Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

    [css] float / min-height FF-IE issue

    hi there,

    at the moment im just trying to learn some css-skills... and i ran into some problems... In IE my 'site' is displayed ok, but in FireFox it isnt, check it out here. In IE you will see that the background goes as far as the text goes... but in FF it doesnt. When i remove the float statements in my css script FF displays the background as far as the text goes too, but then i have that float problem... does anybody know how i can fix this? here's my css:
    Code:
    body, html {
     margin: 0;
     background: #6EC2FF;
     text-align: center
    }
    #top {
     margin-left: 13px;
     width: 600px;
     height: 70px;
     background: url(top.jpg);
    }
    #bottom {
     height: 20px;
     background: url(bottom.jpg);
    }
    #center {
     width: 626px;
     margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
     text-align: left
    }
    #content {
     min-height:500px;
      height:auto !important;
      height:500px;
     background: #6EC2FF url(bg.jpg) repeat-y center;
    }
    #left {
     position: relative;
     left: 13px;
     float: left;
     text-align: justify;
     width: 430px;
    }
    #right {
     position: relative;
     right: 13px;
     float: right;
     text-align: justify;
     width: 170px;
    }
    p {
     font-family: verdana;
     font-size: 10px;
     margin: 10px;
    }
    thanks!

    1. you are missing a ; on the 4th line.
    2. use this code.
    Code:
    body, html {
    	margin: 0;
    	background: #6EC2FF;
    	text-align: center;
    }
    #top {
    	margin-left: 13px;
    	width: 600px;
    	height: 70px;
    	background: url(top.jpg);
    }
    #bottom {
    	height: 20px;
    	background: url(bottom.jpg);
    clear: both;
    }
    #center {
    	width: 626px;
    	margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
    	text-align: left
    }
    #content {
    	min-height:500px;
    	background: #FFFFFF repeat-y center;
    }
    #left {
    	position: relative;
    	left: 13px;
    	float: left;
    	text-align: justify;
    	width: 430px;
    }
    #right {
    	position: relative;
    	right: 13px;
    	float: right;
    	text-align: justify;
    	width: 170px;
    }
    p {
    	font-family: verdana;
    	font-size: 10px;
    	margin: 10px;
    }
    3. Put the bottom div inside content div. That's your main problem.
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.
