Unordered list is causing odd "2-column" behavior (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I've created a simple list using WordPress, but it is causing my text to become two-columns instead of one. Before I added the list, everything looked fine. As soon as I added the list, the text took on a two-column look to it. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I've tried using breaks before the list to see if that would help, but it didn't.

    Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this.

    It would help greatly if you would post the ul code.

    cause by a style which floats all paragraphs in the post content to the left; in style.css (line 2708);

    .blog_post_content p
    {
    float: left;
    
    }

    change to:

    .blog_post_content p, .blog_post_content ul
    {
    float: left;
    
    }

    I had already checked the code and it looks fine. But here it is:

    <strong>Hosted VoIP</strong>
    
    Hosted VoIP has really come a long way over the years. New advancements in the technology are made every day, and this is really getting people excited. And for good reason—Businesses of all sizes can truly have a state-of-the-art phone system without ever investing a single penny in any telephone equipment. In a nutshell, the VoIP provider hosts all the equipment, servers, and services, and the customer accesses the equipment via the Internet. This is known as cloud technology, and the system can work with your existing telephone service or replace it entirely.

    <strong>Benefits of Hosted VoIP</strong>
    
    Besides all the features that come with VoIP technology, hosted VoIP has a large number of benefits that are not available with traditional telephone service:
    <ul>
    	<li>Cost savings – With a hosted VoIP system, the customer experiences savings both initially and long-term.  Since there’s no large upfront investments and nothing to maintain, cost savings are significant on the initial investment end. And since the provider operates and maintains the system at all times, cost savings can be even more significant over a period of time.
    100% Scalability – Because VoIP systems are virtual systems, they can expand and grow as your business grows, something traditional phone systems cannot easily do.</li>
    	<li>Ultimate flexibility – Nothing surpasses Hosted VoIP when it comes to mobility.  Companies with branch offices, outside sales force, and remote workers won’t miss a single business opportunity.  Calls are routed through the hosted VoIP provider to whichever number(s) have been provided.</li>
    	<li>Free on-net calling – Calls between your hosted-connected offices and remote workers are free.</li>
    	<li>User friendly – Easy-to-use web interfaces enable users to manage, monitor, and make changes to their account at any time. Specialized skills are not needed.</li>
    	<li>Big-business feel – The professional sounding telephone solution afforded by hosted VoIP systems can give even a small business a professional edge.  This is not possible with traditional phone systems.</li>
    	<li>Virtual Presence – Hosted VoIP, which allows you to get local virtual numbers, enables you to look like you’ve got a business in a particular city – when you really don’t.</li>
    	<li>Easy setup – Hosted VoIP can be set up quickly and easily. You can be up and running on a hosted VoIP system in a matter of days.</li>
    </ul>
    While hosted VoIP is exciting, it is important to realize that not all hosted VoIP providers are equal. In my next blog entry, I’ll be talking about how to actually go about selecting a good hosted VoIP provider.  By the time you’re through reading the article, you should be on safe footing as you go about selecting a hosted VoIP provider for your business.

    Hi WPyogi, I'm pretty sure the code is correct (at least on that page) because I've tried deleting everything around the bullet list and it still goes to the 2-column mode with just the bullet list in the page. If I remove the bullet list (and leave everything else), then everything looks fine.

    alchymyth,

    Is there anyway to try out your suggestion on the page itself (rather than put it in the CSS style sheet) - to see if it works. I don't typically work in the style sheets. I can then pass it on to the person in charge of this. I typically work in the single pages.

    Thanks,
    Robyn

    sure - try and use an inline style:

    <ul style="float:left;">

    Thanks, the inline style worked!
