Hi, I am only able to float the content of text columns to the right for 1 page (called "local food box") but not for the other pages. I've tried several different CSS codes but nothing is consistently shifting the content over to the right. The code that seems to work for the "local food box" page is .entry_content { float: right; } This is the site:

Hey Virginie, Did you try adding a width (in the CSS) to that element or the parent element?

Hi Kate, Thanks for your help, this has helped for all pages except my "Contact" (

Do you have any other content on that page or is it not showing up because of the CSS?

At the moment the text column appears to be floating to the right. Do you want it to float left instead (as in the Local Food Box page)?

Hi, Yes, I would like it to look just like the Local Food Box, the About and the Road Stand pages. What is puzzling me is that all pages seem to be responding well to this code: .entry_content { width: 400px; float: right; } Except for the contact page.

What other custom CSS have you added to your site (in both Custom CSS and base.css, if possible)?
