Generate Shortcode

To dynamically wrap the featured image around the post text content, it is necessary for them to be on the same DOM level. Thus, we are employing PHP to generate a shortcode that sequentially outputs the image followed by the post content.

To implement this functionality, please create a new snippet in the Code Snippets plugin or include the code in your child theme's functions.php file.

function elementhow_featured_image_shortcode() {
global $post;
$featured_image = get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'full', array('class' => 'wrapped-feature-image'));
$content = $featured_image . apply_filters('the_content', $post->post_content);
return $content;
add_shortcode('wrapped_featured_image', 'elementhow_featured_image_shortcode');

now rename the code snippet as you want. I am renaming it as -

Elementor Settings

To achieve the desired effect of wrapping featured images around post text, access the Elementor Single Post template. Instead of utilizing the usual elements such as Post Content & Featured Images, follow the subsequent steps.

The text editor element will be utilized for this purpose. While a shortcode element could also be considered, utilizing the text editor element ensures access to the full range of typography styling options available.

After adding the text editor, insert the [wrapped featured image] shortcode.

The shortcode will render and you will see the result as soon as you click outside of the text editor.

You can change a few settings by using the Style options. To style post content texts, however, you are better off using global styles.

Finally, use this CSS to wrap the image around the text content of the post.

Add the CSS for the text editor element under Advanced > Custom CSS. You can change the image's size and padding by modifying the CSS. The 'float; left' part is what allows the wrapping to function!

.wrapped-feature-image {
    width: 400px;
    float: left;
@media (max-width:767px){
    .wrapped-feature-image {
    width: 230px;
