Issue with text overlapping in mobile browser

I have built a responsive grid layout for a website. it works fine in desktop browsers, but when I shrink the width of the browser, the first two bodies of text overlap with one another.

Hello Hampton,

I assume when your browser shrinks, the overall container does as well to accommodate the new screen size. This could depend on how you have your code setup.

Without seeing your code here are some recommendations:

  • Check your structure overall containers, containers around the text areas etc
  • Check your margins and padding around the text
  • How are you displaying your content?

Let us know how it goes!
