    Joomla spacing help...

    Hi all.

    This is the first time I've come across a problem I just can't get my head round. The spacing on some of the pages on a new site I've built based on eg_green template is screwy - the articles are overlapping the right hand module column, and even in that column, some elements have drifted outside my 1000px site width (see calendar module). I've even used Firebug to try and track down the css element I need to change, but to no avail.

    Would some wonderful genius please cast their eyes over http://www.willenhallcommunity.coventry.sch.uk and give me a hint on how to correct it?

    Many thanks!

    Majik

    Hi Majik,

    This is a bit of a hack to fix your problem. Ive only tested this using firebug on your home page, it may change other stuff on other pages.

    You need to add a width to table.contentpaneopen. (template_css.css line 511) This will solve the text overlapping the sidebar, but not you attendance image thingy, which needs to be re-sized to 655px.
    Code:
    table.contentpaneopen{
    width:655px;
    }
    The calendar seems to be affected by the width and margin set in div.moduletable table (template_css.css line 322). Removing those corrects the table width and header.

    Again YMMV with these, let me know if you need any other help

    Jamie

    Thanks so much for taking a look at this Jamie - the calendar adjustment worked perfectly! The text overlap didn't though Blast. (Also, you come from my old stomping ground - I was a Balsall Common Primary child, and my brother went to Heart of England )

    Update - I'm an idiot. I've put the code in the correct place now and it's lining up lovely. The only remaining problem is the images, which are indeed resizes in the article, displaying too big on some browsers. Curses...

    Well, I'm 35 now so you can work it out from there Mr Buckle was the headteacher during my time, if that helps!

    Any idea on the image sizes? It's totally bizarre...
