    The issue I'm am having is that there is a standard text on my pages that is not edit-able. it stays on all pages and deleting and making a new page does not clear it. I have restarted browser and deleted temp files. How do I remove the text please?

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to change the concert date in a text box on the homepage for www.azizamiller.com. Two things happen when I click on the box: the box elongates and then I'm unable to actually highlight the text in the box in order to change the date. This wasn't a problem a week ago so I'm not sure what's wrong. . I've attached a screen capture so you can see.

    Hi, I'm including some screenshot.  When I go to edit text, I can't edit it. I try to select the option, but it doesn't work. The site is www.WLGeneralsHockey.com

      Thanks for contacting us. I apologize for the inconvenience.

      I have visited your site's editor.

      At the moment, the text box and the slideshow underneath it are located in two different boxes, that are one inside the other. This is preventing you from editing the text box.

      The easiest way to fix the issue would be to delete the boxes. Please make sure to first drag the slideshow out of its box, so it won't get deleted along with it. 

      Then, re-arrange the title and the slideshow, and add a new box if needed.

      Should you require any further help, don't hesitate to contact us again!

    I am having problems editing text.  In the editor, I double click on the text I want to edit, but then the text box becomes very large and actually doesn't allow me to edit any text. I have some screenshots of it. Can anyone help? Is this a bug with the editor?

    I want to display some boxed text in *two* columns, just to be easier on viewer's eyes, but am having no luck finding how to do this. Can you direct me?    Thanks

      You can simply add two text boxes, and snap them together so they are aligned.


      If I have misunderstood you or if this does not help you achieve your goal, could you please elaborate?

    When I opened my editor to begin finalizing my site today, a random text box showed up on all pages. I tried to delete it, but am unable to select it. I have moved every item on the page to the back. I have created a new page with no content and am still unable to select it. It is an item that has the "show on every page" box checked because it shows up on every page. I have tried using different browsers. logging out and re-logging in. Clearly I do not want the "I'm a little paragraph" description on the top of the page for every page on my brand new website. Please help!!!

    I too was having issues with Justifying my text within the text box. It is entirely stupid and unprofessional to have an editing tool malfunction due to a zoom level on the browser used to run and edit your site. I zoomed out to just 90% and could not use the Justify text option. I had to reset the zoom to 100% to fix the issue. The zoom level of the browser should have no effect on the usability of any tool or editing period. Very frustrating and disappointing.

      Within a site editor browser zoom is a huge factor. The editor cannot know how you intend your site to be. Always edit in 100% zoom. Visiting the site is a different matter and indeed we agree that when visiting the site should function nominally with different levels of zoom.

    How do I remove the line from crossing through my text?  I edited the text and instead of the border box breaking, it crossed out my text.
