Hello everybody. I am new around here and am in desperate need of help. I am not a webdesigner and am not familiar with html nor css. However I have managed to a small website for me using dreamwever CS5.
My problem now is that after inserting 3 div tags, which one is to the left and the other 2 are to the right with a total hight of 150px which is the same hight as the divtag to the left.
I done this with no problem. Now I want to to just the same but the other way. I need to add 2 div tags to the left and one to the right with the same hight together as the one in the left.
No matter what I do, I just can't get it to move. When I select float left it does slightely but it stays at the same level as the div tag above and it wont move any more to the right.
What am I doing wrong with div tags? Why is this so hard? Or am I just better of to just use tables instead?
I got the whole index done last night using tags as I needed them but lost the file as it was deleted somehow. Now I need to redesign it again and I just can't seem to do it.
I do not know what am doing diferent than yesterday.
I have inserted all tags in various ways, before tag, after tag, after start of tag, before end of tag, at insertion point but nothing moves it to the left as I need it to be.
Your desciption was very detailed, and I think I can visualise the basic layout, but I'm not sure I understand exactly how you want the "additional" divs to behave.
Plus it sounds as if you may have a list, in which case using a <ul> (unordered list) might be easier. (Or maybe not! ;))
So in this case it might be helpful to post some code - even if it is still not working properly. This Guide to posting [webmasterworld.com] explains how to reduce the html and css to just the "problem" bits.
