With BE 188.8.131.52 as-is with standard theme using the editor I was able to wrap text around an image with no issue.
When you insert image click on it in the editor and at the bottom of the image you have some positioning options:
Float, Float left, Float right
If you are using a different theme or one that you had modified if the editor align buttons are not working then the issue is with your CSS in your theme and not BE itself.
__Are we supposed to expect everyone to know HTML and CSS? __
If the theme that you are using is made "correctly" then in "theory" all a user have to do is edit their content with the BE Editor and everything will be displayed as they had wished for it to be displayed.
The key here is having your "theme" made correctly at the start to use as your "base" if that is correct then the answer to your question,
Does everyone "users included" expect to know HTML and CSS, the answer would be No.
The major factors here when using the BE editor is :
- BE CSS styling
- Your Base Theme CSS styling
- 3rd party CSS styling, bootstrap, widgets,extensions and etc
Because of the many different sources of CSS there exist many points where there will be styling conflicts with the CSS and this causing issues like your editor align buttons not working.
This is where the knowledge of HTML and CSS would come into play for the person responsible for "creating/editing" the theme that you had installed and are using, to set-up your theme according to the needs and the environment it is in.
One Theme installed in one BE instance installed on another site that uses different 3rd party CSS styling has the potential of both sites looking different even through both are using the same "theme".
This is where your "final" adjustments are needed and for that you will need to know HTML and CSS.
Once that is done, then when ever the user makes any new or edit their content it will be displayed according to their needs that was made in the theme.
They would not need to know HTML or CSS at all just basic skills on how to type into a word processor is needed.
So for you with editor align buttons not working with images you need to hunt down the CSS that is causing it not to work in your BE install.
First stop would be to use FireBug, or in FireFox web developer extension "Inspect Element".
Start with the actual webpage where the image is at, open up one of the tools mention above and start to turn off CSS selectors to see if it aligns.
Once it does then you know which CSS selector is giving you the issue.
Fix that and problem solved forever.
Or you can post the URL to the problem post and I can take a look at it myself or someone else here can too :)
Its a lot easier to see the actual issue and look at the CSS and HTML :)
Have a great day!
