ok here is my layout

there are no tables at all its all css floats but the only problem is that the left and right menus go over the copyright bar on the bottom the middle box doesnt the copyright stays 45px from the middle box but i want it to be under all the boxs because right now the menus go over the copyright i want its copyright to be below the boxs on the right and left ive tried many things but I cant seem to get it to work i dont want to use tables ither

it looks like you are using absolute positioning on the left box and the right box and absolute positioning takes elements out of flow with the rest of the page so it doesnt matter if the copyright box is clearing a float or not the other boxes are going to float right on top either you should use floats for the left and right boxes so you can clear them with the copyright box or you should adjust your positioning on the copyright box manually i would also suggest you read our posting guidelines because its really hard to read a post that doesnt use either punctuation or capitalization im sure if you can master the art of advanced css positioning you can also use some basic english skills to help us read your questions

Here is an example I coded for another thread:


Also, the FAQs in this section has a list of many three-column layouts. Absolute positioning can work but you will have to adjust something if you don't want an absolutely positioned box to float over another one.
