XF 1.4 HTML Style Question


Active member
Hello Gang,

I have a HTML question. I did this little layout for an "about us page" I think I have it to where I want it but I noticed a small issue with how it looks on my phone. I'm floating the image but at the reduced size of mobile the text drop a line below the image. Is there a way to keep the text contained and still float the image using just HTML? Below is the code and a few a images of what is happening on my mobile browsers. I'm very new to coding.

Many thanks!


<div class="aboutus_welcome"; style="padding: 20px">

I just took a look, and to be honest....you should fix the overall responsiveness of your site before doing anything else (notice the scrollbar at the bottom in my image)...

It looks like you have the default xf responsive settings disabled so the minimum browser width you are showing is 976px.
..also what you show there in the images is not what I see when viewing your site, are you showing a different style in your images than are available publicly?

Anyways, I like the image there...gotta love a nice clown showing it's hosting skills

Thank you @EQnoble.

I believe I turned off the responsive design for a reason. It's been a while but I think it was because I'm using a portal for the home page and is was an issue for mobile. If I remember correctly, if left on the left, center and right column/sidebar are rendered in one consecutive column, so you have to scroll all the way down the page just to see the right sidebar (mobile only).

The images I used in my above post where taken on my phone not my desktop browser. Also there is only one style being used. The picture you uploaded in you post looks correct to me. I'm not noticing any difference in image styles. As for the "minimum browser width" do you feel people view webpages smaller than the 976px on a desktop browser normally? It never crossed my mine.

Here is an image of the about us page on my desktop browser (firefox). I would like the text to stay right of the image regardless to the window size like you see below. Thanks for your notes! (y)
