The content has to fit your total width.

 

2x150=300 for the columns

300 + 480 = 780px used by columns +your large image

 

Total width is set to 800px (approx)

 

So all padding and margins and the extra column (to the right of the large image) has to fit into( 800-780 =) 20 pixels only! That's impossible, it just does not fit.


Please do not PM me for support, I will not respond anyway.

ok but if you notice I have some text to the side of my image

I was assuming that if it wouldn't fit in the central column, then oscommerce would automatically carry it on to the new line...but the content seems to override the width settings!! isn't there any way to keep the width in every single circumstance? :P

Actually, if you want to make it the right size so people with an 800x600 setting can view it without a scrollbar on the bottom you need to set it at 770. 780 is ok if people only use IE but there are other browsers out there that need 770 pixels wide.
