One of the biggest things clients want to know how to do is make text and images on their pages align correctly. There are 2 methods of aligning items in WordPress:
1. Using the alignment tools in the editor
By using the “Align Left”, “Align Center”, “Align Right”, and “Align Full”, you can make text align to those parameters. However, when using these tools on images, things get more complicated. Using “Align Left” and “Align Right” on images will cause the nearby text to flow around them, and using “Align Center” and “Align Full” will cause the text to completely break before and after the images. This is simply a matter of how HTML behaves, and it is often not how you expect it to. Furthermore, using these tools on images with WordPress’ subtitles can sometimes produce even more unpredictable results.
In the case of “Align Left” and “Align Right”, if the text is not flowing around the image the way you want, you can force the text to start beneath the image by using a “Clear Both” button (top right) at the beginning of the text you wish to start a new line with.
2. Using tables
If you have very picky standards about how your images are aligning — for example you want columns of images on the left and text on the right — then you will have to create a table. I can deliver an FAQ on how to use this if you are interested.
The best bet is to keep things simple. Have clear separations between images and text, or if you do want to float images and text together, then only do one image at a time.
