Hi all i need some help on this or someone can guide me to fix this.

On the home page of http://www.fishermandepot.com. I originally set 4 categories as feature product, best sellers....etc in a one row style. that you click each tab and 5 products will reflect with the choices on top.

It was working perfectly till I went to the cms home page at back end, did not touch any code modification. All i did was click on the save button. All of sudden, the front end is all messed up on that section. It actually extended all the tag, changed the design and covered all my footers.

Can any one help me take a look into it and restore to the original style. I am assuming all the file and code is there since i have not modified anything. I sincerely appreciate it.

This is because of the WYSIWYG Editor. If it is active when you save your custom code it will sometimes overwrite it. It is best to always keep this to disabled by default to avoid these issues. Go to System->Configuration->Content Management and disable it by default. That will allow you to still use it but keeps you from making that mistake.

I am not sure if in the database it gets overwritten or not. I am checking into that now for you. I’ll update you soon. Also, your other option is to see if your hosting company has a recent backup.

Unfortunately I just confirmed that it does overwrite the original table row so there is no way to recover the code unless you or your hosting company has a backup.

Can you take a screen shot of your cms page so I can see how bad the code got messed up. Maybe I can help you fix it.
