Positioning Images.

I am really pleased with Power Post and S-Drive, 'though as yet I'm not sure just how I will use them. I am enjoying finding out just what a guy of limited skills can achieve. So far so good.

Would it be possible in future versions to provide tabs the justify images to the left, centre or right of the display? This would be most useful. Perhaps there is already a way that I have missed?

Thank you for the upgrade. I trust that your Flash Blogger will still be available for use on other sites?

I have thought about this.

The message would look better if the image could be floated left or right with the text wrapped around it, especially for the smaller image.

The themes are css based so why not use css for placing images.

Thanks for your input Jim.
I think for simple folk just wanting a fast post and control of how content is positioned, the provision of the usual positioning format buttons on the toolbar would be useful. You could then easily justify text and images with just a click.

We plan to provide more advanced tools for post editing, we just want to see how people use Streams and see what features everyone feels are most important. Then we'll work on those first.

I look forward to seeing how things develop. No doubt things will be done with the usual CoffeeCup elan. The functions presently provided seem to be working well. Good work all.

I hate that I can't make S-Drive look like my website, since I know nothing about css. I think you guys should give us more option on customizing for those who know nothing about css. Then I will pay attention to S-Drive, for now I have no interest in it, I'll stick to my flash blogger for now lol.

Why so negative, Tuksedo? ;)

Seriously though, more options are in the works. Also, you could always embed your Stream in any page on your existing website and it will blend right in. There are more options for how to embed Streams on the way, too.

Who me Negative hell no, I eat, sleep, shit coffee cup. I just don't agree on how CC can discontinue a program that I find useful on my website. All that the program needs in my case was the ability to move entries around then I'm good to go. I tried using the S-Drive on my page using the free themes given, and it through my website off by a mile and I refuse to sponsor something that might not meet my need.

Here is a site that I am working on, and you can see how the flash blogger is useful regarding customizing of the size so it can be placed anywhere on the site. http://cold-north-enterprise.com/index.html

Just because flash blogger has been discontinued doesn't mean you "can't" use it anymore... Just means there won't be any further updates to the program, and support will be limited to a certain time constraint.

But given the atmosphere of Mac products and Flash, I see S-Drive and Stream as a huge positive for developers from this point forward. Another positive that I see, is that CC is essentially allowing us (the end users) to help mold this into what we need. They have been very attentive to our input, and have implemented many requests already. How great is that :D!!!:cool:

The Flash Blogger didn't do anything you cant do with Firestarter, anyway.
CoffeeCup... Yeah, they are the best!

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
