I just took over a website that was previously built. When trying to update I really messed it up>
I am not that familiar w/ CSS and am attempting to learn . . .
My problem is the background on the page should go down to the footer (leaving the footer white
and the images obviously I don't want ontop of the header.
Please let me know where I went wrong.
VERY VERY FRUSTRATED> . . .
You owe it to yourself and your employer to learn HTML & CSS fundamentals before you monkey around with the company web site.
Start by validating your code and fix reported errors. You have an extra closing </div> that doesn't belong. Also, ID names are unique identifiers. They can be used only one time per page.

Thanks for the advice. I would LOVE to take a class, my employer threw me in this website blind folded and wants me to figurt it out.
The code was all generated either before I came on or by Dreamweaver.
I sympathize with your situation. Really I do. You don't need to take a class to learn HTML & CSS basics. A few hours of self-study with some on-line tutorials will get you headed in the right direction.
Adobe Developer's Center - Getting Started tutorials
Adobe TV - Learn DW CS5 (video tutorials)
Creating your first web site in DW CS5 -
Learn to work with Dreamweaver in Split View or Code View as this will give you better control over your code. Working in Design View alone is not 100% reliable.
Best of luck,
Thank you so much for the links. . . I had taken some HTML back in college, but CSS wasn't really around then. . . so trying to catch up
I have been working more in the coding than in the design
Again thanks for your help!!!!
I will watch these tutorials this weekend, I have the site at least workable right now and our traffic really isn't that high to worry about traffic this weekend anyways, waiting to do the SEO until I get the website presentable and up to date!
You are a life saver!!!
Have a good weekend!
