    Pages Jumping from side to side

    I built up this website using Dreamweaver and CSS divs, but i'm having a small problem with the individual pages lining up. Some seem to be more off to the right, and others to the left, but very slightly. So when you navigate from page to page, it looks like the site is jumping side to side.

    I'm sure it's some small detail in the CSS, but I can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Here is the site:

    Some of your pages have more content that others and so there's a vertical scroll bar on the right side of the browser. I think, the shifting is due to the appearance/disappearance of that scroll bar. If you are really worried about it, you may need to forcibly add a scroll bar even on pages with less content.

    you're right! I didn't catch on to that. now, there has to be another way to get around that other than adding an unnecessary scroll bar. atleast, I hope there is...

    i've never noticed this happen on any other site, i'm gonna have to look around and see

    The scrollbar is the main issue, but another part of the problem is that the design is inconsistent. The parent page is different from all the rest. The logo has no black outline. The main nav is shorter. And the content area layout is different.

    By the way, you do plan on paying for that stock photography, right?
