Main title field - this is an internal title, it doesn’t get shown in the content.
Select a layout option from the dropdown. To view the alternate styles select one layout, click either ‘Publish’ or ‘Update’ and then ‘Preview Changes’. A new tab will be launched showing the article you have created. You can then view the various other layouts by selecting the other options and updating and previewing changes.
Rich text editor field - Paste the main chunk of your content in here, you can use various type styles such as bold/italic etc. You will also be able to add YouTube videos, inline boxouts and dropcaps to the content.
Add inline images - use the ‘Add Media’ button, top left of the rich text editor, and upload or select an existing image. You can add a caption to the image in the panel on the right of the media library. You do not need to apply any styles to the image. Images should not be any wider than 1536px and should not be higher that 2000px.
It is now possible to use images with text wrap as well as our original full width image options.
- Use the Add Media button to open the Media Library and select the required image.

Alignment Options: Left | Right | Centre | None
Use these Alignment options to position your image on your page. Note: text will wrap around the left and right options on screen sizes above 640px.
By selecting ‘None’ you will be able to use our images just like you have been able to in previous versions of Express.
Adding a link to an image
