    Hi, I am trying to insert an image into the left column of my site but it appears in the centre instead. You can see what I mean with the technorati link here http://www.helengraves.co.uk

    Any ideas why this might happen? Thanks.

    Are you talking about the bean salad image? Site looks ok in IE7 and FF.

    Hi, thanks for replying. I use FF and the site looks fine, it is just that the technorati link is supposed to be in the left sidebar, not in the centre column. When I try to add buttons, badges etc to the left sidebar they jump up to the top of the centre column. I am missing something with the html but I don't know what it is.

    For that problem this div

    </div>
    <a href="http://technorati.com/faves?sub=addfavbtn&amp;add=http://helengraves.co.uk">
    <img src="http://static.technorati.com/pix/fave/btn-fave2.png" alt="Add to Technorati Favorites" /></a>

    needs to be after the technorati.

    You have quite a few code problems that could be cleared up by validating.

    Ah I see, thank you. I will remember this when I try to add other buttons in. I quite like the technorati button up there you see. Thanks also for the tip about my incompetent html. I just need to find the time to correct it now!

    There is one last thing if you wouldn't mind helping me out again?

    When I add in new buttons to the sidebar now, they appear right next to each other, there is no space between them at all which doesn't look great. How do I get a gap between each one?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    If you are using a text widget to insert them you can put a non-breaking space between each &nbsp;

    Thanks again for your help. I tried it and it worked although I have probably cowboyed it (or cowgirled ;-)). It's a steep learning curve this website business. Now I just need to sort out the rest of my dodgy code!

    Thanks again, much appreciated.

    The space was for horizontal. For verticle use a
    .

    Please mark this resolved when you get a chance.
