    Hi all,

    Perhaps someone has an idea where to be to fix this problem as in this case my html and css knowledge is lacking in debugging this. I just finished up editing the review markup, my friend was adding text and in the end the markup of the pages was messed up. Ive been messing with some core css files, specifically from the we-review plugin (/site/style.css) and my theme main css file, which is not that the way but i didnt change anything critical there, i knew what i was doing.

    Changing theme files is never a good idea - your changes will be overwritten when the theme is updated. Instead use a child theme or custom CSS.

    Have you used the validator to track down errors?

    yeah i just pulled it through but i just changed like 3 lines that could have made it this way. On the 2 pages you see everything going out of their border and more important: the text goes over each other, and it seems that this is the only problem.., somehow the test does not seperate but clusters togheter. I believe i changed something under col1,col2,col3,col4 untill col8 {
    This might have done it.

    I was hoping someone notices the problem so i dont have to go back all the way.

    Plus i dont understand why text from all the way down below the page, is going through the nav and header in the top.

    Thank you for your quick respond

    Looks like there are some significant mark-up errors:


    Try deactivating your plugins.

    Or reinstall the theme - if you've changed them, that will restore the unchanged versions.

    Do be aware that reinstalling the theme WILL erase any changes you've made - hence why a child theme or Custom CSS is the better way to make changes.

    You could also use a file comparison program to find the changes you've made -

    Hey Yogi,

    Deactivating and activating plugins, and reinstalling the theme didnt do it. Im guessing the position has to be changed to display the page text chronolically again, you really don't have a clue on how we could edit the css to get it right? If not, i will really delete everything and reinstall.

    Thanks anyway!
