Well in my attempt to get the center box centered correctly I have borked everything and can't seem to fix it.

I am sure it is something really easy, but I am super new to html and really don't understand the CSS thing.

What got me to frist try and "fix" things was the center box did not seem truly centered to me, i.e. the distance between the left side boxes and the center was alot smallther then the right side boxes and the center even though both side boxes were the same size. I tried the whole align center thing but that is how it was orgianily I am at a total loss since now I have messed around with it and can't fix it.

here is a link to the site

If anyone could help I would serisouly be grateful.

Thank you in advance.

I see a couple of things you can fix, but I can't tell everything that you changed.
  • Set your page width to 98%

    Control Panel > Style & Colors > Page Style > Page Body > Content Area Width: 98%

  • I'm not completely sure if this is where you need to make this change, but it's worth a try.

    Control Panel > Site Pages > Home: Display Options

    Left Pane Width: 200px
    Center Pane Width: (leave blank)
    Right Pane Width: 200px

    Click [Save]

    Do this for each page on your site (if you changed it before)
Hopefully that will fix your page.

I am still confused. I can get it to look right on FIREFOX at home but when I look at the page from work using Explorer it is all off.

After using your suggestions, it is now messing me up. I am not sure how it looks from friefox since I am at work, but from explorer the left side is bigger then the right side, the middle look like it is centered but the right side has a huge gap between the middle section and the right seciton. I have no idea how to fix this for explorer veiwers. or is it even worth trying to fix it for them since they shold be using firefox anyways? lol


Thank you very much for your help so far though.

OK I found the problem...

Control Panel > Style & Colors > Content Containers:

Left.... change table width from "150%" to "100%"
Center... change table width from "80%" to "100%"
Right... change table width from "175%" to "100%"

That should fix it... it seems Firefox resets these variables to 100% automatically whereas Internet Explorer does not.
