On the second page of my site which is divided into two columns the left hand side column will not accept any widgets, be they photo, dividing line or text except right at the very top of the page or right at the very bottom. Any ideas?

Hello,

Try deleting the column and putting another one in. Sometimes the sitebuilder has little bugs like these and you gotta' kick it in the butt to work. :)

Hope this helps - let me know if it doesn't!

Did it work? I got a star and this question is marked as answered, so I'm assuming 'yes'. If it didn't, let me know and I'll help you out some more.

Don't think you got my reply Michael. The problem is with doing as you suggested which does make sense is that I have loaded the whole page with photo's and text and tried to work round the glitch but it has made the page look rather uneven. Would it be better to create a new page I am thinking and then put in the columns again and copy and paste everything over. Don't know I can do it otherwise but if you have any ideas please let me know. Thanks.

Hello,

I'm trying to understand what the problem is - does it look anything like this:

Hello Jill,

It sounds like your page could have some invalid coding which may be causing the trouble you're having. Do you mind sharing your URL and the page so that I can have a closer look at this?

Hi Sanja - yes please do look at the site - the problem is on the second page. Although the left hand column on the page accepted a picture right at the top and right at the very bottom there is no way it would let me put any other widget in the middle. I just extended my text box basically and wrote loads in the left hand column as it wouldn't accept anything else, but I would have preferred to balance it out a bit more - and I just wondered if it was something I was doing wrong as this is the first site I have ever tried to build and I am not familiar with the widget technology. My site is www.sheddinglightonthematter.co.uk and the problem is on the second page. Many thanks. Jill

Hi Jill,

I think I might have fixed this up but not 100% sure. Please can you give this a try and let me know how this is now working for you?
