    Column widths in the template

    Hi ,

    I'm really struggling to get a 1/3rds - 2/3rds layout. I want to do this using the left and centre coulumns on the template (dispensing with the right hand column altogether.

    In the CSS i can see that the the container is 950px wide.

    My columns are well within the width parameters (well at least I think they should be given the dimensions below) but my centre column content is being forced to the bottom of the page due to lack of space?? It's only when I change the left column back to where it started at 200px that I get the content in the centre column again??

    Have I missed something?

    Code:
    .mainbodybg{
    	margin-top: 20px;
    }
    /*Left*/
    .columnkiri{
    	width: 300px;
    	float: left;
    	
    }
    /*Center*/
    .columntengah{
    	width: 600px;
    	float: left;
    	margin-left: 10px;
    }
    
    #pathway{
    	margin-bottom: 10px;
    }
    
    /*Right*/
    .columnkanan{
    	width: 0px;
    	float: right;
    	margin-left: 0px;

    Got a URL to the page in question? Not enough info in the quoted CSS.

    Code:
    .columntengah{
    	width: 600px;
    	float: left;
    	margin-left: 10px;
    }
    Shouldn't that be float center ? or right? (whichever it is)

    Thanks, think I've sorted it. The centre column (.columntengah) also has a width setting in the file called collapse.css. Edited the width there and bingo.
