    Hi guys,

    Can you help me with my Author Archive page? would really like to have the image on the left hand-side, and the title and excerpt on the right. I have searched the forums for solutions and everything I have tried has not worked.

    I have created two columns using the customiser and would really like posts displayed like this:
    http://tinyurl.com/y4kjykvz (what it looks like with an image and without)

    Aligning the photo left in the customiser doesn’t wrap the text around it, and I don’t know what CSS to use.

    Many thanks

    GeneratePress 2.2.2
    GP Premium 1.7.8

    Someone else requested a similar layout:

    Tom said the first example is achievable with Generatepress (this was back in 2017 though), I tried this and unfortunately it didn’t work.

    Hi there,

    The picture you linked isn’t working for me.

    Are you looking for something like this?

    If so the align left should work.


    Oh sorry about that. I will look to host the image somewhere else, but yes Marketer would be great.

    When I do the following:
    Customise Layout > Blog > Content > Featured Images > Below or Above Title > Left

    I don’t get that result (as you can see from my link).

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Customer Support

    Your link suggested that you have it set to align center:

    Maybe try clearing your caching plugin if you are using one?


    Hi Leo, please look again. It’s definitely centred now. The layout is exactly the same; it didn’t change in the customiser either.

    Customer Support

    What you want is align left, not center πŸ™‚


    Aargh! Sorry, what I meant to say is it is definitely on the left, it is set as follows: Alignment > Left

    When I saved it nothing changed in the Customiser. The image is still in the centre.

    I have made the images even smaller 100px x 100px to see if it makes a difference, but it is still in the centre. Any ideas?

    Customer Support

    The code is showing center still.

    Can you make sure the archive toggle is on?

    If not then it should be a caching issue. Any caching plugins or server cache?


    Hi Leo, it’s definitely on Archive. Any other changes I make on the Customiser are immediate. When I changed the image size that was immediate, it’s just the Featured Images alignment – it has no affect. It’s the only thing which isn’t working as such.


    Hi Leo,

    I’ve found something out: when I uncheck 2 columns, it works. (Have left it for you to see)

    Is there a way to have this layout with 2 columns selected?

    Customer Support

    Ahh yeah I was wondering about that.

    Can you turn the column on again?

    Thanks πŸ™‚


    I’ve done it. πŸ™‚

    Customer Support

    Give this CSS a shot:

    .generate-columns-activated.post-image-aligned-left .generate-columns-container article:not(.featured-column) .post-image, .generate-columns-activated.post-image-aligned-right .generate-columns-container article:not(.featured-column) .post-image {
        float: left;
        margin-right: 15px;

    Let me know πŸ™‚


    It’s working, thank you for your help! πŸ™‚
