Table styled using class "table-3"
This is the table style we recommend using for most lists with multiple columns of information. Be sure to set the width of the table to a width equal to or narrower than the width of the column containing. For instance, the width of the content for the 2 column template is 690pixels while the width of the column for the 3 column template is 450pixels.

Image Alignment


Align Left or Right

Align LeftFloat RightTo align an image left or right, place the image in the page, resize it to the desired size and then add the style "float-left" or "float-right" and any surrounding copy will wrap around the image with a margin added to the side and bottom so that the text does not run directly up against the image. We recommend that you resize the image below 320x320 pixels prior to uploading it to the server using an image editing program like Photoshop.  This will help with page loading speed because images resized after they are uploaded to the server will still have the same file size as the original image even though their presentation size is smaller.

Align Left or Right with border around image

Image Left with BorderImage Left with BorderTo align an image left or right, place the image in the page, resize it to the desired size and then add the style "img_lt" or "img_rt" and any surrounding copy will wrap around the image with a margin added to the side and bottom so that the text does not run directly up against the image. We recommend that you resize the image below 320x320 pixels prior to uploading it to the server using an image editing program like Photoshop.  This will help with page loading speed because images resized after they are uploaded to the server will still have the same file size as the original image even though their presentation size is smaller.

Adding a caption underneath an image

Table with Caption
Image with caption using "address" font style.

An easy way to add a caption underneath an image is to first insert a table with two rows.  In the top row, insert your image and in the bottom row, insert the caption.  You can then align and style the table using either of the styles listed above for images.  Be sure to add the style to the table and not the image. Advanced users should add style="border-collapse:separate;" to the table and style="padding:0px;" to the td cell containing the image in addition to setting the cellpadding, cellspacing and border to "0" for the table.
