Hi there guys,
This is my first visit to this site and I must say it is very useful and a great asset to anyone beginning to learn to code.
I am on my first attempt at putting together a site for a content management system.
I have set up the header and the area for the links, but, I am now on the content area and I have tried to play around a bit, but I would be really grateful if I can get some help on it.
The *current progress* can be found here:
The css and html is all in the source there for now.
If you go to the here:
you will see the jpg of what the site is eventually going to look like (though there is only 1 content box at the moment as they will all be the same).
What I am doing for the content areas is as follows:
Code:<div id='content_wrapper'> <div id='content_wrapper_lb'> </div> <div id='content_wrapper_center'> </div> <div id='content_wrapper_rb'> </div> <!--Footer--> </div>
So, if you look at the source on the site, you will see that the content wrapper is supposed to encompass the left border, the content wrapper center and the right border - (it is annoying to have to build the borders like this, but I could not think of any other way).
once I have figured this out, there will be further content boxes inside the content_wrapper_center to contain the menus and news etc.
The difficulty I am having is that I want the left and right (and center) content area images to repeat in the y direction, to the height of the main overall content wrapper while things inside the center content wrapper expand down the page.
At the moment, the left , right and center seem to be expanding independently from one another and not filling the outer content wrapper as the center content wrapper grows.
I have used some testing text to show what happens when the content wrapper center grows.
I hope I have been clear enough for you guys to be able to give me some assistance - If I have not been, please do shout.
Many thanks in advance for your help,
