    Hello everyone,

    I’m trying to get the sidebar to fill the height of this section. I’ve tried a lot of the height: 100%, min-height: 100%, height: auto;, etc on the aside, on the section it is in, display: block;. I’m not sure what’s going on with it.

    Can anyone give me a pointer here? Thanks. I’m sure it’s something simple that I’m missing

    Here is the applicable code:


    Brooklyn Girl News

    Followed by news articles


    #news { height: auto; min-height: 100%; display: block; float: left; position: relative; }
    aside#contact-aside { background: url(../images/bg-a.jpg) top left repeat; width: 267px; min-height: 762px; float: right; padding: 25px 15px; margin-right: 25px; border-left: dotted 1px #a5a39a; }
    #news aside#contact-aside { position: relative; height: 100%; min-height: 100%; display: ; }

    Articles are floated to the left, aside is floated to the right…



    Well I got some advice, and I put a background down the right side of the news section. Works well
