When printing pages from my website, some of the content overlap (despite appearing fine when viewed on browser). For example, the page below, content of the middle graph overlaps with the graph itself when printed.

Hi Weimin7824,

I took a look at your site and don't see anything in the site that would be causing this. However, there is obviously something in your print program that is causing the text to overlap. Unfortunately we don't have the ability to troubleshoot it beyond what we can see in the SiteBuilder. If you have a lot of visitors that wish to print those pages, you might consider making pdf's with the content and allowing them to download/print that copy instead.

Mike,

Thanks for the feedback. On a related item, I notice the bottom bio section of this page (http://castle-avenue.com/Foreign-Buye...) appears differently depending on whether it's opened on a cell phone, Chrome, Explorer etc. On a Samsung phone, the bio at the bottom would overlap the last paragraph.

Kindly advise.

These things can be tricky. I just viewed that page of the site on a Samsung Droid Charge, and the content looked fine, no overlap. I also viewed it on a Google Nexus tablet with a newer version of the Android OS and it still looked fine. These issues become complicated because there are so many different operating systems and various versions of web browsers for each OS. One thing you can try doing is deleting the content off the bottom of the site, publishing the site, add the content back, and then republishing.

I you are seeing a lot of visitors from your site that are using smart phones and tablets, then you might consider creating a mobile version of the site.

Mike
