Blockquote

The blockquote tag can be used to display a quote from a person or from another site. It can be as long or as short as you like, and it is displayed like this:

“All the flowers of the field, and many of the beasts of the plain, and now the very orbs of heaven, are turned into metaphors and symbols by which the glory of Jesus may be manifested to us. Where God takes such pains to teach, we ought to be at pains to learn.”

CHARLES SPURGEON

Post Media

Left aligned

A left aligned image.

A left aligned image.

This is an image, aligned to the left. It also has a small caption. On smaller screen sizes, the image (and the caption) will clear the content and be centered in the content container. For the floated image to look good, the surrounding text will need to be of a certain length. That’s why I’m writing this filler text. If the material from this page is copy-pasted into the post created in wordpress, the relevant formatting should be preserved. Then you can simply update the appropriate elements with the image and text you intend to use. There are some tools for this in the visual editor, but those of you comfortable with basic html conventions may want to consider using the text editor, for greater control.

Right aligned

A right aligned image.

A right aligned image.

This is an image, aligned to the right. It also has a small caption. On smaller screen sizes, the image (and the caption) will clear the content and be centered in the content container. For the floated image to look good, the surrounding text will need to be of a certain length. That’s why I’m writing this filler text. It is my hope that, having been given a clear format for setting up images in articles, you all will consider using images with some frequency, at least for opinion pieces. Considering how visual a medium the internet is, breaking up a long block of text with an image notably increases readability.

Center aligned

A center aligned image.

A center aligned image.

This is a center aligned image. It also has a small caption. Text wrapping is not as much a concern for centered images like this, so perhaps they are less intimidating to include.

FIELDSET



If you are inclined to be industrious, you can always look here for additional formatting conventions as they are appropriate to WordPress, especially if you do intend to use images in a significant way. The editor may be able to perform some functions for you, if you wish to add images or other features but lack the technical skills to do so yourself. My availability is limited to be creating significant elements of new content, but you may ask me to handle certain functions, if they are beyond your ability.
