[WSG] positioning help needed

2008-12-10 Thread kevin mcmonagle

Hi I'm trying to modify this template to work with a footer.
The problem is getting a footer to float below the right side div.
I can't figure out how to keep #sidebar liquid but still float a footer 
under it.

Is it possible.

Here is the css on that div:

#sidebar {
position: absolute;
left: 51em;
padding: 115px 0.4em 2em 2.5em;
color: #606263; top:0;
}


#sidebar * {
max-width: 40em;
}

#sidebar .column {
float: left;width: 15em;
margin-right: 18px;

  }



heres the example:

Hi Kevin,
I'm not sure if this will help but I always use
.brclear
{
font-size: 1px;
line-height: 0;
clear: both;
height: 0;
}
after the last floated object on a page.
This has fixed footer floating issues for me before.

hope it helps
Rob

Yup,

*clear: both* is the critical rule that allow the footer to clear both
floating divs above it.

... is not floating.

Unless you can predict the height of absolutely positioned content (you 
usually can't) or want to rearrange the document with JavaScript after 
initial rendering (nasty), then placing content below absolutely 
positioned content should generally be forgotten about.


http://css-discuss.incutio.com/?page=CssLayouts has a bunch of points to 
basic layouts that you can look at. If you have a footer, then you 
probably want something based around floats, not abs pos.
