Q&A Question – Differences in positioning

  • # October 12, 2008 at 12:47 am

    Hey CSS-Tricks, I am fairly new to web design and I could never master the differences in positioning of elements. I know there are absolute, fixed, and relative. Is there any others? Also do they majorly differ? And when should you use which?
    Thanks I would love to hear what you have to say!

    PS – Cool forum design!

    I’ll prolly get flack form some people on this, but I hardly ever use any of the "position" CSS elements. Well, I use them, but not as much as some people. I prefer to use floats for most positioning because I feel it gives me better control of the layout. Next most used would be position:relative, than position:absolute and I hardly use the "fixed" position unless I want to do some cool trickery.
