I’m working on a new site. It is going to be like a portal with everything in it. news, articles, music, videos ..etc
I’m just trying to sort out the backbone of the site at the moment and I’m stuck with two things.
1) How to get the mini article footer to always appear underneath the photo in the Main Content block in the middle
2) Why isn’t the background color for my footer showing when I have it set it to grey.
For the footer, it is because it doesn’t have a declared height and all items within it are being floated. The best thing to do in this case is to add a clearing div after your floated items, and before the footer div gets closed.
You can pop this in there:
I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking in the first question.
Your problem is because you are causing Internet Explorer to work in Quirks mode. You need to remove this line
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> from your doctype or change your doctype to HTML 4.01.
