Hi, I copy and pasted a series of photos reminiscing about old products. Pictures came out on right side, BUT on left side there is a series of vertical lines that just hang there. It's on the What's New page. What did I do now ?

Whatever you copied, a whole lot of external source code came over with it. Honestly, it would take forever to untangle that. All of those images are loading off of somebody else's server.

I would do this:

1) Take any text you want on the page and copy and paste it into Windows Notepad. That will get rid of any html code behind the scenes.
2) Now copy it from Windows Notepad and paste it into your editor. Get the text alone formatted exactly how you want it.
3) Now upload any images to the page *from your own computer*. This is very important. You can insert image code that loads pictures from somebody else's server if you really want to, but it's not a very good practice. You're then dependent on somebody else to maintain those images, never rename them, move them, or delete them. You're dependent on that external web server always being online as well.

If you build the page in this fashion you will end up with clean source code and images all tied to your own web site, which is a good thing. Smile
