using images inline with basic pages

Just starting to use and understand the ocportal method and have run into some issues with images used in page content, I need help to understand the differences between this software and every other cms I have ever used.

The issue: I want to include images, inline, with the content of some pages.
The result: I can not get them to display correctly. (align: left; with text beside it in the size I adjust it to)

What I have tried:
Read the tutorials. (Understand most of it, learning the rest)
Uploaded all the images to the "images" folder. (always displays the image in whatever size it is, not in the re-adjusted size, I put in the editor)
Insert as an attachment. (I don't want or need a hyper link or download of the image)
Searched the forums for topics related to inline images. (Only find reference to galleries, not what I need)


So, to help me understand how ocportal works with images:
Historically, I have used an WYSWYG editor to insert and image into the body of the page. Adjusted the image to the size I want, and then set the attributes of the images to display where I wanted it. Even ability to create hyperlinks to that images as well.
The WYSIWYG editor of ocportal does not provide all that functionality.

What have I missed in the help files or tutorials that would get me where I need to be?
Any help with this would go a long way to getting me off and running.

So far, I like what I see and it looks like ocportal can do everything the cms software I purchased for thousands. I just need to learn it.

Hi,

If you're looking for precision control I'd suggest just dropping down to HTML. You can still hand-code HTML on Comcode-pages by using the Comcode 'html' tag or 'semihtml' tag.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

ok, I tried that and put the actual html code in the editor (in the source code box) to format the picture I want, to the size I want and it still displays the picture in the original size.

It also removed all the sizing info, changed the float:left to vertical-align: bottom, and gave it an id number tag.

What am I doing wrong?

There's a config option to turn off the conversion to Comcode which will stop this.
