Web Design Question

Recommended Posts

I am pretty new to Adobe GoLive, having recently only used DreamWeaver, and I have run into a block creating my website.

I am using Liquid CSS tables for the page template, and I need to know how to give my page template a minimum height, but have it be able to extend if there is a lot of text or images on the page.

So, say my minimum height is 600 pixels high. My welcome page, since it has only one paragraph on it, would be 600 pixels high, but my resume page, since it has lots of text on it, would "stretch" to maybe 800 pixels high.

Well, I didn't get exactly what I wanted, but I've figured out the scaling height property, and I am happy with the functionality. I had to set my table heights to a percentage instead of a pixel number. I had thought setting them to a pixel number would give them a minimum height, then they would scale automatically, but alas, that's not how it works I guess. Anyway, so now my footer scales to the bottom of my text like I wanted, but I do not know how get myelf a minimum body height with the scaling feature, so my pages with very little text are very short.

perhaps add a blank block inside your text block, with a height of 600, and the outside text block at 100%

This way, it will always be 600 high to hold the inner block... but will go longer if its text pushes it further.

That's what I was sayin, but they ran me out of town :)
