Wrap text around image in CMS

Is there a way to wrap text around images for CMS articles? I think this would produce much more professional looking content and clear up some empty space.

Thanks

Click to edit the image (hover over image, click edit pencil) and align it left or right and the text will flow around it.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

I am hovering, but I see no pencil... maybe I'm dumb?

I don't have a pencil either. I can click on the image which produces a box that I can resize, but no pencil. I'm running 4.1.1

I can't even get a box to resize.

Is there just code for this that I could learn? I'm an admin, so I suppose I could do it in HTML, but that doesn't help my users.

You need to be editing the article and be in WYSIWYG mode in order to get the edit pencil to show.

Whoops... thought I was in WYSIWYG mode since I had all the editing tools. This is not it? Where do I got to get into it?

Nope, you are not in WYSIWYG mode. It doesn't look like it is available either (you would have this little A/A box in the upper right corner next to the up/down arrows). If you are using Safari or Chrome (perhaps Opera too?), then you cannot use WYSIWYG mode.

Aww, balls. All right, I guess I'll break out Firefox to do the more nitty gritty editing until Safari support arrives.

Strange because I am in WYSIWYG mode and I still don't have a pencil.

I'm just able to resize it. Any ideas on what would cause that?

So the little A/A is showing as highlighted? And we are talking about attachments here, not images added to the page using [ img ] tags.

Okay, I've managed to get the pencil to show up by using an attachment. I select "left" and the preview image shows the test wrapping around it, however when I hit submit, the text is only on one line preceding the image.


EDIT: Never mind, I got it working. Thanks for your help!

Hello, mind telling me how you do it?
I can't even make the pencil to show.

I'm in WYSIWYG, using Firefox.

I double clicked the image and an image setting interface appear, but it disappear straight away after that.
I can't edit anything.

If it's disappearing right away, then you have something wrong with your style or files.

Create a new style with no parent:
  • Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Add New Style
  • Parent Style: No Parent Style
  • Title: Default vBulletin
  • Allow User Selection: Yes
  • Save
Then browse the site using that totally default vbulletin style - do you still have the same problem?

The forum was freshly installed, it's still empty and used for testing many things. I've reinstalled the forum completely from scratch and it's still the same. No pencil for the image and if I double clicked, an interface appear but it disappear straight away before I am able to edit anything. I'm using vb CMS articles to do this testing.



The only different thing that I did in nowadays installation was that I typed:

$config['Database']['dbtype'] -> I wrote 'mysqli' instead of the default 'mysql'

Not sure if I misunderstand the vb manual, thus I said it here.
