I'm currently using SharePoint Designer 2013 to create a custom home page for a SharePoint site. I've created an announcements WebPart however I'm having a lot of issues formatting it. I've attached a screenshot of what it currently looks like.

My main question is: How do I stop the weird picture showing up in front of the name in the 'Created By' column? Also, if anyone knows how I can format the title of each post I would be greatly appreciative.

  • What you are seeing are the image used to show a users Skype status, that is formatted through CSS positioning to show the right/current status.. So i guess you are missing out of something. Commented Jun 1, 2016 at 8:01
  • What kind of thing would I be missing out on? Would it be a CSS format?? I'm really stuck :(

Perhaps are you using a custom master page or css on the site? Try the default master pages or even change the theme / look to see if the problem still exists.
