View Full Version : XHTML/CSS 2 Column Fluid Layout
10-26-2006, 09:47 AM
Hello, I've been working on updating my site, as it doesn't have the functionality that I want it to have. Well, I decided on having a two column fluid layout, one column for the menu, one for the content. So, I started making it, and I've come across a problem. The best way for me to describe it is to say that the problem is with the heights of the columns, as if one gets bigger than the other one, the other one doesn't adapt to the same height. I have temporarily uploaded it to here:
And the CSS is here:
Thanks for any help!

You can fake it with Faux Columns (http://alistapart.com/articles/fauxcolumns/).

But if you need js, how does this site do it?

That site just uses a background color in the #container div.

Thanks, I think I understand, but I also thought I had made the container white.
I just can't get it to work.

You are right you did do that but you didn't clear your floats. Its not right to take someone elses design.

Thanks very much for that link, but I don't understand what you mean by saying taking someone elses design.
