I would like to create a basic page within Drupal 7 that would consist of some images mixed with HTML. I would use CSS to position the images within the HTML content, sort of like a magazine or newspaper article.

I would like for the end user to be able to edit/replace these images along with the HTML yet the image field did not seem to give me flexibility to place the image within the HTML content.

I could upload the images via FTP directly to the ../sites/default/files directory and manually reference the images ...

<img src="../sites/default/files/image-name.png" />

but that would not allow the end users to manage the images from with Drupal, plus I would need to give them FTP access to the filesystem which I would like to avoid.

Any suggestions on how to work around this?

  • I should have mentioned that I would like to find a solution where the end user can upload content (i.e. images) themselves.

You can do this with the following modules:

Lot of setup and config, but once its there, its there so to speak.

    Just to add, you don't need both WYSIWYG and CKEditor drupal modules, only one of them should suffice. I prefer WYSIWYG module.

  • I installed WYSIWYG. Then tried installing the latest CKEditor (v4). WYSIWYG did not recognize it. I then installed the latest 3.x version of CKEditor and it worked fine.

  • This solution provides no way for the user to upload an image.
