I am working with WP's default layout and have created a left-hand column to hold some of my menu items.
My left-hand column insists on remaining below the content - what looks like 100px below the end of the content block (also below the "credit" block & body borders, but that appears to be coincidental), which is what I set for the column "margin-top", even though it's position is set for absolute.
I made the content div position relative (which contains everything but "header", "credit", and "menu" [the original right-hand menu]). I even made the "header" and "credit" positions relative (only after the first try didn't work). I even went so far as to make the "body" "position: absolute" in an attempt to make that menu move up to where it's supposed to be.
I have also set content width to auto, but still no go.
The order in my html is header, content, left menu, right menu, then credit - which is the way I would like to keep them.
I've worked with 3 columns before (in same order as above), but just can't see why this isn't working.
It would be great to get some help for this. :)
As for a link to my site, I would prefer not to "advertise it", so if you have suggestions of things for me to check, I would appreciate it. But if someone is quite certain they could definitely find the problem by looking at my site and css, please let me know and we can work something out privately.
Thank you very much!
