I think it is based on the amount of code. So in internet speak everything you do adds characters. Each icon, text color, bold vs regular, etc.

Two lines for instance, adds a < br > or < p > between the lines. So it might be that those few extra characters in the code actually push you over the limit.

The formatting for colours, bold type, font and font size all add extra code. You can try taking some of this out and see whether that helps.

You can also ask someone with photo editing knowledge to use the icons and words up above, cut them out and place them in on a white/invisible background in the order you'd like.

Yes exactly. That's why I was so confused cause I know I've seen other folks do the same.
Notice that she doesn't have added colors and bold.

Compared to yours:

Code:

Ah I see the diffence. I've been messing around with it for about 10 mins taking stuff out and changing and still nothing. I guess Ill just give up on the colors and see if that helps. Thanks!

YES! I got it! I just had to make it aline to the far left and then center it myself vs using the center option for alignment!
Thank you so much everyone! This was getting rather frustrating,lol. :grouphug2:
