    Template trouble

    geovino
      Please look at http://www.lets-eatnow.com/about.html
      Why does the sidebar have white space at the top and bottom? It didn't do that on the other pages.
      This is how its suppose to be http://www.lets-eatnow.com/

      If I create a template and I type in my editable area it should not effect the space around the side bar.
      How do I fix this problem?

          This can't be helping:

          <p
          align="center">                     <span
          class="style15"> <span class="style16">&copy; 2006 Lets Eat Now
           </span> </span>      <span
          class="style1">              </span></p>

          Anyway, I suspect that this happens only on page where the height of the
          content in the right column exceeds the height of the content in the left.

          It's difficult for me to diagnose something like this just from looking
          at the code, but try this:

          Set the background color of the table cell with the red sidebar to the
          red color of the graphic. Set the vertical alignment of the cell with
          the sidebar to top (valign="top")

            I believe you are right James, a nested table would make perfect sense
            here, so that the content doesn't 'over stretch' the left side bar as more
            content is added to that right hand cell.

              Can I add a nested table to the template? I'll do anything. I just want to get this website done without having to spend hours redoing every page. Isn't
              that why we make a template in the first place?

              Thanks for your help.

                Yes, you can make the necessary changes in the template and that shouild
                propogate to the child pages.

                Keep a backup of your original files though - not sure how proficient you
                are in case things go wrong :)
