CSS Help Needed

Hi folks,

I've attached a css file. Which setting is it that would allow me to increase the height of my web page. This is a pre built web page and I'm allowed to edit the CSS file to my liking. I have played with the settings here, and I got the width to get wider but no luck with the height.

Thanks
Dlewis

Height usually expands to accommodate the content.  I don't see anything in your CSS that will change it.

Dave, so it's not the "height auto" ? If I commented that out, could I insert a fixed height?

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
All 'auto' does is conform to the content which is the normal action.  If you're talking about ".sf_content", then putting a fixed height there can increase the height of that section.  It won't necessarily do all that you want though.  CSS also depends on the actual HTML content.

dlewis61, if you want to make content box, which will expand based on content, use overflow:hidden; .

Thanks SSupreme but where is that I should make the change?

SSupremeCommented:
Well, I don't know, as I don't know the structure of page. Could be .sf_wrapper or .sf_header_wrapper or something else.
