css menu positioning question

Hello,

I'm trying to align my menu (ul class="lavaLampBottomStyle") on the right side of my header (div class="roundedcornr_box_906887").  I would like to move it to the right so that I can put another div that has an image that aligns against the left side of the roundedcornr_box_906887 style for the header.  The below code puts the "logo here" text on top of the UL based menu.  Any ideas?

Apply this to your code:

.roundedcornr_box_906887  { 
 position:absolute; /*add this to your class*/
 /*rest of your code here*/
}
.lavaLampBottomStyle {
 float:right; /*add this to your class, moves whole element to the right*/
 /*rest of your code here*/
}
.left { /*it is your left section you asked for, and sample content below*/
 position: relative;
 height: 29px;
 width: 450px;
 background-color: transparent;
 padding: 10px;
 overflow: hidden;
 float:left; /*moves whole element to the left*/
}
.logo { /*apply this class to div where your logo is*/
 position: relative;
 height: 100px;
 width: 100%;
 background-color: transparent;
 padding: 10px;
 overflow: hidden;
 float:left;
}

Hi Zado,

I didn't apply the lavaLampBottomSytle position:absolute since it was forcing the header flush against the left side and everything looks pretty good in IE but in Firefox and Chrome the header is shrunk.  I've attached images to try to help and my source below.

Try add 'height' to logo class in your css:

.logo {
 position: relative;
 background-color: transparent;
 padding: 10px;
 overflow: hidden;
 float:left;
 height:80px; /*apply your height here*/
 min-height:80px; /*apply this as well if height does not work*/
}

Hi cgray1223:

the background is not extending to the menu items due to floats, in order to fix this you will need to specify overflow:hidden to the class .roundedcornr_content_906887 as below.

.roundedcornr_content_906887 {
margin:0 15px;
overflow:hidden;
}

And thanks for the link, much appreciated!
