just a little css help needed please

Hi guys

No urgency here but when you have a min to spare, just wondering a couple of things:

1) on this page http://emilygoad.co.uk/gallery.php and this one http://emilygoad.co.uk/repertoire.php, how do I make sure the main content area box stays wrapped what it should rather than letting it flow into the footer area?

2) in the tabbed panel area of this page http://emilygoad.co.uk/repertoire.php, how do I get the alternating background colours for each row of the table?

Thanks

Jamie

1) add a height attribute to the #outerWrapper #mainWrapper #contentWrapper #contentArea

#outerWrapper #mainWrapper #contentWrapper #contentArea {
background-image: url("../images/misc/conten-bgd.png");
background-repeat: repeat;
border-style: none;
box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px 0 rgba(51, 51, 51, 0.5);
height: 1000px;
margin-top: 37px;
padding: 40px;
width: 620px;
}




2) use the repeating table behavior from DataBridge, this allows you to specify a light and dark style to use for alternating rows.

Thanks Jason

I didn't use the height attribute as it was a bit to prescribed so ended up using an empty div below the content and eg <div style="clear:both; height:1px;"><div> which seems to have done he trick

I will check out the DB repeating table behaviour you've suggested

the repeating table is an excellent bit of kit, took quite a few attempts to get it right but all good now.

2 questions I have are:

1. if you have more than 1 table on the same page at the moment the alternating backgrounds pick up from the preceding table, how would you get each table to start fresh? - Have worked this one out

2. what is the alternative text bit for? this is what got me stumped on many attempts to get the repeating table working and I ended up having to remove it....

the alternative text is used when the recordset does not return enough results to create a full row.

in other words, if you set the columns to 3 and rows to 3 (3 by 3 = 9 cells) and the recordset only returns 7 results, the last 2 cells will use the alternate text.
