Hey guys,

Working on my website: http://www.discoverycoasttheatregroup... i have the margins on the rhs (home page) set to 30. In my sitebuiler it shows correctly but when i publish the site the text runs all the way to the side.

I have tried changing margins but whatever i do it just jumps differently each time. I never had problems with margins before so im just wonderng if this is a little bug at the moment?

Cheers for your help!

Hello Saskia,

No sorries! It's great to see you so enthusiastic about site-building.

I'm looking at your home page with Chrome and can't see the effect descibved with this browser:


With FireFox I'm seeing the text coming up to the border:


IE 10 is showing similar to FF.

As yet I haven't examined the code and will do that shortly. To just eliminate some things: Have you copied the text into Notepad before pasting it into your site? ( I had read previously that you mentioned Wordpad and this may not work as the default Wordpad text also has embedded code)

Hi Saskia,

had a look at the code and it seems free of extraneous embedded formating code.

I can also see some redundancy in the format code which probably reflects multiple editing variations. I noticed on sites that I have done similar phenomena. One way around this is to copy each block again into notepad and then delete the corresponding site text. Then paste it again. It is best to first select your font and size. Then the text style (eg:italics). The process is to work down from the broadest specifications to the minor specifications and not to go back and change it if possible. Revisions may cause deposits or part deposits of redundancy. I can't say whether or not this will cause the effects observed in various browsers but it may well be.

Another approach is to use the panels which you are obviously familiar with . You can select an invisible background with no obvious borders. The beauty of this is that it forces the text to remain inside boundaries. You may like to experiment with this?

Fantastic! Thanks for looking into it GOP :D

Understand both options and will have a bit of a play. Great idea to use the invisible panels, that is definately going to work, smart ;)

Im sure i'll be able to fix it now! Yay!

Cheers
