Hey guys,
Trying to do some website work on my desktop version of sitebuilder which is crashing every few minutes or so. Suggestions?
http://www.noraherold.com/

I also have a completely unrelated question about website width and centering my content. I redesigned my site recently on a widescreen and set the page width to 2000 (yeah, I know, too big). I found out it was too big when my monitor crapped out on me and I plugged in an older, smaller one and found I had to scroll left and right to see my whole site
EEEK!

So, is 1000 the current recommended width? I've been playing with it at 1000 but my content is not centered on the page when I preview on my widescreen monitor. (which magically works again).
Also, considering sitebuilder crashed 5 times in 30 minutes I'm a bit cranky as I try to resolve this.

Thank you

Hi Nora


Your site looks good for the most part. Looks like you have it not centered it but have maybe chosen the shift right option?

Susan can explain it better than me!

Sure Martin, put me in the hot seat!  :)

Nora 960 to 1020 seems to be the norm these days. You said you switched to 1000, but I'm still seeing it as 2000.
Once you get the size down and all the elements moved within that space see if the page is still off center and post back.

HAHAHA Goodnight old friend. Hope life is good for you!

I will never forget what you did for me back in the "old days".

P.S.  The desktop builder is a hungry beast so try not to run any other programs when you are using it and it also helps to go slow - my biggest mistake with it was always going too fast and making it's little brain jam up.

Below is a picture of where the center button is, but if you have elements that exceed whatever page width you select it will change in order to accommodate the wider image and thus throws off the centering.

Thank you, both.
Susan, I was just playing on one page with the 1000 width.
I did not publish anything yet due to sitebuilder crashing
