Can't get photos to wrap around text

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Up until today, I have never had an issue with text wrapping around images in Squarespace. Is this due to a new update?

For blog posts, I like to drag and drop images to the right hand side of the screen, with the text wrapping around it. I'm now unable to do that. Is anyone else having this issue? Or does anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks for your help!

what is the solution, please, for wrapping text around an image

If you are using the newest version of Squarespace 7.1, you can currently wrap text around an image block by using the 'Classic Editor' in a 'Classic' page section. It isn't currently possible to do this with 'standard' Fluid Engine page sections, so if you'll need a new section.

To wrap text around an image block, first add a 'Classic' section to a page. You will find this option last on the list (highlighted in yellow in the screenshot below):


Once you have a classic section, you can add your Text Block and Image Block and drag them into the required positions like this:

I'm hoping this is currently being implemented in the new fluid engine as this seems to be broken 'again.'  I tried using the workaround above (thank you!) and can see "Looking for sections built with our classic editor?" hyperlinked at the bottom of the page, but when I click it, it just takes me to the top of the page and there's no way to add a classic section. Maybe someone from Squarespace can reassure me/us this feature is coming back? It seems very basic. Thank you!

@paul2009 Thanks for the workaround, it has saved me for the time being!

But it seems crazy that they haven't addressed this before rolling out the update. I really hope they are sorting it as a priority.

@Phobic78So far there seems to be no indication of fixing/bringing this on to FE.  The -text wrapping or "pull quotes" as SS describes it may not be flashy, but its a classic and needed feature. I've logged with customer service, perhaps if enough of us do they will take into consideration ...
