Topic tags/keywords: css float feature request suggestion

First, nice job with LJ. I’m definitely envious. Got any part-time paying positions on staff? <lol>

Actually, this would be an enhancement to the standard formatting commands that are available.

Currently, you have
  • ! src(alt)!: href

In order to make things like Blog posts more “creative”, and to allow text to flow around images, perhaps you could offer an option similar to the css style’s “float:” command.

Something like
  • ! src(alt)[location]!: href

where location is left, right, none

and to accompany the float you might want to include the clear functionality to prevent overlapping floats, such as:
  • ! src(alt)[f-location]{c-location}! :href

where the f-location is the float (left, right, none) and the c-location is the clear option (left, right, both, none)

Definitely not a “requirement”, but offers some creative opportunities to blog entries.

Thanks for kudos, Dekker.

Textile, that is the base of our rich text editor has even easier syntax for floating pictures (using < > characters). But I had to modify it significantly to have better support for the html code embedding and it seems that these modifications broke the picture’s floating support. And since there was no request for floated pictures so far I was not aware of this. I will look into this when I get some time ;) Thanks.

I guess the formatting options can get a little complex, and I’m glad Martin was able to interpret. If, as he says, there was a formatting option at one time and it was rather straightforward, I can only hope that if/when he returns it that it will be used by posters!

I do belive, they are talking about havin the ability to control the position of a image in a post. It would allow for text on the side of a image.

LOL I figured it for some type of technical computer stuff and it was just too easy to poke fun at my own ignorance.

I’ve been on this site not quite a month now but that’s long enough to know that if I need an answer I can find it here and if I’m looking for a way to do something ya check Niki’s page first.
