I'm trying to create a web page, and am running into 3 problems, 2 of which are fairly serious. Here's the page in question: http://www.totalsmileprotection.com/The ... -T-System/
1. The website builder is turning my single apostrophes into double apostrophes – for example, instead of saying “Dentist's”, it says “Dentist"s”, which makes me look bad as a copywriter. No matter how many times I change it to a single apostrophe, it replaces it with a double after I hit "save", even after I use shift-F5 on the website page.
2. When I copy and paste text into APWT, it gets rid of the lines between paragraphs, and increases the gap between paragraphs. So instead of the kind of paragraph breaks you see while writing a response to this forum, I get the kind where you hit the down key once to move from one paragraph to another. If I paste directly from a Google doc control-shift-C, that's the result I get; if I just use control-C, I get the additional line between paragraphs (good), but I also get the extra space between lines (bad).
I used to have a workaround in which I pasted from the Google doc into a Notepad document, then into an APWT blog post, then into the web page. Cumbersome, but effective. But even that doesn't work anymore.
Honestly, I’ve always felt that the whole “text processors add extra spaces between paragraphs for you” function should be banned from the entire internet forever. >_<; It invariably wastes more time in re-formatting after copying and pasting than it’s ever saved me in hitting “enter” an extra time between paragraphs.
3. It unconditionally WILL NOT let me change the font in this web page. Even if I change it from Helvetica to Big Caslon in the builder, once I hit "save", it reverts to Helvetica. This happens even if I don't click on the typing box after I make the change.
I wonder how many of the chronic font-related issues I’ve been experiencing are due to the APWT platform itself, and how many are due to coding in the themes that interacts negatively with APWT as a whole. Do the themes and the platform largely follow the same coding rules (or whatever it is that makes themes and website builders compatible)? Is the coding for the theme overriding the coding in APWT?
Thanks in advance for your help.
