Paragraph left, paragraph right, paragraph left

Hi everyone,

I have a question that might be a CSS or a Textile issue. I’m writing an article that contains paragraphs aligned to the right AND left (usually for having a picture on the left, and the text on the right). Unfortunately, if my second (text) paragraph isn’t long enough to clear the picture, the next left-aligned picture starts in the middle of the column, left of the first picture. How can I force a paragraph to start below both of the previous paragraphs? I haven’t figured out how to create paragraphs to fill the space.

I hope I’m explaining this clearly. My apologies if this is a super fundamental thing that I’m missing, but I thank you for any advice or for pointing me in the right direction.

Hi Ryan

In your css add .clearboth: {clear:both} and if you are using textile start the paragraph with a p(clearboth).

ie

p(clearboth). This is the beginning of a cleared paragraph.
