Hi all,

I tried to add a table in the "About me" section of my profile (http://www.proz.com/profile/408) and for some reasons all of a sudden I have lots of empty space and the table is moved to the bottom of page.

I tested the page in 3 browsers (Opera, Firefox and IE) and it has the same display in all 3 of them, so this problem is "browser-independent", so to speak (my default browser is Opera).

When I use simple numbered lists everything looks fine.

Is this normal? Are there any limits to what type of content you can add? Other words, numbered/un-numbered lists are fine, tables are not?

Any help or hint will be much appreciated!

Regards,
Michael

Support Ticket? Jan 18, 2007

Hi Michael,

Have you tried submitting a support ticket? They might be able to help you.

By the way, I had a look at your profile and couldn't see your "about me" section. Is this deliberate?

All the best,

Kathryn

Thanks for the suggestion, I just did that. Hope they will be able to clear that problem.

No, of course not. But then it is getting really weird. By "about me" section I mean block that immediately follows the "Website, CV" row. I logged off and opened my profile in IE and I can see it just fine. Admittedly, it looks ugly but is visible....


All the best,
Kathryn


Thanks Kathryn...

Best regards,
Michael

I had the same problem... Jan 18, 2007

I had the same problem while completing the Portfolio tab (I don't use tha standard Portfolio space but my own, customized table).

It helped when I deleted all the line breaks between html tags (found the solution somewhere in ProZ.com forums), e.g. instead of:





try this:

 

Hope that helps

Joanna

">" is a greater-than sign.

So, is is ""="

Right. Line breaks in html are carried into the profile.

Works for me anyhow, I can see your table and there's no unwanted space. Glad you got it sorted.

Thanks, Henry. Yes, I am the guy who was asking to reduce his gigantic picture sent for upload to the profile. I was a real dummy then ..:).

Again, thanks a lot to everyone for your help!

Best regards,
Michael
