commons.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg"><img class="zemanta-img-inserted zemanta-img-configured alignright" title="English: Shakib Al Hasan warming up prior to t..." src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/32/Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg/300px-Shakib_al_hasan_3.jpg" alt="English: Shakib Al Hasan warming up prior to t..." width="300" /></a>

    Thanks, but it didn’t quite work out. The picture doesn’t wrap (although it is aligned to the right), it just allows the writing to go over it :)

    Weird, I deleted the pic and re-inserted it. It works fine now. I must have messed something up earlier, apologies and thanks for the help guys!
