When I click on a page to access the text for editing purposes, the spacing gets all wacked out and the cursor keeps going to the top or bottom of the screen. I'm using IE 7 and I have cleaered the browsing history and cache. www.biathlonns.ca

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for your post - I'm taking a look at your site. Could you confirm which particular page and which text has the problem? Or is it all text on all pages?

Hi Bruce,

I can see that you have some text copied from MS Word on the Links and Membership pages - this can cause problems like the one you're experiencing.

Copying and pasting directly from MS Word (or another word processor) onto your site, can bring along a whole lot of unwanted formatting that is not web friendly and can easily break your page or cause strange things to happen.

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.

Please note that this would be the case with any browser-based text editor you might use, not just Yola. It is a universal website building problem.

The solution in this case - you can delete the existing text and then re-add it to your page following the steps above. You can also use this Text Editor (http://html101.yolasite.com/) to format and spell check your text and strip out MS Word code. It will generate valid markup which you can safely paste into the Yola site builder.

Please let us know if that helps the problem or not?
