Hello Drupal Stack Exchange crowd. I am working on building a view for a content type that has several fields and an image. I am using an "Unformulated list"

Using Drupal 7 core and the most recent update of views.

My goal is to align the field image to the right so the text is right next to it.

I have put the text field and image "Inline" in field settings and "remove HTML" formatting and changed the text to "Plain Text". This places the text starting at the bottom right corner of the image but I'm wanting the text to align starting at the top right. I have tried rewriting the field to do this but have had no luck.

It seems like something like this would be very simple without .css (since I'm not the best at it).

My Questions are:

  1. If I use .css, what style sheet should I insert the code into (Views, Theme, ??)?

  2. Is there a way to get around using a .css to accomplish what I want to do?

Thank you in advance for your time. WO

Addition info 10/22/15 - in response to argiepiano: I already use and love display suite and have never noticed the "Display Suite" option in Views. THANK YOU. I have gone through the first 5 videos but: I still have trouble getting text/images to align correctly in Display Suite (css), do you mayhap know of any good videos or articles on that?

Thanks Again, WO

  • Question: do you want to display a list of more than one node, or just a single node?

  • There will be several nodes displayed, new ones being created daily. I would love some good documentation on creating .css DS field styles after watching those videos from the link here. Thank you again for that! Questions? Where do I add the .css styles to be used on DS fields (sites/all/modules/ds/css ?) (I'd prefer a location with the quickest load time). Will I need to call the .css from that folder or does it not matter? ..sorry I'm used to HTML. I think I can figure out the rest from there. Oct 23 '15 at 13:18
  • OK, to create css classes that apply anywhere in your site (including your DS displays) you need to: (1) Create a subtheme of the theme you are using (not absolutely necessary but highly recommended - you don't want to modify your original theme.) See drupal.org/node/225125. (2) Create a new css file and place it in your subtheme folder. (3) add the line stylesheets[all][]=yourNewCssFile.css. IT may be best to start a new question for longer explanation. These comment boxes have a limited number of characters :)

  • There is a lot of documentation on subthemes, I have already gotten my hands dirty and made good progress.I wanted to thank you again for your help here and share a link to a video that may help others in creating a Drupal Subtheme: codekarate.com/daily-dose-of-drupal/creating-drupal-7-sub-theme Oct 26 '15 at 13:34

I would suggest you use Display Suite. This module allows you to define a layout for the entry form and/or the display of any content type. If you want to use Views to create a list of nodes, you can use the layout you created to display each of the nodes in the View by selecting Unformatted list of Full posts in the Display format dropdown lists in the Views wizard.

There are several excellent video tutorials for Display Suite, but I'd recommend the ones its author created.
