Free, Easy WordPress Tutorials

These are all easy WordPress tutorials and they are all free! Whether you have a WordPress blog or a WordPress website, most of the tutorials are for beginners, but there are intermediate-level tutorials and discussion about advanced techniques for WordPress including how to customize a WordPress theme, recommendations about the best WordPress plugins and themes, hacks and workarounds for WordPress using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), PHP and HTML – and much, much more! 😉

There are a few advanced tutorials. The tutorials’ degree of difficulty is determined by the amount of skill and experience you need with HTML, CSS and in some cases PHP code. If you don’t have experience with these, don’t worry! That’s the beauty of WordPress.

Does WordPress Version 2.5 Use Different Code to Wrap Text Around an Image?

A reader of the popular WordPress tutorial post “How to Position an Image and Wrap Text Around an Image Using WordPress” suggests that the code to wrap text around an image is different in WordPress version 2.5.

HERE’S AN UPDATE: Wrapping text around an image in WordPress version 2.5 or later is much easier than in earlier versions. You may not need to use any HTML code to make adjustments to alignment. Padding around the image is added automatically. See the tutorial “How to Position an Image and Wrap Text Around an Image Using WordPress 2.5 or Later” for more.

Still, the idea that WordPress uses different code to wrap text around an image doesn’t make sense to me. It’s possible that the improvements to text wrap are in version 2.6, not version 2.5.

I do notice that WordPress inserts some new CSS class information with the image, like “alignnone size-full”, but this does not effect the inline CSS I am using to position the image and wrap text around it. The text above wraps as it should around the right side of the image. I don’t see any difference. So hopefully our reader will tell me more about what he means by the “‘edit image’ extra space issue” in WordPress 2.5.

Just for the heck of it, here’s the text wrapping around the left side of the image.

What does everyone think of the new WordPress 2.5 admin panel organization and look-and-feel?
