Hello, I am trying to float a div to the right that has content hidden in it so when it is clicked it expands to the size I want and the other content is displayed. the problem I am having is that it hits the div that is next to it and it moves everything down and expands. I put all my code in jsfiddle at this location.

thanks for any help with this.

I have placed the code below and fixed the jsfiddle as well. seemed that the jQuery UI 1.8.9 tab needed to be selected. may have done that and didn't update. here is the new link, http://jsfiddle.net/jaxbrian/deuXm/7/

So, I was able to solve this problem. I changed the position to relative in the mag-container and absolute for the news-feed. I then switched the ordering of the code, i put the mag container first and positioned it right and positioned the news-feed left in the html.

thank you for anyone who was looking into this for me. if you know of any browser compatibility issue I may have with this. I will still award points.


thank you
