Hello, i was wondering if anyone could help me with a page that i'm working on. The page is: http://www.futurecorps.net/Home_Page.htm

The problem is, i want to have ONE background table (the rounded edge one) that moves verticaly with what ever content i put in it. At the moment, i have to have several heights for the different pages!

Thanks for any help. :D

Hmmm... You could try using IFrames or the DIV tag. An IFrame would be a frame within that table, meaning you would have to create another page. You can click the links in the menu and they would show up inside that iframe. A div would be saved onto that same page, but you wouldn't be able to change pages inside it (well there are ways, but it's just to darn complicated). Which do you want to do? I'm willing to help with either.

Just a note; if you use iFrames, the main page only needs to be loaded once (ie, the background). With DIV, everything has to be loaded over again with each page.

Thanks for the reply!

I don't want to use an IFRAME. I don't want scrolling content within the table. I just want the table to extend depending on what i put in it.

Cheers!

no no no.... :shock:

I need the white part to extend down or up the page. I don't want to set the height for every page that i make, i just want it automatic. So what ever i put in the white part, it sets the height depending on the height of the content in there.... :?

Ah. I see what you mean. Do you want the left to extend as well or to stay short?

I'm making itty bitty changes to it and trying to figure out how you did your layout.

First off, if you want the menu to stay the same height I suggest you make a main table with two cells (both with "valign=top". Make a table inside the left cell, and set the width and height for the menu. Then for the right side with the content, make another table, with two cells, one top, one bottom. Top one would be used for that menu, bottom for your content divs.

Code: [ Select ]
<div class="home x" style="height:100%">


Doing this alone would extend it vertically as far as you need, but it would also extend the left as well.

Everything is done with CSS.

Unless you know about CSS then i don't think you can be of much help.

However, thanks for the efforts :D

Have a look at this: http://www.futurecorps.net/sr.css

Eh, I'm just more fond of tables than divs. I do know css, but I guess not enough in order to get the look that you wanted from your site. Sorry.

its all one big .txt file at the mo though.

I'm having problems editing your site. There's so much css there and I'm not sure what most of it does. I think you've tried to control way to much there, I find it best with css to try to use as few rules as possible.

I've just managed to code an intersting eror whereby the entire content section dissappears :lol:

What I could do is recode the layout in it's most basic form, annotate it so it makes sense and then let you build the site around that. It's up to you - that could be done in a half hour or so, whereas editing yours could be done in 5 mins or it could take 2 days....

Let me know

Yeah there is loads on the css... All the other stuff is the content on the other pages ie; interviews page, roster etc.

I will upload a css file that controls all on the home_page if that's any good? Then i can just add the other stuff at a later date if i need to?
