Hello, I'm new here - I hope this is the correct forum for my question

Currently I have our main web page showing current newsletter link, hot topics etc and below that is links to recent newsletters and links to other pages of interest.

I don't know what happened, but the site used to show the newsletter links on the left side and the links to other pages on the right side. Now the newsletter links are on the left and as you scroll down the web page links are on the right but below the newsletter links.

Can anyone tell me how to get them side by side again?

web page is www.sacrc.org

Thanks!

For starters, the site uses frames, which have their own problems.

It looks like the content page in question is http://www.sacrc.org/new_at_sacrc.html

The online validator reports a lot of structural problems:
https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http%3A%2F...w_at_sacrc.html

Looking at it myself, it seems the newsletter links are in one TBODY element, and the links to the other pages are in another TBODY element. The structure of tables is that one TBODY will follow another. I wouldn't expect to be able to display them side by side. Also, why are you using tables if you don't want to use the table structure?

Darin, thanks for your reply. I'm using what I inherited. It was originally built with FrontPage, then when I took it on I switched to CoffeeCup.

Thanks for the link to the validator - Ill run it and see what comes up.

Thanks again!

I recently switched from a column design using tables to a responsive column design. I ended up using a free template from W3schools and modifying the HTML code to meet my needs, here is the link to their templates: https://www.w3schools.com/w3css/w3css_templates.asp
