Lists pages are a good place to organize information. Viewers can organize the list by adjusting the way they sort various columns. 

Allow you to easily track lists of information. You can choose from a list of templates or configure your own custom columns. Items can be easily added, updated, and removed. Page subscribers are notified of list additions, deletions, and updates.

Adding Captions to Google Sites Images

posted Aug 15, 2010, 12:26 PM by Joe Fahs   [ updated Nov 20, 2012, 5:28 AM by Joe Fahs ]

You can add captions to images on a Google Sites page by editing HMTL code. Type your caption text after the IMG SRC tag for the image and before the ending DIV tag. For an example refer to the captioned image to the right, which is located on this page. http://sites.google.com/a/elmira.edu/abyron10portfolio
  1. Add the image to the page and make sure you pick an alignment (left, right or centre)
  2. Once added use the HTML button to edit the HTML
  3. Find the image in the HTML (<img src="...">) and around it should be a <div style="..."></div> tag: add the caption after the <img src="..."> and before the closing </div>
  4. Press Shift + Enter or Return to move the text under the image and to add multiple lines.
  5. Use the Update button to close the HTML view and you can then select the text and format it e.g. centre, bold etc. You can also edit the text directly under the image.
