I'm been working on this layout for a quite a while now and I had it working fine when the content wasn't any bigger than the window, but when it was the footer moved away and the side graphics didn't go with it.
Sorry, I realise that doesn't make much sense (I'll blame my lack of sleep!).
Firstly, the website: http://www.f5web.co.uk/wpw/
Unfortunately in my attempt to make the 2 side columns (#left, #right) stretch with the content column (#content) I've now broken the footer (#foot) always being at the bottom of the content.
Basically what I need is for the green curves at the side to seperate at the point they meet the sides of the content column, when the content stretches further than 1 window's height, with the bottom parts sticking just above the footer image - creating a fluid layout.
I originally had #left and #right outside the #content div, with the 3 of them just floated in a row. I then had the lower left curve as the background of #left and the lower right curve as the background of #right. This layout didn't extend the height of #left and #right with #content so the background images wouldn't move down.
After reading some of the threads and FAQs regarding equal height columns, I rearranged things, and in doing so realised I could have the lower curves as one background image, as the content div is fixed width. My thinking was that if I set this background image for the #content, wrapped #left and #right within it and then floated #head and #maincontent between them, then #content would always be as long as the longest div within it. At first this didn't work as the divs within in it just stuck out.
I then changed #content to position: absolute - to be honest I'm not really sure why but it sort of worked. The problem then was that the background image was under the footer (http://www.f5web.co.uk/wpw/index2.html).
Upon extending the text I then discovered the problem with the footer, tried removing position:absolute; but found that didn't help.
So now I'm tired, and to be honest have lost track of what I've done and am struggling!
I think if I can get the footer problem sorted, then I just need to set the #content background image to be 94px from the bottom - if that's possible (Apologies for what I've just realised is an extremely long winded way to get to my original question!)
Can anyone please help?
Thanks in advance,
