Wrapping Text Around A Photo

One of the neatest ways to combine photos (images, pictures) and text is to display a photo in the middle of the text.

It takes very little work to make text "flow" around a photo, or to wrap the text around the photo.

Working in HTML mode, it's easy to see the settings in the code, to make text flow around a photo.

Here's a section of my earlier post, Possible Resolution For The bX-w7tr63 Error, which contains wrappable text.

See how the text "flows" around the photo? That's such a simple task.

Here's the section, in more detail. See how the text floats, to the right of the photo? See how the following paragraph breaks?

All that you need, for text to flow from the right and under the photo, is for the photo to float to the left.

That's a selection in "Choose a layout", when you use "Insert image".

After the photo has been uploaded, just choose "Left", for "Image alignment".

I use "Medium" for "Image size", to make the photo readable, and leave room for the text - as you can see here.

And here, we have the code section, with the photo uploaded, and inserted properly.

Blogger Engineering is testing some fixes, in Draft Blogger, that may resolve some of the more common causes of this ubiquitous error code. <br /><br /> <a href="" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 0em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="" /></a><br />This is one of the most persistent error codes, being reported in the forums.*<br /><br /> If you are affected by a w7tr63 problem, you may first try temporarily using <a href="" target="_blank">the Draft Blogger dashboard</a>.<br /><br />If you only use "" temporarily, you can return to a normal state, by using "", any time you wish. <br /><br clear=left /> If you try Draft Blogger, and decide that it is helping you, you can <a href="">select "Make Draft Blogger my default"</a>, and your normal login will redirect to Draft Blogger. In that case, you can <a href="">de select "Make Draft Blogger my default"</a>, to return to normal Blogger, if you ever need.
There are two key code phrases, seen above.
float: left;
is part of the photo link.
<br clear=left />
follows the text that you wish to display at the upper right of the photo.

Then, just follow
<br clear=left />
with the rest of the post.

Where is that "insert image wizard"?

Hi Gina,

Thanks for the question. The "Insert image" wizard is a series of popup windows, that you get when you hit the "Insert image" button in the toolbar. The window that you need is labeled "Choose a layout".

See if my slight rewording of the text makes it any clearer.

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
