Hi there,

I've inherited this site and the web designer is not reachable. As you can see on the home page, the "GO" button on "About Learning Wonderland" and "Our Programs" are not aligned into their respective circles. You can see that "Photos" and "Enrol Now" have the GO buttons in the circles, which is how it should be.

Please help!! :D

Site is http://learningwonderland.com.au

Thanks.

Search for this part:

<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:8px 80px 0 0">
<a href="about_us.htm">GO</a>
</div>
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:8px 0 0 322px">
<a href="our_programs.htm">GO</a>
</div>

Open in new window

and replace it with this:
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:8px 80px 0 335px">
<a href="about_us.htm">GO</a>
</div>
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:-20px 0 0 295px">
<a href="our_programs.htm">GO</a>
</div>

Open in new window

It is all about "margin properties". You need to play with and make some changes to adjust the right value.  For more information you can see this link:

Hello thanasikala,

Find the below code:

<div class="categoryDivision">
<a href="about_us.htm"><div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:48px 0 140px 87px">About Learning Wonderland</div></a>
<a href="about_us.htm"><div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:35px 128px 140px 118px">Our Programs</div></a>
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:8px 80px 0 0"><a href="about_us.htm">GO</a></div>
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:8px 0 0 322px"><a href="our_programs.htm">GO</a></div>
</div>

Open in new window



And replace it the below one:

<div class="categoryDivision">
<a href="about_us.htm"><div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:48px 0 140px 87px">About Learning Wonderland</div></a>		
<div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:202px 0 0 -20px"><a href="about_us.htm">GO</a></div>
<a href="about_us.htm"><div class="homeMidleFont" style="margin:35px 128px 140px 118px">Our Programs</div></a>

Yes, I think it is the margins, finding it so hard to get them right though :/

I tried both your suggestions but it's way out. Check out the page now, I have Edwin's changes.

Excellent, they re lining up now!!! However the side menu on the right which has Useful Links, Employment etc has disappeared. It can be seen on all other pages except Home/Index.

Open "wonderland.css" and find "col-main",  update width 782px to 720px and add margin-left:21px;
