Hi,
I've been trying to navigate my blog page, and something's not right there. First, all my paragraphs that show in draft mode come together as one long, running paragraph in the published mode.

Also, I have duplicates of a pic in the draft mode of my very first post, and can't figure out how to remove one duplicate. Also, the text won't wrap around the pics, or, again, keep the paragraph breaks.

Could this be another IE thing? Not sure why it's happening, 'cause my posts on threads have al the paragraph breaks...

Thanks!

P.S. Boopaints tried to help me. She mentioned a bar that allows me to place my picture, left, right, or center. To date, I have not found any such bar, or link or anything on my blog control page... Confused

Three, that is a lovely snapshot of a page that's never, ever come up for me when I've gone to edit my blog...where do I get that page with all those options?

If you aren't seeing it then you will need to use Firefox would be my best guess...it solves all of the problems of the world Big Grin

Ok, Three. I went into the website using Google Chrome, and now I can see a WHOLE LOTTA STUFF I didn't before!!!

So, now that I'm there, I've edited and the paragraph breaks are showing on the blog. Only thing I still can't get is how to make the text wrap around the picture. Also, I have two of the same picture showing in the Upload bar to the right.

Thanks! Hurray! (getting excited, 'cause we"re getting closer to solving this mystery!)

Hurray! Hurray!

Click on the picture in your blog that you want the text to wrap around, then click on the little tree icon, and then follow the steps in the first screen shot I sent.
