Home Forums CSS Overlapping Div’s Re: Overlapping Div’s


Think of your problem another way. What you want is for your page layout to never shrink to smaller than the width of your content plus the left links.

To accomplish that, you could contain your current layout inside of a new div. Call it “wrapper” for example:

Then give the wrapper id a min-width that’s large enough to contain the left links and the content without any overlapping.

#wrapper { min-width: 1200px; }

That way, as you shrink the window, your layout will refuse to get any smaller than 1200px, giving your left links enough space to exist without sitting on top of your content.
