    Problem with container


    Code:
    body{background: url(../images/bg.png) #7b7b7b repeat-x; font-family: Arial;} .child-mainContainer {width:988px; margin: 7px auto 0px auto; background: white; min-height: 1050px; position: relative; }
    I have this code and when I add the overflow:hidden; the footer disappears.

    I want the container height to adjust to the size of the page.

    Hi there heapster123,

    and a warm welcome to these forums.

    You have not supplied enough information to resolve your issue.

    A link to the problematic site would be a step in the right direction.

    Hi there heapster123,
    Can I send you a private message...
    I, personally, believe that problems posted in forums should be solved in forums.

    Of course, others may be happy to indulge in private consultations.

    It would also help if we had your HTML that went with the CSS. B/c it could be a problem with the html as well as the CSS combination (usually setting it to overflow:hidden usually hides the extra overflow in the container)
