I honestly don't know what I did, but my homepage is messed up after putting a countdown clock on it. Please help me with the messurements as I seem to mess it even more when I try to change something.

Thanks so much!

If you ever see you Announcements blown out like this, the best thing to do is deactivate each of your Announcements 1 by 1, each time previwing your home page to see if it's fixed the problem, until you've determined the exact Announcement that is the culprit.

I did that on your 3 Announcements and saw ritht away that the issue was in Announcement #3. So I looked in the code for that Announcement and noticed at the very top of your page you had a

tag (which is basically an empty container) set to 450 pixels wide, which is wider than your entire Announcements board. Had you had anything inside of the div I would have just set the size down to 380 instead of 450, but in this case it was just a totally blank container anyway, so I just deleting the div entirely, fixing the problem.

Just FYI, try to use descriptive item titles whenever possible. Something like "Help, my Announcements are covering my login box and I don't know why" helps other people with the same issue easily find the solution.
