Hi It is the Man from the UK again!! So I am trying to add text next to a photo, and have followed these guidelines:
Wrapping Text with Pictures

You can place an image and text side by side as follows:

Add a Text Widget to your page.
Click "Picture" button (the icon that looks like a green tree in a picture frame, roughly in the middle of the toolbar) on the Text Editing Toolbar.
A dialog box will open up and allow you to browse for and select an image.
Once you have added your image to your page, select it by clicking on it.
You will then see three new buttons on your Text Editing Toolbar: a picture with text below (No Wrap), text on the right (Wrap Left) and text on the left (Wrap Right).
Select the option that suits you and start typing. Your text will then wrap around the image.

However I do not seem to have 3 new buttons on the top row?

All I have is the cursor at the bottom which allows me to add one line only!!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You

Gordon

Gordon check out this video I just made to show you. To use one of the buttons for the three choices you must first click on your image once to show the buttons in the text widget tool bar.

Thank you Honey Bear for the help, great Video. However one thing I have noticed, after you click the fox, you go to an icon that is red, click this, and then go back to the photo, BUT I do not have a Red Icon in my box? So how do I get one.

Thanks

Icon that is red??? Huh???

I don't see an icon that is red or one that I have clicked. The only icon that has any red in it is the "remove formatting" icon (two letter A's and a little red round sign with a white line through it) and that you don't need to use for this issue in any case.

Sometimes (in the video) when I placed (moved) my mouse/cursor on the toolbar I rapidly moved it left to right and back again to show you that there was no three buttons that you had inquired about above and that to make them visible I had to first click the image to make them all appear.

As far as red icon is concerned... There is no need to use it anyway. ;)

Sorry does NOT work. I did everything your video said, put picture in, put some text in, then went to picture, your video show your mouse cursor with an arrow, all I get is a straight symbol So when I click the picture it goes blue, no three extra lights in box either.Now either I am doing something wrong, or what your video shows does not work . Sorry

One further question please the photo I have put on the site is me, and it is BOG, and it is even scaring me!! LOL. I can't seem to make it smaller. Do I need to start again? Or can I make it smaller with Text by the side. Thanks

So this one, Sanja, is a Little Star - OK.
