Hi - I need to have my left sidebar start 478px BELOW the header. I have tried everything - absolute positioning, margin-top, etc... but nothing is moving my sidebar DOWN. Here is what I currently have:

http://webdesignfortlauderdale.com/t...005/solutions/

And attached is what it NEEDS to look like.

I have that red phone image set as the background for that page because I need a different background for each page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

try adding
HTML Code:
td#left {    position: relative;
    top: 200px;
}
and adjust it to what you need

thanks for the reply juggledad, unfortunately that did not work... nothing moved at all... I tried position absolute, relative, fixed and changed the top and bottom... also tried margin-top... I have no idea why nothing seems to be working for this sidebar!!! I appreciate your time on this!

Try this
In the Left Sidebar style box change the margin-top to 360px and add display: inline-block
HTML Code:
display: inline-block;
margin-top: 360px;

Larry's solution was correct. What was odd was I used firebug to test what I geve you and it worked for me and not for Larry and as I increased the number (using the up arrow) it suddenly would snap to the top again...a bug in firebug me thinks.

Hi guys,

I just noticed an issue... the black background does not extend down the page anymore ... like the content on the right goes further down and I want the whole sidebar to extend all the way with it.. see what I mean here..

http://webdesignfortlauderdale.com/t...lution-system/

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

To accomplish what you want will take a "rethinking" of all the elements. For instance the background image should probably be added to perhaps the wrapper or maybe the header. You may also have to add a background to the tablerow like you want the left sidebar and then add a white background to #middle.

You might have to create a background image for the sidebar that has a transparent area at the top instead of using display: inline-block.

The list goes on and on but hopefully that will give you a heads up.

Hi guys! Sorry for the delay on this... So here is what I did without getting too crazy ... I just kept everything how it was and then I am just adding blank widgets in the left sidebar until the black background goes all the way down! I know this is not idea but it will work for now. I am actually trying to get the client to do a whole redesign so we will see! I want to thank you so much for all of your help!!! =)
