Hi folks, I have been making a new website for a project I'm working on and I've hit a snag. Whenever I add a link to one of my buttons or type any text into my main content box the whole thing splits apart and ruins the design I made.

Pics below.

The answer is simple, don't use tables for design.

Alright thanks for the reply, so tables are my problem then. I'm still new to Dreamweaver so my next question is how do I get around this problem, remove the tables? (Not even sure if I have any!) Any advice would be great.

Hi

Read some of the stuff here...

It kind of explains why you are heading down the wrong path and there is a link to CSS 'from the top'. Read some of the CSS articles here as well.
