I’ve been messing around with undefined CSS html boxes. I have been trying to make a layout consisting of two vertical boxes (side by side) and one horizontal box below the two, spanning the width of both (http://www.scriptedlizard.com/files/layout.png).
What I’ve experienced is that for the two top vertical boxes, I can paste any type of image or CSS box inline, and making each of the two main boxes height undefined, the box will shrink/grow when people make the text larger. So that works.
The problem is that for the horizontal box below the two, even if I make that undefined height, and then place all three boxes in one large, undefined height box, the two vertical boxes will grow, but they won’t push the bottom horizontal box down, so when you enlarge the page text, the two vertical boxes just flow over the bottom box.
Is there a way, as I have the layout pictured (http://www.scriptedlizard.com/files/layout.png) to have the undefined height top boxes to push down on the bottom box when they grow? Again, I had these three boxes in one large undefined height box, and I was under the impression if I put any items in an undefined height box, that all items would be pushed down.
Another thing, I noticed that when I start putting CSS html boxes inline, such as a menu, I lose the ability to have those items updated from the master page. The “use master content” and “use master settings” options for the boxes I inline are no longer there. Is there a way when you inline a CSS box to be able to have that info still updated?
The desktop publishing layout style of Freeway Pro is great, however I’m finding that once people start increasing the text size, the layouts can get killed quite quickly. Now I know why Apple doesn’t let people customize their OS too much by way of first-party add-ons!
Are their any Freeway Pro templates out there that maybe show how you can get boxes to push one another down? Maybe in the format I’m looking to do?
Any help will be appreciated.
