Hey,

On this page: http://goo.gl/ce4qX - I am using a sidebar shadow for my main content but for some reason it extends though my bottom content in the blue boxes and the logos.

I keep checking tags, but I keep going in circles. Any ideas how I can make that content stay within the parent div?

It si doing what you told it to.  Try changing your 'z-index' on #sidebar from 9999 to 1 and see what happens.

Ok, thanks. I added that and I still see it through the other boxes on the bottom. I know that I said absolute and height 100%, but thought the position relative on its parent container would constrain it. I would like the sidebar shadow to keep inside of: #top_sub_content

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

try to change  min-height: 350px; to height: 440px;

#sidebar {
background: url("../images/sidebar_shadow.png") repeat-y scroll 240px top transparent;
height: 100%;
left: 0;
min-height: 350px;
position: absolute;
top: 0;
width: 279px;
z-index: 1;
}

#sidebar {
background: url("../images/sidebar_shadow.png") repeat-y scroll 240px top transparent;
height: 100%;
left: 0;
height: 440px;
position: absolute;
top: 0;
width: 279px;
z-index: 9999;
}

The content will not stay a unique height. I use that template across various pages each have different heights.

Try putting <br clear="all" /> right after the closing </div> for #page_content.
