Div for vertical (portrait) images and captions on the right side of the page.

<img class="art" ... />
For images embedded in articles

<p class="caption">Image caption text</p>
For image captions

G. Embedding Media

1. Embedding Images

Put the following code in the article where you want the image to appear:

<div class="imgCapL">
<img class="art" src="/sites/default/files/placeholder1.jpg" alt="This is a placeholder image" />
<p class="caption">This is a placeholder image[bib]NID[/bib].</p>
</div>

Alternate between “imgCapL" and “imgCapR" so that media will appear alternately on the left and right hand sides of the page.

For vertically aligned (portrait) images replace “imgCapL" and “imgCapR" with “VimgCapL" and “VimgCapR" respectively.

Replace “placeholder1.jpg"" with the Name of the file uploaded to the bibliography entry.

Replace “This is a placeholder image" with a caption describing the media’s content (1-2 sentences).

Replace “NID"" with the node id of the media’s bibliography entry.

2. Youtube Videos

Put the following code in the article where you want the video to appear:

<div class="imgCapR">
<div videoID="nxmWfbXS4Pw"
startTime="300"
endTime="600"
height="172"
width="305"
id="youtube-player"></div>
<p class="caption">Don't forget to be awesome![bib]NID[/bib]</p>
</div>

Alternate between “imgCapL" and “imgCapR" so that media will appear alternately on the left and right hand sides of the page.

Replace "nxmWfbXS4Pw". with the video id provided by Youtube. It's the sequence of letters and numbers at the end of the video's URL. You can also get it from the video's embed code.

Change "300" and "600" to the number of seconds from the beginning of the video to start and end playback respectively. If you want to play the whole video then delete these two lines.

Do not change the width and height numbers, as they are set to match the surrounding div.

Replace “Don't forget to be Awesome" with a caption describing the media’s content (1-2 sentences).

Replace NID with the node id of the bibliographic entry for the video to create a footnote.
