Hello,

please connect to Link. when prompted, use "artefy" as the username and "artastic2" as the password.

The center area, which has a black background should be expanded automatically in vertical direction, but it does not work.

I have used "min-height" property. If you take that property off using firebug (to #art_detail style), the height is reduced.

How can I do it?

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Best regards,
Jaime

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

I don't know how I'd do the 100% thingy with that block. It can be done at the expense of a major rewrite. I don't think it would be a good move anyway, as it creates a heavy "feel" to the page. Further, it's a print thing, not web. The web is dynamic and the author is not in full control. Compare to static print, where the author/designer controls everything.

You can lock the footer at the bottom. I'd limit the footer to only that last single line of links. See Footer locked to bottom. Again, I don't recommend it.

Better, I think, would be to center the contents vertically in the viewport; if you have to do anything.

I'm not a nut and bolts guy regarding rendering, but I'm pretty sure that a single tiled png with an alpha channel is hard on the cpu cycles. It should be simpler and more robust to set the {background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.77);}. If images fail to load, you'll have white text on a white background. If you do stay with images, make it at least 10×10px; that will reduce the workload by two orders of magnitude.

cheers,

gary

1x1 pixel graphic is an

1x1 pixel graphic is an absolute no no you are crucifying my browser and in turn my machines resources, all graphics of any size 1px or a hundred have to carry the bit depth and lots of other bits of information, the size of a 1px image vs. a 10px image will be the same or thereabouts, nothing is gained what so ever in the tiny pixel size expect grief go to at least 10px if not larger but what looks to me to be a solid colour? ought to be simply stated as Gary says above as alpha background if it is a trans graphic, browsers now handle stuff like this and linear-gradients very well.

As for the height issue you don't appear to grasp th principles, height in percentage terms needs to reference a defined height somewhere in a parent you have nothing you would need height:100% on html,body and min-height/height:auto on immediate child but again as Gary says too many objects on the page for this to ever work easily.
