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.

Thread: CSS column problem

    CSS column problem

    I have 2 columns. column left is the navigation and a login. they are wrapped in a left float named leftColumn. The right column is content and there is a footer at the botton which is cleared.

    the left column has a background color and if there is lots of content the left column doesnt follow it down. there is white space under the left column. Id like the left column to expand down if there is more and more content showing.

    anyway way to fix this?

    hmm I know what youre saying.. it doesnt continue down like the td in a tr would..
    The way I get around this is to put a background colour on the container div and then a different background colour on the content area - thereby giving the impression that the nav column continues down..
