Uneven Columns with CSS Sculptor

Uneven Columns with CSS Sculptor

When I create most sites with two columns, I have a problem if the center/main column is larger than the side-bar. See uneven.html for an example from a site under development.

When I customized the design I clicked on even columns, but I am obviously missing something.

In other sites I have had this problem and have kludged a solution by inserting transparent .gifs at the end of short columns.

In just one case, www.criminaldefensesanfrancisco.com, the column are colored to the end of the page without any kludges.

I feel like that there must be some obvious that I'm missing... but I cannot find what it is!

Hi Ozdachs,

The template designs are using the 'faux column' technique - using a background image in the contentWrapper div (repeating on the y axis) to give the impression of equally lengthed columns. For some reason, the page your first link points to is referencing an image that it can't find.

In your Hawes2.css stylesheet, If you change the name of the image in the css rule for the outerWrapper #contentWrapper div from contentWrapper_bg.jpg to contentWrapper_bg.png, the faux-column effect should be okay again.

The rule should look like this:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper {
background-color:#FFFFFF;
background-image:url("CSSSculptor/2ColumnFixedHeaderandFixedFooter_HawesEqual_images/contentWrapper_bg.png");
background-repeat:repeat-y;
border-color:#990000;
border-width:0;
margin-bottom:0;
margin-top:0;
overflow:hidden;
padding-bottom:23px;
width:960px;
}
