so my problem with my webpage NerdyFuture is that it does not display it correctly on the web. On my localhost the page looks fine. Strangly when i put it on the web it looks fine first but after a while the position changes. Does anyone know how to fix this?

How the page should look like (localhost): enter image description here

  • Some free web hosting providers add some html/JavaScript/CSS codes to the rendered pages. This would make elements untidy.

You're not giving enough information, after a while the position changes is not very helpful.

Here's a couple of common reasons for layout errors:

  1. Make sure you've transferred all your files to the server. If possible, use Akeeba Backup and Kickstart.
  2. Make sure you've included your custom CSS files properly. Take a look at this post for a couple of alternatives. I don't know if you have a custom.css file, but if you do, it's not loaded in your source code. These are the CSS files I could see in your source code:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/protostar/css/Header.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/protostar/css/Bootstrap.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/protostar/css/Latest-Articles.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/protostar/css/Top-Articles.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/templates/protostar/css/template.css" type="text/css" />

    (the rest are extension specific)

  3. Make sure your code contains no absolute paths to http://localhost or relative paths that aren't valid on your live server.

  4. Clear both your browsers cache and Joomla cache.

Found the problem. I use Google Chrome development tools a lot so I can easily assign values to properties. what I did is just copy/paste the CSS code from Chrome to the appropriate CSS file. Turns out to be that The development tools assign a wrong class or/and id. Changed some classes and everything works fine now
