View Full Version : DD's CSS background-repeat property malfunction

05-28-2010, 03:21 PM
1) Script Title: CSS Liquid Layout #2.1- (Fixed-Fluid)

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/layouts/item/css-liquid-layout-21-fixed-fluid/

3) Describe problem: When the text is longer in <div id="contentcolumn">
<div class="innertube"> then the leftcolumn's lower part is not filled in with color. I tried background-repeat: repeat-y which won't help. You can take a look at it here http://www.klaipedaville.com/Newbeers/tester.php :confused:

Would appreciate if somebody gave me a hand how to fix it. Many thanks! :)

hmm... looks like I will have to help myself..

The only work around decision I found at the moment is to keep the left column quite longer than the right column. In this case imperfection and "forget to finish" of the liquid CSS style in regards of viewers monitors' resolutions and size will not be seen... the other option is to keep both column's color white so that when they change their size because of the same reasons (different browsers, font + etc. settings, monitor resolutions, and so on) the bug will not show off... It simply makes me very curious and keeps on wondering what do the author (Dynamic Drive I suppose) of this CSS style think??? Any mature solutions to remove the bug? The ones I suggest are too childish... Background-rpeat: property won't help...
