Table Alignment Issues In Twenty Eleven (12 posts)

    I'm building a website for a local guitar shop, and for each individual product page I'm trying to achieve a template in which there is a product photo on the left, with a 2 column table of specifications on the right.

    To do this I've tried to use a table within a table. The "outside" table is just a single row with two data cells, the left being the photograph, and the right including the specs table.

    In the visual editor everything is aligned perfectly as I've coded in all the correct alignment codes(valign="top" etc) and it all looks like this screenshot shows:

    However for some reason, the live page pushes the specs table down to the bottom of the photo. It's aligned horizontally, but shifted down a lot.

    I know someone has had a similar issue with a similar theme as discussed in this thread...(http://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-with-table-alignment-in-posts-for-twentyten-theme-1?replies=13)but the solution they've given is to change some coding in the stylesheet.

    Someone had previously setup this site and I'm now rebuilding on top of what they'd done a few years ago, and apparently everything is stored on the WordPress server, they didn't download everything properly so I don't have access to the stylesheet and CSS within buying the upgrade for full customization. Can anyone suggest a solution with some basic HTML coding perhaps??

    Tables are terrible for formatting anything other than tabular data.
    Download and install this Custom CSS Manager plugin and use its section of the dashboard to hold this;

    .entry-content td {
     float: left;
    }

    OK this is probably going to sound really stupid but...what do I do once I've downloaded the .zip folder? The readme says to upload it to the "/wp-content/plugin/" directory, where do I find that on the dashboard?

    Try reviewing Managing_Plugins.

    In the plugins section of the dashboard, you should be able to search for plugins.
    Regarding Esmi's link: http://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins#Finding_Plugins

    Then search for "Custom CSS Manager"

    I'm not sure why, but I don't have a plugins section on my dashboard...

    I guess you're just not allowed access to it for some reason?

    I'd guess so, any idea of how to rectify that?

    Do you have access to your website's files and folders?

    You have a wordpress.com site. I'm sorry but these forums are for self-hosted WordPress sites only. Please try asking your question on http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    Cheers esmi, I didn't know there was a different one! Yeah this one isn't self-hosted, the guy who set it up previously didn't really do it properly..
