The main page is expanding to far in index.php. You have probably deleted an end tag for a </table> or </tr> or </td>. This is the stock code for the default page to the end of file, in index.php. You'll find it at the bottom so compare it to yours and see if you are missing anything.

Also I'd like to know what you guys think of the site in general

 

Hi Kube60 -

 

Site looks good so far!

 

I don't envy you trying to track down the missing html tag. When using tables, it's helpful to use indentation. Try to space the opening (<table>, <tr>, <td>) tags the same number of spaces from the left as their associated closing (</table>, </tr>, </td>) tag.

 

For example:

<table>
           <tr>
                     <td>
                     </td>
                     <td>
                                 <tr>
                                 </tr>
                      </td>
           </tr>
</table

Thanks for that. Right now I'm trying to break everything down line by line but I still can't find the problem. Perhaps someone who is a little more fluent in computer can spot the problem because I'm an idiot. I can feel my brain turning to much right now. lol

 

Anyway, here's the code.

 

 

I can't see anything in index.php that I think would cause this so it must be something that is being output by index.php. When I checked the output source code, the only thing I noticed that didn't look right was your TEXT_MAIN message. This is the output from TEXT_MAIN with the, apparent, error highlighted:

 

<td class="main"></td></tr></table>Welcome to our new site. Please excuse our dust. In the coming weeks we will be adding more items and new features to our site so check back often.<b><b></td>

 

The two <b> tags wouldn't affect anything, but they aren't doing anything so no need for them. The obvious error is the erroneous </td></tr></table> tags, which could do strange things to the output. If you switch languages, the error appears to go so that looks like where it is coming from

 

Post the TEXT_MAIN definition from your includes/languages/english/index.php I think that is where we'll find the problem.

I think you're right. Now that I look at it I think that's actually the page I modified to get rid of the languages box. I'm posting the whole code because I don't see a TEXT_MAIN definition.

If you can, use firefox with the web developer add-on and turn on some of the options.

Also give some of your tables a border then you'll be able to spot problems easier.

 

and personally I don't like the site, too much red, but that's just me.

Okay. I almost had my site exactly how I wanted it. The last thing I did was I deleted the languages box. Now on my index page the right column has moved to below the left. It seems to only occur on the index page. Does anyone know how to fix this? I would hate to have to start all over because of one mistake. Especially at this point. the site is Heres the link with the problem Please help me

 

 

Yep, way too much red. I had trouble reading the yellow on black too. Nice otherwise though. Just thought you should know, it hurt my eyes, literally. Good luck!
