[image] attributes

Is there any way in which I can add a border to the [imagex],[imagex_left] and [imagex_right] functions in a story?

The text in my stories is wrapping too close for my liking and I'd just like to pad the images a bit.

Cheers

add a rule to your style.css.
look in your storytext.thtml for the container's class name if it has one (if there is none then create one) and use that class name as follows:
PHP Formatted Code

.storyContainerClass img {padding: 3px;}
 

hope that helps

Sorry, being thick here - can't see a container class (at least I don't think so)

I imagine it should appear somewhere in this bit:

PHP Formatted Code
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" bgcolor="#ffffff">
<tr>
<td>
<p>{story_anchortag_and_image}{story_introtext}</p>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

 


Being a bit thick probably, but how "should" this code look given the addition to style.css suggested above.

looking at the professional theme for example, and storytext.thtml, you can find this: class="story-box." Assuming that you are using the professional theme, then the table you posted above would all be contained within another table cell, which utilizes the class name, "story-box."

If you are using another theme, just use the professional theme as an example of how to insert a class name.

Just noticed one thing - this technique seems to work fine with Firefox, but the padding does not appear to work in Internet Explorer.

This is in my style.css
PHP Formatted Code

.storyContainer img {padding: 5px; }

 


and this is in storytext.thtml
PHP Formatted Code

<td class="storyContainer">
<p>{story_anchortag_and_image}{story_introtext}</p>
</td>

 


Any ideas?

try this: use margin instead of border.

I don't understand - sorry.

Surely the line in the css applies a padding attribute to img tags (or have I misunderstood that completely)? Did you mean use margin instead of padding?

whoops! I meant margin instead of padding...

where you have "padding: 5px;" just use "margin: 5px;" instead.
