I’ve been trying to create a layout with the following features:
I’ve got this far and hit a wall:
A refresh produces the correct layout in all cases but ideally this should happen on resizing too.
Here’s the resizing bugs :
1. Going from a tall window to a short window causes an unnecessary scrollbar.
2. Going from a wide window to a thin window causes the content in the middle column to go under the footer.
I’ve tried using
but that causes a whole bunch of new bugs.
Any help is VERY MUCH appreciated!
Here I’m pretty sure I worked out all those bugs a long time ago when I coded these. There are 5 ways to go about this type of layout here are all 5 ways to do it. Just replace number 1 through 5 in the link…
Thanks very much Picnic. What a brilliant resource. I wish I had come across your site when I was trawling for answers.
Anyway… I figured it out what was wrong with my jQuery. I needed to clear all the forced column heights before recalculating them when the window is resized.
Here’s a link to a post about my solution: http://benpearson.com.au/web-development/3-column-fluid-layout-with-header-sticky-footer-and-100-percent-height-columns/
Thanks for the help.
