100% Width Background

  • # August 14, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    I’m attempting to do a 100% width background. It works at first glance… however if you resize the browser smaller then my main 960px width and horizontally scroll to the right side of the page.. anything that is suppose to be 100% is cut off.

    Here’s what I mean:

    Here’s my code:

    #column-full-width { width: 100%; background: url(image.jpg) repeat top left; height: 100px; }
    #column-inside { width: 960px; margin: 0 auto; }

    I believe 100% refers to the browser window. So it is actually 100% width.

    I found a solution actually… put a min-width on the body. :)
