View Full Version : Image over lapping?

07-11-2008, 11:03 AM
Hi I have built a site for someone & it all looks fine to me & most other people but there are a few that are seeing over lapping of images & text in both IE & Mozilla. I cannot see this but have some screen shots (below) that were sent to me, I have tried everything I can think of but no luck.
Can anyone tell me how I can fix this?
This is my first site build & I am gutted that I cannot fix this please help me.

The link to the site is http://www.rescuehelpersunite.co.uk/

Hi, must admit i cant see it at my end! But it may have something to do with their browsers.
One thing you can try is placing each element in a table. So if you make a table for the area of that page showing 1 column & about 8 rows, then enter text, image, text, image & so on down the rows. It should keep them apart & stop the overlapping.

Thanks, I did try to put it all in a table but couldn't insert an image, they just kept coming up in a new "image box" outside of the table. I will go & try again.........

The screen shot you show is how it is showing up on IE and I see it. It looks like there is a lot of empty space at end of page. I hope you figure it out soon. Here is the actual link to that page...

Good Luck

I have another member to add to the page that's why there is extra space, the images were over lapping even when the page was shorter.
Will try again without the extra space, you never know.............

I keep getting this feeling that the last </div> on that page's html could be part of the problem...couldn't find the <div> that this one closes.

Sometimes it is easier to start over with a page (time and patience wise), than it is to fix things.

It's looking ok to me on IE7

Thank you & yes I am going to start over & I think I've worked out how to do it in table, I'll come back later to see if I managed to do it!

Thanks again guys

Looks fine at my end.

Still looks ok to me, like it did before.

Thanks just waiting & hoping Karen comes back to take a look as she could see the over lapping before.
If I can sort this out I will be able to move on to the other glitches, it might be giving me one heck of a headache but I'm loving it & having a whale of a time.

Tables! I managed to work out how to get images in to tables.

Now, apparently some people are seeing the menu off centre & you can't sign the guestbook without having to click in the box below NAME & then pressing tab to get into the NAME box, I would rather get rid of the guestbook...........but it's not my site.

Have mercy! I would have never noticed the menu being off if you had not said something...someone's got a keen eye...or something...
