    CSS Container

    Hi-

    I'm having some problems with a container coding for a draft of a fanlisting I'm trying to create. :3 For reference, this is the test.

    What I want is a container for the text/content etc. that begins at 400px from the top, and sticks to the bottom of the page regardless of amount of text,like this. What I'm getting now is this wherein it only exactly accommodates the text. And for some weird reason, I can't even get the background of the container to be white (#ffffff).

    I think it may possibly be a problem with the stylesheet, or something else in the coding is contradicting it? I would really appreciate any help, because I'm quite stuck and a big novice. :3

    Thank you!

    You'd need to use faux column approach.

    Thank you for the very helpful link. :]

    I don't mean to be pushy but something about the container background color really isn't working. [Testing Site Link] Under #container I've tried putting "background:#ffffff" which should make it white, but it remains transparent...any tips?

    and to confirm, from what I've read, to attach the bottom of the div box, I should write something like "height:100%" in the css?

    Thank you to anyone who replies and sorry for the trouble!
