Apologies if any of the following is in error, I don't have the time
to verify the code just now.

I'm guessing that this happens only when the image is before any other
text on the line? If so, it's probably due to the '^img' markup rule.
I've found replacing default markup from a config file to be a bit
tricky given the way that the Markup function doesn't check if a rule
has been previously set. So, it's probably easiest for you to directly
edit the file scripts/stdmarkup.php & change the <div>s to <p>s on
line 324.

Add the following line to your config file:

$WikiStyle['img'] = array( 'apply' => 'img' );

This will let you surround the image with the markup %img
...%YourImage.jpg%% and have any valid WikiStyles apply to the image.
Example: %img class=logo id=pm%Attach:pmwiki.png%%

Use the "Path:" intermap format, ie. write
Path:/path/to/your/image.jpg or even

If you're ok with having the same effect with a different tag, try the

>>indent MyClass id=bingle<<

Blah blah blah blah.

Yadda yadda.


That'll produce a div that's a member of two classes 'indent' and
'MyClass', and has the id 'bingle'. By default, PmWiki includes the
following CSS rule:

.indent { margin-left:40px; }

which makes it practically into a blockquote.
