Homepage View- Cut Off

Jump to solution


I'm a digital learning coach for a district of teachers. One thing we've noticed from time to time is that if a teacher has created a page as their homepage, in student view some portion of the homepage is cut off.  It's typically the right side of the page, and it usually happens because a table is on the homepage.  It doesn't appear that way when they are creating it, but when students view it there is an additional menu on the right that cuts off what the homepage shows. Most of the time there is a scroll bar at the bottom for students to scroll over to see the rest of the homepage, but is there a way to ensure the page they create won't be cut off on the right side?

Hello emilycraddock​ -

My first recommendation is that you check a fantastic resource that Canvas champion  @clong ​ wrote that addresses this very topic:  Home Sweet Homepages without Tables .  Especially with the new navigation bar on the left, I have heard a few complaints from faculty about this very topic.  The issue is, indeed, using the tables.  But traditions die hard, and I suppose that--barring Chris' excellent general advice--you suggest to faculty to use the option to set the table properties to a percentage width, which is covered in the general table guide here:  How do I insert a table using the Rich Content Editor?

This is probably easier to try rather than explain, but see if you can find a page that you know this occurs for, and see if setting the width to specific percentage does the trick.  It should; because the table will the adjust itself on any screen to that percentage width--albeit with the possible downside of the text not appearing quite the way the teacher would like it to.
