Inline Images
As of WordPress with blocks, to add inline images within text do this:
* Insert an image block (+ sign in black box below in text entry area > Image
* Upload or add image to it (above will display a box with “Upload”, “Media Library” and “Insert from URL” options
* Move the image to the desired paragraph using its blocks up or down arrows (visible in a menu bar which pops us when the image is clicked)
* Move (float) the image left or right within the text in the paragraph (This is achieved via the “Change alignment” menu option available via the pop up menu bar which appears when the image is clicked.

Note some of the above values are implicit so don’t really need to be added. I did for knowledge purposes.

Note also custom css has to be added to the theme’s custom css section via Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS. It is a bit too long to be posted here so it can viewed at that location.

Display Posts – Multiple Columns
The plugin on its own will not display columns. A separate extension “dps-columns-extension-master” has to be installed. It will however appear in the Plugins list as Columns Extension for Display Posts Shortcode.

Creating A “proper” Home Menu Item (to display your homepage) In The Top Navigation Bar
The initial “Home” menu item may have some quirks in that it will point to the “Home” page – created when you opt to use a separate static page for your homepage. In the browser address bar you will see: sitename.com/home instead of simply sitename.com.

In order to avoid this create a menu item and add it to your nav bar:
Appearance > Menus > Select a menu to edit > Nav Menu (Primary Menu) > Select > Custom Link > Enter the site’s URL in the URL text box & then the link’s text (the text that will be displayed) > Add to Menu
