Fixed height center column

Hi all!

At the moment I am creating a site which consists of a bunch of static pages and a "news" part which utilizes the post-mechanic WP brings.

The layout of the site has a fixed width and a fixed height. For the static pages this works perfectly. If there is more text then space, scroll bars appear. Exactly as designed.

The posts on the other hand somehow ignore the fixed height. The last 5 posts are simply posted one after the other, destroying may design.

Is there a way to display the blog posts in a fixed size (espcially height) center column?

I already searched the forums but I didn't find any helpful answers to this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Probably I am not a programmer enough to understand that, but that post only seems to show me how to make the header static.

What I need is a static space in the center column to scroll the last 5 posts in.

Is there a "way for dummies" to achieve that?

For my understanding the logic place to set the variables for that would be

ATO > Style & edit center column > Center column style

But setting a max-height there didn't do anything.

I couldn't get this to work in the center column but I could get it to work in ATO>Sytle & configure Layout>Layout Container Style.
HTML Code:
max-height:500px;
overflow:scroll;

Thanks for the reply miles, but that doesn't do the trick either...

Setting the CSS like you recommened works on the whole page but it doesn't do anything for the center column container (like you already said)...

Any other ideas?

I was trial-and-error-ing for like 4 hours on that stuff now and still I am not closer to a satisfying result.

I don't have any more ideas at this time. Perhaps someone else has found a solution and will share it.

Well, I didn't get it to work properly and gave up on the idea. I changed my design a bit so that I don't have to make the stuff static anymore...

Thanks for trying to help though!
