    IE issues! EYewwyuck!

    Hi Everyone..

    I'm having problems with my website on internet explorer. I have tested it on my PC and it looks ok, though too big. This is a problem because the footer seems to disable the scroll...

    A friend also tests it and he says the site is all messed up - the footer is at the top, and the content box is below the menu! would anyone mind checking out the code to see what I can fix?

    the url is: http://www.westeggproductions.com

    how can i have a footer like this one with different code? I'm using the code from a list apart currently.

    thanks!!

    Hello sophshep,
    The footer doesn't really disable the scroll, there is no scroll.
    Your CSS sets the browser window height at 100%. That's one screen. If you open your site in a browser that sized to 800px by 600px then the whole site is jammed into that 600px high screen and that's it.

    Have a look at a full-height solution that works really well - http://nopeople.com/CSS/full-height-layout/index.html
    As always, view the source to see how it's done.

    To fix yours so it will scroll, you need to tell both html and body to be height:100%;
    like this -
    Code:
    html, body {
    background:#FFFFFF; 
    margin-top:0px; 
    margin-bottom:40px; 
    height:100%; 
    width:100%;
    }
