I am loading a text box with a coloured background at the bottom of pages - when I line up the bottom of the page in Firefox, they are not aligned in IE and vice versa.
What is one to do????

Timothy,

If you email contact@yola.com someone will put you in touch with the right person.

If you have emailed our CEO then you have gone as high as you can and you have reached the "real" Yola. Our CEO receives a vast number of emails and cannot possibly respond to all of them. You can also email contact@yola.com and if there is someone else available who can respond to you, they will.

Thanks! Will do. -- TW

PS: I thought maybe emailing the CEO would be sending the proposal "too" high up. I guessed maybe that's why I got no response. I'll try the contact email. Thanks again.

Also, if yola is like most companies, contacting the ceo will just probably get you ignored for all future requests.

Most companies go by a chain of command and if you disrespect the ceo by contacting him BEFORE the others, then you'll get no response. I recommend doing what Ruth suggested and contacting yola via contact@yola.com and let the lesser positions connect you with the right department. It's THEIR job to take emails before the ceo receives them... that's my GUESS and I could be wrong. But I've owned businesses in the past (landscaping) with 18 employees and 5 crew leaders and 2 managers underneath me and if someone (customer or employee) needed to reach me, they had to contact a crew leader first, then the crew leader would refer to a manager if necessary and then it would be the manager's job to refer them to me. Because of this, I had about 20 customers and 5 employees per month (average) requesting to see me. How many solved their problems without needing to see me? 100%! The reason for this? CEO has enough on his plate.

I'm not saying that your business proposal can be done through an employee, manager, or CEO as I don't know. But I recommend letting the employees refer you to him, if this is the case, you might get a better response.

This kind of reminds me of Basic Training - funny story - I went to my 1st SGT with an issue before consulting my drill sgt. lol, mistake! I had to go in the gas chamber a second time. Then 50 pushups after I got out without a chance of recuperation.

Hi Ray,
I have taken a look at your site in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari and the text at the bottom appears to look the same in all three browsers. Can you take a screen shot and post it here of what you are seeing, also let me know what browser and browser version you are using.

Thanks,
Emmy

Hi Ray,
Thanks for adding those screen shots. Those look to be aligned well to me, do you feel that they are not?

I think he's referring to the white space below in IE8... the bottom of the menu doesn't align with the bottom of his side bar. You see that?

Hey Ray,

Are you talking about the White Space below the bottom menu in IE?

If you are - that's just the way firefox browsers and internet explorer adds spaces. They appear to add spaces of different size.

However Ray,

I am looking at it in my Internet Explorer 8 and the only white space I see is where your side bar has a lighter colored border. By adding that border on the bottom menu it would fix the problem in my browser. My browser doesn't show as big of a white space as in your browser. Only the small gap where no border is in the bottom menu.

actually, there COULD be a perfectly good explanation. A user's font can be customized and doing so will intern move your text up, also moving widgets such as your bottom menu bar up, unaligning it. To avoid this, you need to figure out a way to make your bottom menu and side bar in the same widget and make it so that regardless of the text above, it'll remain still, maybe an employee can help you with this.
