I'm having a problem with TD but I think it's unique to my personal install of Google Chrome, as no one else I speak to seems to have the problem.

Every so often, Twins Daily will not be centered in my browser window and will appear on the left of the window instead of the middle. The entire site shifts to the left upon loading pages.

Is anyone else seeing this issue? If not, please say so... If it DOES appear on the left, definitely let me know. I spent quite a bit of time yesterday writing the site so that under NO circumstances can it shift to the left, yet it continues to do so on my screen (which pretty much means it's a personal browser issue). Please let me know one way or the other. Thanks.

Okay, good. I've tested it on various installs of Firefox and haven't come across it yet. That means it's probably a Chrome-only problem. Now to figure out if it's all installs of Chrome, just my install, or only Chrome for Mac installs (what I'm using).

It doesn't even appear to be a webkit problem (a browser architecture used by multiple browser makers). Webkit is used for both Safari and Chrome but I can't get the error to replicate in Safari.

It happens occasionally with me - Internet Explorer 9.

Good to know. Let me know if it continues, as I just implemented the final changes yesterday evening.

It never has occurred with me on Google Chrome.

Okay, now this is bizarre.

I'm a creature of habit so I'm still using IE 8. I think maybe TD appears to the left of the middle but I always keep my zoom at 200% so I just attributed it to that.

But the weird thing is that after I read this thread the first time, I was in another site on a different browser window and all of a sudden things that were always on the left there are now centered.

Weird coincidence?

Heh, possibly. If you're still having the problem, I suggest deleting your browser cache. I did a clean sweep of my cache earlier today and haven't had the problem since.

I do have that problem, but it hasn't really bothered me that much.

I use chrome, and it is happening right now. It is intermittent, though.
Lighten up Francis....
