I'm a new user, but a long time reader (sounds like I'm on a radio show lol) and I just have a question regarding the "page shift problem". For those of you who are not familiar with what the page shift is, it's basically only happens with "centered" templates.
It's when your page is shifted to the left just a couple of pixels because of the vertical scrollbar that is added when there is a lot of content on the page. When there's not a lot of content (and the vertical scrollbar is not needed) then the page looks normal.
However, once a visitor gets browsing some pages will have a lot of content, some will not. So the whole site will sometimes shift to the left just a little bit, and then other times it will not.
Is there a proper fix for this? The guy I hired to do my web design is saying he is just going to make it so the vertical scrollbar always shows up, regardless if there is a little content or a lot of content (which would require the scrollbar). It seems like he is taking the easy way out. Is there some proper way to do this?
Maybe a better way instead of just adding a vertical scrollbar to every page?
Your input is appreciated! :)
