Hi Guys,

I have a situation in which I've place a block containing a css menu on top of an existing website.

When the menu.css external file is called on the page, it stops the page from scrolling. Without the external css file, the page work fine. Surprizing to me... this is the case in both Firefox and IE.

The main site also uses CSS but I see no name duplications of any of the elements.

What could be the culpret?

Hi

I think you need this in your css:

html,body{height:100%}

I added the code as below within the CSS that controls the store.
Unfortunately, no luck.

Bulldog

html,body{height:100%}

BODY {
MARGIN-TOP: 0 px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0 px; MARGIN-LEFT: 0 px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0 px;
BACKGROUND-COLOR: #FFFBD3;
}

and tried it as...

BODY { height:100%;
MARGIN-TOP: 0 px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0 px; MARGIN-LEFT: 0 px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0 px;
BACKGROUND-COLOR: #FFFBD3;
}

Hi

This really (REALLY) pains me to say this, but, you have no doctype (I suggest you go for html4.01 transitional)

Give your site a valid doctype

Why? I added one to it on my server on it worked fine, scrolling enabled.

You then need to run it through the validator at W3C

This is THE FIRST TIME a lack of Doctype has directly caused a problem posted that I have read (must have missed a few).

Bravo Trever,

Yes fixing the DTD reference with the correct doctype fixed the scroller issue. Actually it is a little embarrising. Should have caught that myself. :oops:

Thanks,...

Could we take care not to further deepen the identity crisis that Triumph ? is currently trying to resolve, he has only recently settled on a representation of himself that he seems happy with. Now to cast doubts in his mind over his given name is likely to re-awaken that fragile sense of self that he has.

He does seems adamant that he is not Gary and I think that we should respect that fact and indeed help to re-enforce that belief.

Hugo.

I must admit that I liked Gary (whatever his name is) better as a girl. I think. Unless he's a she. Or, a she that is a he. Or, well I am a little confused here.
