View Full Version : words wrapping to new line

Newbie here. Using Dreamweaver 8.

I am doing one of my first pages and am having a problem with each word wrapping to a new line.

The conspiracy theory is a link to a different website. I just want to put some text after it but it keeps wrapping to the next line.

Matter of fact, one I didn't think of was when I made the links if I didn't put an underscore between the 2 words of the link, the scond word would wrap to the second line also.

Please read the link in my sig. There's no reason why DW would do that by default. But it's also impossible for us to determine why because you don't give us any info.

I did do a search on google and here and could not find a solution.

I thought it would be something simple I was just overlooking.

Here is the home page.


I assume you can view the source code.

ok, getting there soon. Now I know which page the problem is on. Can you please sepcify where on the page you're experiencing this problem you described in your first post?

I didn't leave the page in that condition. But it will do it anywhere. If I start typing anywhere on the menu side the second word will go to the next line. The third to the next line and so on. Like in the pic above in my first post you end up with a word per line.

Without seeing the code when this is happening, I have nothing to go on sorry. Anyone else experienced this?

Ok, I changed it so after channeling_reality there will be "very good detailed research". I saved it as wordwrap.html.

Because you are using tables, and have two columns with width's set.

The second column has a width of 265px, so if the content within this column is over 265px wide then it will move down a row because the column isn't auto expanding.

That doesn't seem right for 2 reasons. If a word goes to the next line there is room for more than one word on the line, but it still wraps. Also, if I make another table, the text will position fine within it.

My guess is it must be something with the format of the right table.

Is it possible I have one table with the right grey portion being a css style sheet?

Sould this have been made with a 2 cell table?
