I would be happy to help in any way I can. I tried finding them. Is this one of the twitter pages?
http://twitter.com/#!/tyskkvinna

Do you have a link to their website perhaps?

Also could you please PM me through the forums next time so that I don't miss your post. I almost glanced over this and noticed it was posted on the 16th. Sorry to leave you hanging like that. Just didn't know.

Josiah Wallingford :
Not sure where in Forums I should be posting ! Tho I dont do Twitter, yes that is a good site to reach Lis Bokt { http://twitter.com/#!/ tskkvinna ( spelling checked )} , '' thegeekgroup.org'' Like every other ' .Org ' has created a forum which asks you to join - in order to post - pretty much standard wherever you go ! I have Soooo - many of the sites that I visit regularly , set up to be - one click away - and just didn't think it thru . Will send a message to
" www. independentjo.com " Thank you again for your willingness to help

Im signed up to get an E-mail when ever any one responds to my posts ,(!)so im hoping you are likewise hooked up but TWO (2) things : Where in forums would you like me to respond ,(?) And we started this go-round to get you and Chris and Lis @ thegeekgroup.org together ! If you have to go through our forums a post addressed to Moderator should also make the connection - I Think !

Thanks again BigAl1048

I am very confused. What is your server, what does it do, and why can it not recognize independentjo.com? I am looking at thegeekgroup.org. It looks like they already have a nice site. What problems are they having?

Most of the confusion is caused by the fact that you are dealing w/ a Senior Citizen w/ a T.ramatic B.rain I.njury !

I get an error message what says addressee on " To : ' line not recognized ,(!)

I often have problems getting other sites to take my ( www.allum@tbs .net ) as valid ! I made an ass out of myself by saying it was a server problem !

Lis Bokt , who often acts as a moderator , asked members to help find help for a WORD PRESS problem(s) -

- This is outside my area of expertise , and so when I found your statement of willingness to help I looked for a site in Forums to leave a message to you !


I promise to close this dialog now with my Thanks for your attempts to help , please reach out to Lis Bokt , or Chris Boden , at ' thegeekgroup.org '

if you still have any energy left for help after trying to deal w/ me !

Message for Josiah Wallingford.

I enjoyed listening to your podcast with Paul Wheaton. I do have a WordPress question.

On my website about natural growing etc. I post 'photos and would like to post two photos side by side without the text floating up between them, which happens when I align one photo left and the other is aligned right. Since the left or right aligning apparently allows the floating, I tried not aligning them but could not get them to sit side by side, one was on top of the other. I tried adding the <p> format before and after the two photos but WordPress removed that. The problem with adding hard returns to get the text to move down is that with different browsers the result can appear different. The simplest is to just insert a large photo and align it centrally but I would like to use smaller photos. Do you have a suggestion?

Many thanks,

Richard

Hello Allen,

I sent a message out to Lis Bokt via twitter asking what help is needed. Hopefully she will respond.

Hello Richard,

I have two suggestions. Both of them involve installing Plugins for WordPress. I am not sure if you are using the WordPress software which allows this or if you are using the WordPress.com site which does not.

1. Install a plugin called NEXTgen Gallery. This will give you a VERY large variety of options for placing images inside of posts including what you are looking for. It does however take some getting used to. You will have to study this one.

or

2. Install a plugin called TinyMCE Advanced. What this plugin does is extends you options in the post/page editor so that you can do many more things with your post without having to know the HTML behind them. One of the options with TinyMCE Advanced is to create tables. From what you described I think this solution would be the easiest and least intrusive. Think of these tables as simply implementing a Excel spreadsheet into your post or page. You then place your images directly into the cells where you want them to show up.


I hope this helps. If these dont do what you are looking for let me know and I will take a deeper look into your site and what you are trying to do. I have put links to each of these plugins.

Hello Josiah,

I tried both your suggestions and the one that works best for me is TinyMCE Advanced, which does just what I wanted. Again, many thanks.
