I was just editing my welcome message by copy and pasting something I had written in Microsoft Word then when I clicked save and refreshed the page it was overlapped bad. The right side widgets are on top of the welcome message and some widgets aren't even showing up. Please can you fix this for me? I have tried everything imaginable. From moving and deleting widget boxes to re-editing the message with site-friendly font. This is clearly a bug, but what can I do?! Help help help! Ty for your time in reading this post.

Sincerely, Chris

Have you tried using Paste from Word (6th icon in on the top row) to clean up Word's excess code?

The problem doesn't seem to be within Words code because I have deleted everything within the the welcome message including the widget itself, and tried placing it back in. When I remove the Welcome Widget it shows the center section the way it should though. The problem seems to be the welcome widget itself.

This is the site --->  www.TheVolkoff.guildportal.com

Have you edited only the Default portion of the Welcome widget? Have you altered the other Rank settings? The Welcome widget will retain whatever code was placed in there even if the widget itself is removed. So as soon as you place it back in, if any odd code remains, it may mess with the rest of the site.

Open the Welcome widget, switch to HTML mode (<>HTML at the bottom of the editor), and make sure no code exists in all the "Editing Welcome for:" pages (you'll need to switch to HTML mode each time you select a different Rank page).
