HI Snowball

Ok the reason its being pushed off the edge is you have the div that browseProductDescription sits in set to 350x 32
but 350px is about eh full width including the image, title and price

Have a look at this page

http://www.oasis-skincare.co.uk/Ultra-Calming/View-all-products.html

The last product uses horizontal full width and the description sites nicely

<div style="width:100%;padding: 0px 3px 3px 3px;">
  <h2>
  <a style="font-size:16px; font-weight:bold;" href="<?php echo $product_flypage ?>"><?php echo $product_name ?></a>
  </h2>
    <div style="float:left;width:32%" >
    	<a href="<?php echo $product_flypage ?>">
          <?php echo ps_product::image_tag( $product_thumb_image, 'class="browseProductImage" border="0" title="'.$product_name.'" alt="'.$product_name .'"' ) ?>
       </a>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left;width:60%"><?php echo $product_s_desc ?><br />
      <a href="<?php echo $product_flypage ?>">[<?php echo $product_details ?>...]</a>
    </div>
  <br style="clear:both;" />
  <p><?php echo $product_price ?></p>
  <div style="float:left;width:60%">
      <?php echo $product_rating ?>
  </div>
  <div style="float:left;width:32%">
  </div>
  <br style="clear:both;" />
</div>

Open in new window


this is the code to generate that one

in virtuemart theme.css change  100% to 45%:

/** BROWSE PRODUCTS STYLES **/
.browseProductContainer {
      width:45%;
      padding: 3px 3px 3px 3px;
      vertical-align: top;
}

Your solution worked thanks Joomla_php but I figure this line here
.addtocart_form {

      white-space:normal;
}

worked better in the end just incase there would be more text
Thanks,
