Still ever the beginner here. lol

I'm just trying to put together a quite simple site for a friend, and I sem to be getting there... at least, I thought I was.

I started out with CSScreators very own generator, and am tweaking somewhat to achieve what I'm looking for... so far that just consists of a background image at the top, one on the footer, and a repeating image down the left column... for some reason, the image isn't repeating on the left column though, and I have no idea why.

index.htm
birds.css

If anybody could give a pointer or two, I'd very much appreciate it.

height

Hi crimsone,
The left column hasn't enough content or height to extend any further.
Try putting that background image in the wrapper div that way the column will expand with the content.

I did search, but didn't

I did search, but didn't find an answer...

...it's probably a silly question, but I want the image to repeat vertically - I assume that's what you were talking about? I have to ask, because at this stage I'm not sure I understand the answer.

Edit: Never mind - I understand... thankyou very much.

Woops, maybe I should change

If you add the background-image rules to the #wrapper element you should with a little positioning get the look you are after.

Hi crimson,

Hi crimson,

Try adding this to your style sheet.
#wrapper{background-image:url(backround%20css%20images/sidebar2.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-y;}

Thanks all... I did

Thanks all... I did something stupid last night (I was tired), and failed to mark it as solved - after my last post I changed it locally, but didn't upload. I added the appropriate lines into the .clearfix class which seems to have worked a treat (I think!). Probably not the intended reason for it's existance, but it seemed close enough to do the trick (and it seems it did!)

I do appreciate everybodies time and assistance though. I may have another question or two in a little while, but I'll do some searching first Smile
