I see, so the problem is with the "mobile" format rather than the site in general.

The problem you have is that although you've switched to using the mobile friendly option, you have not converted your pages to use the new drag and drop editor, so everything is set out in tables. These do not behave well, and the areas that you're seeing issues are due to there being fixed widths and heights on tables and table cells; great for fixed format pages, not so great for flexible pages that need to move content.

I made a couple of changes to your "Pest Information" page that have helped with the placement of pictures and text, but you really need to go through each page and switch to the new editor. This will require some work on your part, as some of the placement for elements on the page wont "translate" perfectly.

The reason for this being necessary is that where the old system relied on table cells to keep things in place (fixed content), the new drag and drop editor uses divs (so flexible content). The reason it'll take you a bit of work is that divs are not a straight "replacement" for table cells, so some of their behaviours are different.

I hope this helps.

(btw, I don't think this has "changed", it's simply not consistent, for all the reasons above...)

I just took a look, and it all looks fine to me. Can you give a specific example of where you see a problem? (might just be badly cached on your browser).
