View Full Version : Creating a fluid 2 column layout with top header and footer fixed at the bottom

Hi...Can someone help me create a fluid design with 2 columns for left nav and content. a top header and a footer that is fixed at the bottom. Also, I need the left nav and main content to be of equal height so it will look good if given a background color.

im pretty sure no none will make it for you. but we can start you offi guess. but you need to be more specific.

this is taken right off my site:

<frameset rows="50%,50%" cols="50%,50%">
<frame src="topleft.htm" name="topleft">
<frame src="topright.htm" name="topright">
<frame src="botleft.htm" name="botleft">
<frame src="botright.htm" name="botright">

its got a top left top right then the bottoms split into 2. change it the way you want. i could help more if you explained.

The making stuff equal height will require a repeating background image. With you a few tweaks here and there you can make the footer position:fixed;
For IE you need to trick it, read this (http://tagsoup.com/-dev/null-/css/fixed/).
