Lost in Translation sorry to hear you are frustrated, this experience should be fun and exciting. Did you know you could drag the two-column layout into your page field? I have it on most of my pages, take a look at my index page where I have pictures on the right and text to the left...www.klouda.us. If you want someone to take a look at a published site make sure to leave your URL. Breathe! :-)

Hi Lost in Translation,

Sorry to hear you are frustrated, it can be a bit tricky at times. The green borders you see are only visible in the sitebuilder, try saving and previewing your page. As you would see there should be no green border. Can you send me the url of your site as well, for me to have a look at?

Hope this helps!

Hi Lost in Translation,

(Wow, clouda9 is hot today! thanks! :) I think I know what you may be talking about: you can't move the content areas around -- where your boxes land is pretty much a function of the template you've chosen.

If the template style does not allow for lots of "content area," you're going to be restricted on the size and layout of your widgets right from the get-go. Try another template (you can always go back to the original, no worries!) to see what I mean. Try FrozenAge2 -- I think it's on the first page of the template choices.

Hint: in general -- if you utilize a template with top navigation menu (as opposed to right or left navigation menu ) you will automatically have a LOT more content area, and your content will be balanced on the page.

clouda9 has a great suggestion about using a 2 column layout widget. Just be aware that once you add a 2 column layout widget to your page, you must also drop a text widget and / or image widget into each side of the 2 columns, or else you won't be able to do anything.

And definitely -- if you have more questions -- include your URL so that we can go to your website and see what's going on for you (a picture IS worth a thousand words.... :)

Good Luck, and let us know how everything works out!
