    So, I'm part of the web design group at my school and we've hit a bump. This bump isn't terrible, just really annoying--to those who notice (like me). Now, this is the school site: http://chspanthers.org and what's going on is that horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the page. From what I've discovered it from the navigation menu implemented, which is originally from here: http://www.lwis.net/free-css-drop-do...n.mtv.com.html
    I'd like to know if somebody has some kinda insight as to what can be done, with only CSS, to prevent that horizontal scroll bar.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I think it's due to something Dreamweaver has done - some absolute width or something in the template. I'd like to see you get all of the CSS into an external file - that will make it easier to fiddle with it and see what can be done to fix it.

    I would suggest going through all of your main layout div's and checking the set width. You may even find a div that you forgot about when you started coding the site (I did that a few times. I felt like...:banghead If this doesn't help then it has something to do with dreamweaver.

    There are at least a couple of divs with set widths of 1000px, as well as the header image. But even changing the widths or removing them completely , the scrollbar is still there...

    It would be much much easier if he uploaded a zip file of the site.

    I appreciate the interest, fellas. I'll get right on that ZIP file for y'all. As for getting all the CSS in one file, isn't possible at this time... Apologizes.

    Here's the link to the ZIP: http://www.multiupload.com/1U9I5PD7BM It had to be external, since it's a large file. There are probably still some basic coding errors here and there, but shouldn't be too bad.

    Why do you have css on your html? You already have an external file for the css why not move it there? It would be much easier to dig through your code if its well organized and clean.

    There was something about the those certain styles that wouldn't work at the time.

    Makes sense. I'll look through your code when I get home.
