How do I stop a site from getting pushed to the left when viewed on a phone?
I have noticed that even when using the meta viewport tag/attribute, on my phone the site is able to be pushed over to the left exposing whitespace from the right side. I thought I was doing something wrong but noticed it happens on the jQuery Mobile site (just to use as an example): http://jquerymobile.com/
In landscape mode it fills the viewport and doesn't move but in portrait I'm able to drag the whole page over to the left exposing whitespace.
Is there a way to stop that?

Check for any elements breaking out of your containing div, or wrapper. On the jQuery Mobile site the "ThemeRoller" image and a tag are breaking out of its parent.

Also check out the width of the element too. I see some sites that their ads are wide and it just pushes it everywhere. Bad sites : p
Oh I see, perfect, thank you!
