View Full Version : Cannot Figure Out Why Two Pages Aren't Loading Same As Other Four

On my site: http://www.FinancialAidFiler.com - for some reason, the two links all the way to the right load up on the page a little bit further to the right than the other four links. It is really odd.

If you click the first four links, you'll see that they all align the same. They last two links only align with each other.

All of the pages consist of one graphic - and they are all 1100px wide. I cannot figure it out no matter what I do.

Can you guys please take a look?

Thanks.

In what browser and under what OS? As far as I can tell there is no such problem.

It is very odd. I am using Windows XP, and it happens in Firefox and Chrome. Yet, it doesn't occur in IE or on my tablet.

What are you using?

I have a laptop. It has a wide screen, but it's only 900px tall. As a result all of the pages on that site have a vertical scrollbar. But the Our Services page is only 944px tall and the Contact Us page is only 957px tall. On most desktop monitors there will be enough room for them with no vertical scrollbar. The pages are in quirks mode. In IE, a page in quirks mode will always have at least the track for a vertical scrollbar whether it needs to be scrolled or not. All other browsers will not show the track unless a scrollbar is needed. This gives the window about 16 to 20 px more width. Since the pages are centered, they will move over by half of that to the right. You can set the pages to always have a vertical scrollbar track by putting:


html {overflow-y: scroll}

in the stylesheet.

You, my friend, are a genius!

Now, I am a novice, so, where exactly do I need to add:

html {overflow-y: scroll}

Right now, I added space to the bottom of my graphics, and that worked, but I would love to add in that code you provided me with.

Now, the other thing I am looking to do is to have my "Thank You" page, after a web form submission close automatically after about 10 seconds. I tried some code already, but both of my attempts failed.

Add it here:


<style><!--
BODY{
CURSOR: url(cursor.cur);
}
-->
</style>


Like so:


<style><!--
html {overflow-y: scroll;}
BODY{
CURSOR: url(cursor.cur);
}
-->
</style>

Thank you, you freaking genius!!!

Any idea how I can make a pop-up screen completely close after about 10 seconds? Thank you.
