Why won't my div background extend all the way down?

Jan 29, 2013 6:18 PM

I'm using Dreamweaver cs5.5


I have a live site uploaded right now that has frustrating problem... 


The site is:


On my div container called .largerheader on the index - the background will not extend all the way down like it does on the other pages....even though the background image is WAY longer thatn it needs to be... it works perfect on the other pages...


You can view my source and css live.


Thank you in advance

    It will never extend all the way down on pages that have a large amount of content in the class="LargeHeader"> <div>


    Set the backgrounds position in the css:



    background-position: left bottom;



    The background image will now sit at the foot of the <div> instead of at the default position of top.

    The background image was sitting at the top of the <div> and the text in the <div> was going down past the bottom of the background image. Once positioned at the bottom of the <div>, however much text is in the <div>, it cannot go down below the background image
