[resolved] Yet another Clear:both problem. (6 posts)

    Hi guys,
    I'll cut the long chase short.
    My sidebar isn't extending itself to align with the body content with clear:both.

    I've read the common problem is caused by use of the absolute positioning properties. But that is not used for my containers.

    There are some errors in the validation, but mostly lie within the blog content material (Can they be ignored?).

    Can someone please advise me on how to fix the clear float issue ?

    Your help is much appreciated!

    That has nothing to do with clear. Google for "faux columns".

    Hi moshu,
    Thx for responding, would just like some clarifications made if you don't mind..

    My (simple) structure is:

    <Container>
    <Header></Header>
    <Sidebar>
    <Sidebar Container></Sidebar Container>
    </Sidebar>
    <Content>
    <Content Container></Content Container>
    </Content>
    <Footer></Footer>
    </Container>

    The divs are all floated, rightfully if I have a clear:float at <Footer> , shouldn't it fix the heights of Content & Sidebar ?

    You're setting your images within the sidebar and content. Set it in your container div.

    (I posted on it in your other thread just a few minutes ago)
