pic2Everyone loves to see images in a well-crafted post or page! The better you think it out - the better your layout will look.  We have incorporated the latest code from WordPress 2.6 and 2.7 into FlexxTheme, giving you incredible flexibility in the layout and appearance of images in your content.

To the right, you will see an image inserted with the “alignright” class from the media uploader. You should always be mindful of your content width to be sure that the text extends to the bottom of the image or beyond to wrap around it. With too wide of a content area and an image that is too narrow, it takes more text to create an attractive piece. It is a good thing that I mentioned this, because if you were to view this with the “no sidebar” layout available, this text stops halfway down the image and looks terrible.

Some people will prefer to start out their pages or posts with a small image in the top right, so we’d be remiss in neglecting showing off that pic4ability. You should always be mindful of your content width to be sure that the text extends to the bottom of the image or beyond to wrap around it. With too wide of a content area and an image that is too narrow, it takes more text to create an attractive piece. It is a good thing that I mentioned this, because if you were to view this with the “no sidebar” layout available, this text stops halfway down the image and looks terrible. Since this image is even narrower than the image at the top, the text at the beginning of this sentence still does not reach the bottom of this image and I needed to add more content.

Finally there are people who may want to center their photo in their post but previously this feature didn’t work just right.  We have changed this up so that you can get a more balanced and professional look to your post.

Now it’s up to you to get FLEXX and begin your creative process for building your own blog and website!

What We Can Learn from History.

Posted by: Amy Jones | Comments (0)

Our nation is great and there is much we can learn from American History to help us not only at being better Americans but also improves how we might look at the opportunities in business that we have been given.  Abraham Lincoln wrote one of the most famous speeches in history and content that is often referred to in educational learning experiences.  I would like for us to read the Gettysburg Address and then see how it can apply to business practices.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

Posted by: Amy Jones | Comments (0)

Response time? Most other places don’t even provide a shred of support.  You guys have are on this like white or brown, as it were, on rice!  I don’t mean to gush but for the price of your themes, the quality and the support, it’s got one of the best values on the interweb.  Not to mention the community here helps others with questions, provides solutions for common needs and problems.  You’ve just hit a homer here.  It’s very impressive. –Rob Saxe
