    Issues with a layout that has no header/footer

    I hate this website. Let me just say that it wasn't my idea to create a rounded edge website that is aligned right and REALLY SMALL because it can't really scroll vertically.

    So i am working to crap as much info into this screen size page as possible by using image slideshows and tabbed navigation (jquery tabbed interface).

    I am having a MAJOR issue with the positioning of these elements. I basically do not have a header, footer, and main.. I have a sidebar (on the left) and a main. within the main content I would like to have three divs stacked on top of each other.

    So have a look here:

    the container is not expanding as I add more content, which makes the rest of the content look like its falling off of the page.

    I tried removing the absolute positioning of the mainContent div, and that ended up with everything pushed down around 150px (but there were no margins or anything set - it was just aligning about 150px from the top of the page)_

    Anyways.. if someoen can take a look and help point me in the right direction, i would REALLY appreciate it. I'm SOOO lost right now I havent a clue what to do.

    here is the html code:

    <body class="twoColFixLt">
    <div id="container">
      <div id="sidebar1" class="menu">

    The structure appears to be this basically:

    div {height:10em; width:100&#37;;}
    body {width:600px; margin:auto;}
    #container {overflow:hidden;}
    #menu, #gallery {float:left; width:50%;}
    #header {background:#ccc;}
    #menu {background:#9cf;}
    #gallery {background:#fc9;}
    #content {background:#eee;}

    No.. thats not what i have. I have a container that is aligned right and there is no header the way that you have it.

    I created a diagram. Did you look at the link too?

    Hello lindsayanng,
    Are you still looking for help on this? I see this thread is almost 2 months old...

    It doesn't look like much trouble but I won't bother if you've moved on to another project.

    Thanks for offering the help, I actually worked it out myself.. If i could remember what I did to fix it I would post here, but I jumped through a lot of options before I got there.. Luckily in the meantime I also got a lot of knowledge of CSS as I did that
