    In wordpress, we have really cool feature which allow us to align the images anywhere in the post and also resize the images to fit the scheme of the things.

    It would be awesome if XF could incorporate something like this... the current setup in vB (3.8.x) is elementary with attachment images being shown ugly at the bottom of the posts without any option to change the look and feel.

    For example, what i have achieved by template modifications:

    Thanks!

    I have achieved this on my current site using BBCode.

    Text can be wrapped around images and other elements by using float tags for example.
    The size of those images can also be set using width and height BB Code.

    It's not as user friendly as a dynamic drag and drop system but it works.

    I doubt anything like this will be in 1.0, or even a few releases later.

    Can I ask that the positioning of images and attachments is improved so that we can present posts like proper blog or news items?
    The ability to drag and drop images in order to justify them (ideally with a 5px margin) to position nicely in the text will improve the readability.

    Mike had this to say about floating containers in posts before:

    How can I align an image (uploaded, or image url) to the right or left with text-wrap?

    Thanks for your fast reply, Brogan.

    OK, did all that. But... Image floats right but text doesn't wrap around the image. It's also very unwieldy in the edit box.

    Is there no easy way to do this like WP, for example? I'd like it to be easy for members to align images in their posts.

    The text wrapping works fine, I have used it on my own site.

    That is currently the only way to do it.

    I create a post and have [float="right"] pic attached [/float] then have my text here.

    The image floats right fine, but the text doesn't wrap. It's underneath the image.

    Hi Brogan, I have just downloaded your bb code xml files. How do I install those?

    Figured it out. Your float_right works fine.

    Thanks.
