Hello dyfed,

I'm spotting some MS Word code on both of your blog pages. When you copy and paste rich text directly from MS Word (or another word processor) onto your site, this brings along a whole lot of unwanted formatting that is not web friendly and can easily affect your page. It can also cause your site to show up inconsistently in different browsers. The problem might not always show up immediately, but sometimes it happens after you save and navigate to a different page or log out and log in again. To avoid display and loading issues, the best alternative is first to paste your text into NotePad (in the accessories folder of your computer) and then paste it as plain text onto your Yola page. You can then use the Yola text editor to format your text as desired.

This is something that happens with copying and pasting from MS Word onto web-based applications and not unique to Yola.

The solution in this case:
1. Go to the blog post in the Sitebuilder. Copy the text and paste it into Notepad.
2. On the blog post, click on the HTML button in the text editing toolbar.
3. Select all the code that appears (ctrl-A will select all) and delete it.
4. Click on the HTML button again so that you're back to the text version of editing.
5. Copy and paste the text in Notepad back onto the blog post.

It is a bit of a workaround to fix it, so if you need any help, please let us know.
