IE 6 Format Problem

Thread began 1/20/2010 1:47 pm by jbergwall369376 | Last modified 1/21/2010 12:57 pm by prh398562 | 2363 views | 9 replies |

IE 6 Format Problem

I used CSS sculptor to build this site:

www.paulsonindustries.net/

It works correctly in other browsers but not IE6 - utilizing the Spoon Browser Sandbox site.
The main content is wrapping BELOW the right column, therefore there is a HUGE white space above the main images.

Any help or code snippet would be greatly appreciated.

this behavior occurs when the width of an item exceeds the width of the container element.


In your case, the images in the main content are set to be 498 pixels wide, and the content div only has 495 pixels. Change the width of the images in the content div to 495 so they can fit in the content div.

Thanks for your input!

Dear Jimmy Wu & Jason Byrnes, your image size fix worked great!

Please, if it's not too much trouble, tell me how you were able to calculate the image area at 495 px instead of the 500 px I had come up with...

Sure, the true width of a div is calculated as width + padding.

the contentWrapper is set to:
width: 780px;
padding: 0


rightColumn1 is set to:
padding: 10px 10px 10px 15px; //short hand for: top right bottom left

content is set to:
margin: 0 260px 0 0; //short hand for: top right bottom left - this gives the right column 260 px on the right hand side of the content wrapper.

780 - 260 = 520

we need to add the left (10px) and right (15px) padding from the rightColumn1 though
260 + 10 + 15 = 285 This is the true width of the right column
780 - 285 = 495

Math Tip

Thanks! I see I missed the 15 px (I added as 10) and that explains it. Sorry for the inconvenience, have a great day!

The width of the content is larger than the width of the container. In all other browsers, this displays correctly, but in IE6, the content will get wrapped to below other content.

CSS Sculptor Question - How to Open an Existing Page

Hi,

How do I use CSS Sculptor to open an existing page created without it to use its benefits to enhance it? Is there any better documentation to how to use these extensions than what is provided on your website? I bought CSS Design Suite and cannot figure out how to use it to enhance my existing website -- I don't want to start over!

Thank you

Activate a Submit Button

HI,

Is there anything in the CSS Design Suite that will help me activate a submit button. I have created it with the form but cannot figure out how to activate it.

Thank you

CSS Sculptor is used to create New CSS Layouts. It cannot be used to edit an existing layout.


I'm not sure I follow what you mean by activate a submit button. What are you trying to accomplish with the form?

Hi,

I guess I misunderstood your marketing materials -- I should never have purchased your products, they are a waste of money.
