I just have a question about positioning inside containers. I have been following the ‘building of webflow.com’ video as I am learning, and have almost finished the main page, but have run into two problems, both related to lining up new elements on the page. I haven’t included any links to the site at this point, but can do so if needed.
One example is that I would create a section for the signup bar, then a container within it, and then a heading inside the container. Everything is fine until that point. Then if I try to add another text box to that container, I can’t get it to go under the heading. If I hover the text box over the container I can see the blue line on the left of my heading, or the right, but never on the top or bottom. So instead of nicely sitting underneath the heading, the new text box, or form block etc will be beside it and everything is all out of alignment.
I had similar troubles with the blue ‘Sign Up’ button at the top of the page (Navbar). It is meant to go next to the ‘Log In’ NavLink, but while on the video it just slots in nicely to the right of that NavLink, mine ends up in some strange alignment that looks nothing like what happens in the video, and I eventually just had to skip that part of it.
On some containers, like the one I have in the middle of the page, I seem to be able to add text boxes or other elements on the top or bottom of other headings, so I have no idea what the difference is. Interestingly, in that case when I hover the new element over the container, I see the top and bottom blue bars, but not the left or right options. I’m not sure if there is some alteration I need to make to the containers, but I couldn’t pick anything different being done in the video.
I am using Firefox as a browser, but the same happens on Chrome.
Just one more question while I am here… hopefully an easy one. If I take the underline off a text link (using text decoration), the underline always comes back as it doesn’t save. Anyone else had this issue?
Thanks very much for your time!
Here is the site (below).
I just removed some of the custom text and pictures I had so it looks terrible, but it was looking very similar to the proper website prior that that!
