Just bought to my attention by a friend that my certain pages on my site are out of sync on IE but not on FF. Any ideas? www.ebmvejer.com

Hello Linda,
I have just taken a look at your site in both FF 3 and IE 8 and the pages appear the same in each browser. Can you give me a screen shot of what you are seeing as to how they appear differently and I will take a look.

Thanks,
Emmy

What a lovely site! I did not experience any problems viewing your site in either FF or IE7. Do you think your friend can try to do a screenshot of what she is seeing and send it to you and then you can post on here for us to see what she is talking about?

A couple of the pictures weren't appearing and also text was overlapping. Unfortunately friend can't do screen shot.

here's a screen shot - images appear OK but the text is out of sync.

Thanks for that screen shot Linda. Now I can see what you're talking about. How did you insert the image and text? Was it through the text widget? I would suggest, if you haven't already done so, placing <!--<br>--> tags after your text. (Be sure to take out the <!-- -->) This will help the text not wrap around your image.

If that doesn't help... then let me know. Another option is to put your text in a text widget, then put your image in an image widget underneath. This way the two do not merge together.

Emmy may have further suggestions as well.

Hey Linda and Littleus,

I am on board with Littleus on this one. Would try a br tag to add a line between the picture and the text or would use both text and image widgets. I am always tooting the horn of the two column widget (it is my favorite) because it makes organizing a page so easy. If you're not using it all ready give it a try!

Here is a shot of what it looks like in site builder and live when using two column widget and text widget above image widget:





Hope this helps!

Linda - I have the same problems - sometimes this can not be overcome - try first the br tag but in the very end try logging into your editor in IE. You will actually see the difference in the editor - try to find a happy medium (because if you edit it in IE it will change the way it looks in FF)

Also on another issue - the images on your homepage are too big for the job they are doing (too big in file size not screen size) If you go into your file manager > choose the image > click 'edit' and then resize them in Picnik - you will notice your homepage loads twice as fast.

Remember when you change the size of a image on the screen it does not make the file smaller it is only displayed smaller
