This website displays fine on the desktop but on the iPhone it is pushed to the left hand side. See attached screenshots. Notice the drop shadow under the banner image? It does not extend all the way across. Also notice the expanding divs and the rest of the page is also pushed to the left.

Any solutions on how to fix this? This is just one of a few of my sites doing this. I'm working on converting them all to be responsive but I need to fix this problem for now.

There are some issues you need to solve first - the page does validate but I get this in the console


The value "1425px;" for key "width" was truncated to its numeric prefix. www.ginacaters.com/:9

Error parsing a meta element's content: ';' is not a valid key-value pair separator. Please use ',' instead. www.ginacaters.com/:9

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ILLEGAL (index):31

SyntaxError: Invalid character '\u8203'

Well you tell me what console you are referring to so I may also check the errors?

Fixing the validation errors was not the problem. After further research I found that I needed to use viewport meta tag and set it to the widest element on the page:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, user-scalable=no">

In my case it was:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=1425px;" />
