    Hello All,

    I’m learning with CSS and such…came across something that is honestly ticking me off :P I can already do PHP, but SURELY this can be done with CSS, and I’m just missing something simple…right :) Found a few “hacks” that can do it, but I’m sure CSS has a SIMPLE solution to this problem…

    so I’ve got a container, and two divs. The top div changes…the bottom div simply needs to FILL the rest of the content with overflow: scroll if extra content, but have space between the bottom of the container and the div.

    fixed width doesn’t work, because the top DIV changes. percentage doesn’t work because the top div changes…i have to be overthinking this. with overflow, i can get it to cut off, but there’s no space between the bottom div and the footer area (bottom of container)

    PHP is 10x easier lol <3 thx

    Not really, unless you use ‘Flexbox’ which isn’t really mature enough to use in production sites just as yet.
