Index page is not working right.

Everything was working wonderfully until a few moments ago, now when I go to edit pages, there's not the normal blue tab and border that show up around a section to edit, and there are huge spaces where there's nothing in them, just the word "margin" and an "x" to delete that block if I want to. Also, if I scroll down to where my content is NOW located (under blank areas that I didn't put there), the page keeps scrolling itself back up. Has something changed or is this not working properly? Thanks.

Hi Bellamamma,

Wondering if you have pasted any text from a word-processed source like MS Word?

If so this can have effects (and worse) as you have described. The first thing to do is to delete the added text. You need to clean the embedded formatting code out of the text before pasting on your site. The easiest way is to Copy from the source and Paste it into Notepad. Then Copy from Notepad and and then Paste it onto your page.

If this isn't the cause then can you tell us your published sites web-address and I can look at the source remotely.

Nope, I typed it in there from scratch. It looks right on the published site, but not the editing page. Here's the link: http://my-creative-creations.yolasite...

Hi Bellamamma,

When I check your Sitebuilder, everything is functioning properly, but I do see all the content has been cleared from the page. Did you add some code to your page or delete content from your widgets? If you want it to match your published website you will need to rebuild it by copying over the content from your published site.

It's still not working. All I have is stock/default pictures, the words margins, and the "x's" to delete the blocks and it still keeps scrolling itself up. Sorry.

Oh sorry, no, I haven't added any of my own coding or anything there.

Nevermind, I think I just may have to go with another free site builder/host that I've used in the past. Thanks for your help.
