Going nuts! (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm hoping someone here can help. I've been going nuts trying to figure out something on a site I'm trying to create. I have a centered design using a wrap div (aka container div). The "wrap" does not appear to be extending beyond the header even though the whole site is perfectly centered. This seems to be preventing me from doing other things I wish to do. I have put a border in using css to explain my situation. View the site at:

    I feel I have triple checked everything, i.e. closing tags, css, etc. The site validates even! Hopefully a second, third, fourth pair of eyes will help.

    It is still a work in progress so not everything is functioning yet.

    Thanks so much for any help,

    Topher

    I do not see the css, but have use chose a position: of absolute, relative or static for that wrap div.

    What browser are you using ?
    In Firefox it all looks okay.
    In IE the centering is okay but the rest is mangled.

    Thanks for your responses! Darcie, I did not have any positioning in my stylesheet for "wrap", but I did play around with them and it did not get me where I wanted. When I used "absolute" it pushed everything to the left side and left the background image down the middle. Although, it did display the black border all the way around the "wrap"! I have an alternate stylesheet up now that will show this.

    Podz, I am using Firefox as my testing browser because of the web developer tools. I know that it looks good, but what I want is to eliminate the background image and put a border all the way around the "wrap" but as you can see the border only goes around the header. If you look at it in IE for windows it is all mangled (because of box model problems to be fixed), but it still has the border all the way around.

    My problem, I need to get that border all the way around.

    I hope I am making myself clear enough. Hope that info helps you to understand my problem more.

    Keep it coming!

    I beleive you need to add the WRAP in your Index.php not the Header.php. At least that is what I just did and it wrapped the whole blog like I wanted. Click my name on the right for the url.
