How to assign css class to image

Thursday 08 January 2009 9:59:30 pm - 4 replies

Please forgive a brand-new user what appears to be a most basic question: how to I associate a CSS class with an inserted image? That is, when I edit content (using the WYSIWYG editor) and insert an image from the media library, how do I assign that image a CSS class so I can (for instance) float the image left and wrap text around it? Thanks in advance for help.

Hi Brian,

I'm not shore if I understood you well. But here is a suggestion:
- If your image is inserted in the media library of the administration interface and you want to associate it as an object in an article, than you can add the fallowing code in the xml block:

<embed size="original" align="left" offset="0" limit="1" href="ezobject://your_embed_object_id" />.

I hope this can be useful for you.
If you any question, please ask.

You can assign a class when using the online editor's embed feature. The list of classes available to use with content comes from the 'AvailableClasses' array in any one of the settings block of content.ini and templates for the class (if applicable) in override.ini

Here is an example of two different styles which came with eZ Webin package.

<embed size="medium" view="embed" class="highlighted_object" align="center" custom:offset="0" custom:limit="5" href="ezobject://168" />

<embed size="medium" view="embed" class="vertically_listed_sub_items" align="center" custom:offset="0" custom:limit="10" href="ezobject://243" />

Hello Heath,

I came upon this when searching for a similar problem. I have this in the content.ini.append.php:






These show up in the online editor window (pull down), but not in the produced HTML... My idea was that this woud produce either a class= to the img-object or a wrapper (<div ...>blunk.gif Emoticon around it.

Am I far out?
