Hi Guys,
In need of a little help if possible please.
Please check out link below. Just my hobby, nothing special.
http://www.jays-creations.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/im-updates.html

I am having an issue with the main content section of my pages. Link above is the best example for quantity. Not everything is linked correctly yet as only just getting started, so to speak.
At present I have them scrolling using "overflow:auto;" in my CSS (only as this seems to work best, at this time), but I don't think I really want them that way, but if I remove the overflow:auto; my content drops "over" my footer and the page doesn't actually move down with the text as expected it should.
I know about the clear:all; or clear:both;, but for the life of me cannot figure things out and I am now baffled, probably from trying to hard to figure this out.:confused:

You may not see the scrolling if you are using 1280 x 1024 res' (which is what I use) or above. Scrolling issue seen better with 1024 x 768 res'.

I hope you see what I mean.
Thanks in advance for any help guys. Would appreciate a little more expert help on this one.:thumbsup:

Jay

Hi abduraooft,
Thanks very much for the link. Much appreciated.:)
I think I now see where I have gone wrong.

I guess it would be ok to use the code on webpage shared and add my CSS into the correct sections as desired?
I would also still like my "striped" bg on the page as with the link that I shared, but obviously bring the margins of the "wrap" inwards and it would still look as intended without too much of a change in the coding?

Anyhow, either way....thanks very much for your help.:thumbsup:

Jay
