Position Issues... Stacking (4 posts)

    Hello all. I am fairly new. I've worked with a variety of Themes before, but this was my first go at a custom theme. here's my issue:

    WP v. : 2.2
    site: http://www.trappedinhell.com
    css: http://www.trappedinhell.com/wp-content/themes/custom/style.css

    OK. issue:

    I'm wrapping my "logo" in a block and float:left. this works fine. UNTIL you begin shrinking the browser window. When you do this the main content block drops and stacks on the position of the logo. i don't want this. what I would like instead is that the logo block NOT move. so when the window begins shrinking that instead of stacking it just stops scaling the window. in a normal browser this is not an issue as most people's resolutions settings are high enough to not be a problem. but on lower res screens it gets wonky.

    any ideas? i do not pretend to be a CSS expert, as I am continuing to learn as i create. i have a feeling it has something to do with HOW i am wrapping the content and not declaring position, but i can't seem to figure it out.

    thanks in advance for any feedback, and i do take criticism well. feel free to comment on the design, etc.

    Well, if it were me, and I were "married" to that theme, I'd do one of two things:

    a) make the logo smaller.
    b) make it part of the background image.

    Because you're floating everything else, that's what it's going to do, by the very nature of floating, is drop below it when need be. If you didn't float however, when the browser was set at 800, you'd get part of your right side cut off with a scrollbar at the bottom.
