    Default Help needed removing left column

    Hi there,

    A few months ago I created a site. The client has now requested that I remove the left side column. I'm experiancing a problem however. Everytime in my wysiwyg software I try and remove it, it messes up everything.

    I was hoping that one of you guys could take a quick look at the source of the page and identify the correct html bit which I need to remove/modify.

    Thanks your help in advance.
    Kind regards,
    v.singh

    it always a bad idea to use a WYSIWYG editor. especially for a professoinal application.
    thats bad form...

    open the page with notepad.
    press "ctrl + F"
    then paste this into the search feild.

    Code:
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="64" height="23">
                                  <tbody><tr>
    
                                      <td width="156" height="4"><img src="images/spacer_white.gif" height="2" width="154"></td>
                                    </tr>
                                    <tr>
                                      <td width="0" height="19">&nbsp;</td>
                                    </tr>
                                  </tbody></table>
    thats the code that give you the left column.
    i found this when i highlighted your column, and notices some white space near the top that was also highlighted. i right clicked on the white space, and mozzilla gave me an option to veiw the image.

    i just had to find that immage in your source to find the columb it was in.

    This has nothing to do with removing your left column (though what boxxertrumps posted should work...) You can use a FireFox extension called FireBug that allows you to highlight a section of a website and it will show that posrtion of HTML... It also shows errors in a page (and where to find the error in the document)

    Hi guys,

    After I remove that.. the white left side still remains. I'm guessing i'll have to make the middle tables wider correct?

    Thanks for your help.
