    Guys - I need some help. I've set up a build diary for my kit car build, and everything has been peachy so far. I've been using iWeb, and I've used the Darkroom template in v2.0.3

    The blog entry page has been modified slightly from the normal one - I've removed the picture from the top of the entry, as I post pics in the body text. To keep everything identical from entry to entry, I duplicate the last entry (cmd-d) and then change the title, content and date posted.

    The problem is, the text seems to 'creep' down the page on some entries. They all seem to be ok to here:

    http://www.greatoldone.co.uk/Site/Build_Diary/Entries/2006/8/5_Twinkle,_Twinkle,_Shiny_Valve....html

    But the from the next entry on

    http://www.greatoldone.co.uk/Site/B...f_Bolts,_Here’s_some_I_installed_earlier.html

    The title is touching the body text without the intervening gap. It looks fine in iWeb - this is only after publishing. It's really hacking me off - to the extent that I completely blitzed the site last night and republished everything. This seemed to work, but this afternoon the titles where slipping down to meat the text again.

    Any ideas? I really can't seem to figure this one out, because everything is the same.

    Ta

    So you know, none of your content shows up when JavaScript is disabled (as I do), which means search engines would be able to crawl the pages. All the content seems to be controlled by JavaScript, which makes me think you perhaps saved from iWeb in a different manner than you should have. Most iWeb sites I've looked at didn't have this issue. I don't use iWeb so not sure why this is happening, but could be related to your problem. I'll let the more iWeb knowledgeable put in their ideas for possible solutions.

    Thanks :)

    I'll check if there's anything in the prefrences for iWeb publishing when I get in from work

    I must admit all I did when setting the site up was click on the publish button to send it to .mac - I just assumed that what it spits out to create the pages was standard code.

    Ok, I've checked iWeb, and there does not seem to be any sort of option to publish with out javascript. So I'm stumped. :(

    No ideas at all?

    The only one I can come up with is to add some carriage returns to the offending entries, but that seems like a kludgy way of sorting it out - and it doesn't explain why the same layout is causing different behaviour on different pages.

    I think I've sorted out the problem - I've duplicated each of the offending entries, deleted the originals and republished. This seems to have sorted it out.
