Hi lee,

That's an interesting and frustrating issue.

may I ask how you are deleting the YouTube link? i mean specifically are you deleting reference to the youtube movie or are you deleting the widget you are using to link to the movie?

I am trying to delete the widget but also have tried the videos on their own. It is only on that page that youtube widgets nad videos will not delete. Also if the videos were from other sources they deleted .

Thanks Lee,
Have you published your site and if so can you tell me the web site address? I should be able to see the code and maybe something will pop up in the HTML?

Hi Lee,

A very disturbing story :(

I presume the page you are referring to is www.residentialtreatmentcenterabuse.c... ?

I see that the videos are placed in a table. There seems to be a lot of patching and fitting to make the table layout look OK. It's a very complex page of layout code and beyond me to really go through and see a single error that may fix the problem.

I guess I wouldn't use a direct table layout for this requirement because you can so easily lose the positioning and have spill-overs.

I really think that your best bet would be to delete the page completely and rebuild it with Column divider widgets adding the movies left and right into the space allowed by this through an added HTML widget for each.

Separate each "line" of movies with spacer by the addition of a text widget and entering a blank line. Underneath that another Column Divider widget and so on.

Your site is excellent journalism Lee and it's a profound and important story. My feeling is to create the page as easily and as systematic as possible for your convenience and ease of updating in the future.

I'm truly very sorry I can't help with a magic fix.

This is actually the page that is not working http://www.residentialtreatmentcenter... but I believe that the fix is stil the same I just thought I would see if there was another way to get it done.

Thank you for the compliments and have a great night!
