My website displays differently in Internet Explorer, Chrome and FireFox. When I built the site I was using Chrome but when I check my site in IE and FF the layout is distorted, images are not displaying and the text vary in size. Anyone know how to fix this so that the website is displayed the same across all browsers? Thanks in advance!

I am surprised you were able to build using Chrome....Firefox really is best for using the Yola site builder....One of the big issues with building a site ( everyone has this problem) is making your site look good and function properly in all browsers.Everyone's site looks a little different in different browsers.Although I do not like IE most people still use it and IE should be your first concern.When I make changes to my site I always take a look at it in IE,Firefox and Chrome. Sometimes I have to go back and tweak a few things to make it acceptable in each.For example I use rounded borders around some of my text...In Firefox it looks great but in IE and Chrome I lose the corner radius and live with the borders being a rectangle in the other browsers.

Please can someone tell me why when I edit my site, it looks brilliant on my computer. Then I get other people to check it or I pop onto the site at work and the website is all out of alignment, and far too big for the page? I use Firefox at home, Chrome and IE at work. Firefox it looks really nice but that is all.
I don't understand the text above, I really need help - please can someone guide me, I am not computer savvy. Thanks

Thanks to everyone who has tried to help me. I have no idea why but my computer at work, my sisters at her work, the computer in the shop where my product is displayed, show the website all huge and out of alignment. I am sick of it because there does not seem to be a way to change it. I am tempted to close it down

Do you have your browser set at 100% ? If it is set higher sites will do as yours....It still looks fine to me on all browsers...I just checked again.

Hiya, I am sorry I have no idea what the others are set at. I tried to show the shop owner my site this week and it came up all huge. I knew that I could CTL - and bring it back into alignment but she did not and it looked awful. When I made it smaller, the writing was tiny.

Hi Susan
I am able to replicate your problem by lowering my screen resolution, yours may be set to low, I don't know what OS you are using but the setting will be in your control panel, in Windows 7 its under Appearance and Personalization.
Make sure your resolution is set to 'Recommended'

Susan, please say you're up & going smooth now without problems and that you were in fact doing something wrong, and it's not another yola flaw?! If so, then its a MAJOR flaw. I just researched 4 other site /builders/hosters, but it was not a problem. Maybe there's something you did wrong Susan. For my sake, I'm hoping so & hoping you get help soon, if you haven't already received it. I thought I was finally done with all the problems &/or research for a 'go-around on yola". I think I've spent more time doing that than I have time actually creating my site.

Hi Melinda

Thank you for doing your research. Yola site templates are tested in all major browsers and while there may be minor differences in how browsers render certain elements, these variations should be within acceptable limits and the template should always display attractively and correctly.

However, once a user starts adding content from third party sources we are not able to guarantee results. For example bad code, or text copied and pasted from MS Word can result in display issues that our outside of our control.

Like KanThaiDecor, I have checked Susan's sites in multiple browsers and was not able to detect any display or alignment problems. We therefore need her to get back to us to let us know if this is still an issue, and perhaps provide screenshots of what she is seeing so that we can investigate further.

Good, so its something corrupt from elsewhere then. I researched & found no problem. But wondering how to check my site on various browsers before I announce to others that I'm open? Just open up various ones & look? Can I do this prior to publishing?

Hi Melinda
Various browsers will display things in different ways, that's just how it is, you should download the major browsers and check your site in each one after any edits, I'm using Firefox as my default browser but have IE and Chrome installed just for this purpose, while in IE press the F12 key and you can also check your site in older versions.
A happy medium is sometimes all you can achieve.

Thanks, David:) I use Chrome when working on my site & have an ole trusty IE shortcut saved on my desktop, but never use it. My 2004 pc wouldn't hold another pic & blew up. lol! I just got a Dell XPS Studio with 1TB, Windows 7, AMD Vision Black, 6 core processor, *Yola website*, and a patridge in a pear tree;) But no clue what the bulk of all of that means. lol! So, is a Firefox browser best in your opinion? I'm soooo behind it ain't funny. But catching up very quickly thanks to all yall:) Thank you for mentioning downloading various browsers. Now, I know that's all that's meant by looking at your website in different forms:) Gonna go get a firefox doo-hickey, later:)

In my opinion Firefox is the best browser for me, its a personal choice for you to decide.

Hi Susan
Your banner is central when viewed in Firefox and IE9, it looks like your using an older version of IE, try updating to 9 and check then. I know Yola have recently had left/centre align problems so this could be the leftovers from that.
