    Hi guys, i am trying to get 3 text boxes next to each other on the main page, but it's driving me crazy. for example:

    Box 1______Box 2_______Box 3
    some text___some text___some text
    some text___some text___some text
    some text___some text___some text
    some text___some text___some text

    Had to use underscores instead of spaces

    i want to do it without tables if possible, iv'e heard google doesn't like tables to much.

    Thanks in advance!
    - Mitch

    Have you tried forums that specialise in CSS?
    Such as http://csscreator.com/forum

    Thanks will ask around as well, wasn't sure if there was a plugin that would help of if someone on here had dealt with this before.

    Edit:

    I would like a layout similar to the page on this site

    Yes, you can do that -- it's a common layout method, generally using the "float" attribute in the CSS code -- this is a good CSS reference on it:

    This thread deals with the same question:

    That site is coded using tables, but as you noted above, in general that's no longer considered a good way to code layouts, except for tabular data.

    Thanks! i'm sure i can work it out from w3schools help, thanks for pointing me there! i'll have to brush-up on my CSS Skills, CSS seems the way forward with this one.

    You guys are awesome on here, thanks again.
