I'm trying to add an image to a page, and having some issues getting the alignment and text to line up correctly.

When I click the button to add an image, I'm also setting the alignment to 'right' - and it would appear on the preview/admin page that it is exactly right.



However, when I save the page it is losing that formatting...



What am I doing wrong - or is there a tutorial that I can view that covers this specifically?

Thanks as always, I'm a perpetual rookie.

ma-by there is something wrong with the interpreter. I don't use the editor so can't not check this at now.
try to disable this en use the comcode editor, will give you some options to set the image left or right.

Ensure the "Convert XHTML to Comcode" option is off.

Hey Chris,
That did it - thanks!

Is "Convert XHTML to Comcode" just one of those handy-dandy features of ocP - or will leaving this setting 'off' (unchecked) cause potential layout or search engine issues in the future?

We changed the default to off a few versions aback for this kind of reason. Past thinking was that WYSIWYG should lead to really tidy Comcode, current thinking is that people want use of full HTML in the editor and thus we shouldn't lose formatting via the conversion.

Thanks for the assistance, guys.

I'm a never-ending work in progress on this end, and a continuous lesson in patience on your side!

Have a great evening.:thumbs:
