    Hey guys, I would only post this question here if I had already searched around and tried over 10 different widgets with no luck... and that's exactly what I did.

    I'm looking for a simple widget that allows me to post a picture and then have a description that surrounds it. My offline site is very empty and I need to fill it up. I've found several image widgets that allow a description but none have the formatting like this one:

    Capture.jpg

    In all the ones that I tried, the text only goes below the picture and or the text formatting is screwed up and the line spacing is way to big. Maybe I'm just effing it up somehow, but I would love to know if anyone has a simple widget that will do this.

    Also... I have looked all over but can not seem to find a widget that lets me add a custom navigational menu like the one in the picture. The default side menu for my theme is very bland and I would love to add some color and a different font to it. Maybe there's a way to do this inside of wordpress without the use of an external widget and I'm just half retarded...?

    Thanks, and I do apologize if the answers to my questions are extremely obvious ones.

    You don't need a plugin...you just need to know HTML, haha (I'm just busting your chops a bit).

    If you want to have text flow around the image like, you just need to put your image in a floated div...try this:

    Code:
    <div style="float:right;">
    <img src="http://linktosomeimagehere.com" />
    </div>
    Your textual content here.

    If it's WordPress and the author of the theme included all the right parts, you should be able to add class="alignleft" to the image and it'll work the same way as crazyflix described but without the extra html.
