Text going beyond boundaries

Recommended Posts




Your text is 'unformatted' which is causing the problem.


Here's what I can see in looking at your HTML:

Sitting down for long periods of time messes your back and even neck if you don’t stretch, and the nice back-lit screen messes up your vision if you are not careful.Since I have to do my work on the computer, I try the best that I can to stay off the computer and</div>

<div> weapon is my beloved HP100LX. It’s a 20 year old device that some still use faithfully… it runs good old DOS.I never really understood what the fuss</div>

You'll see that there are mystery <div> tags all over the place, with no classes or IDs letting PageLines or Wordpress style them.  Since they're unformatted divs, they're going to cause anything within them remain unformatted.


How did you place that text in there? Pasted from a word processor?


I'd suggest editing the content with the Text view tab active.  This will let you see all these unformatted divs.  Remove them all.  Switch to Visual Mode and format using the available options there.

It didn't occur to me to check the html, I was after all pasting text only....

Yes it's a cut and paste from a word processor, the culprit. I pasted the text in "dumb"

notepad to remove formatting and then into Wordpress. It's fixed, thanks for your insight and patience.
