    Hi all.

    I wrote a post in the PHP forum where I needed help with HTML to PHP conversion, because that my webdesigner went to military service for 12 months. A moderator from here will help me do that for a couple bucks.

    But I have serious problems with Dreamweaver and HTML. I have tested everything I can last 4 hours, but it doesn't work. Please see the attachment.

    As you can see, I can't get the white "main" to go further down. Nothing works - I tested to replace absolute with relative to see if anything was in the way of the white main. And I also tested to make a "main2" in the CSS to fix the height of the main area.

    It seems like no HTML works in this website. I can't make the size of the text smaller where I want it smaller. The marginal is way to the left. The text won't fit in the area I want. There's no option in the CSS to fix this.

    PS. "Stylesheet2" is the one which I use now for this page. The regualar one is for the other pages.

    Thanks in advance for help

    It would be easier if you made a temp folder on your website, and placed these files there for people here to look at. Kind of time consuming to download the files and load them up to check out the problem.

    Hi Kingmundi.

    There's no scripting that need Apache or something like that. Everything is in those files. The index is based on the css files you got there.

    So you should be able to see everything just from those two files.

    But we cannot see any of the necessary images
    unless they are reference by absolute paths.

    I can't seem to open the .css files (error within WDF?)

    It would be easier if we could just see a test website.

    Here's the link!

    EDIT:

    You can see that I can't get the white lower down so the text will be visible.

    In stylesheet2.css

    Try changing...

    #wrap {
    height: 270px;

    to
    #wrap {
    height: 900px;

    Hi Kingmundi.

    I've tried that, but it seems like I make something wrong. Because it should work by doing that. I also tried to change relative to absolute and vice versa.

    See my test example:

    http://www.catpin.com/robin

    One of the biggest problems with layout is the use of
    positioning (absolute and relative), along with defining heights.

    If you can avoid defining heights, it usually makes things easier.
    Sometimes it can't be avoided. I think my example page looks
    the same in both browsers? There still might be some issues
    with positioning though.

    Thanks Mlseim!

    That's how I want it. Is is possible to allign the text to the center, and remove the white thing around the copyright?

    See the test example again.

    Note that the image at the bottom has a white space below.
    You actually have that white space within your .jpg image.
