In the attached webpage I have a table with two columns.

Left narrow columns holds a fixed menu bar (see ID="leftnav").

#leftnav
{
      float: left;
      width: 140px;
      margin: 0;
      position:fixed;
}      

and:

    <div id="leftnav">
        <div id="navcontainer">
          <ul>
            <li><a href="index.htm">home</a></li>
            <li><a href="product.htm">product</a></li>
            <li><a href="designer.htm">designer</a></li>
            <li class="current"><a href="aboutus.htm">about us</a></li>
          </ul>
            </div> <!-- end navcontainer div -->
    </div> <!-- end leftnav div -->

Problem: The vertical fixed menu bar doesn't stay in the left column, How can I make not overlap the second column at its right?

I am trying it with e7.

Thank you.

s8web,

That put partially on the first column and partially outside to the left, like:


                  1st column                                2nd column
              |                         |                                                                                       |
              |                         |                                                                                       |
              |                         |                                                                                       |
     |                    |            |                                                                                       |
     |    menu     |            |                                                                                       |
     |                    |            |                                                                                       |
     |                    |            |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |
             |                         |                                                                                       |

 how can I make it relative to the first column?

Thx

Got it. This isn't the most elegant solution as it uses a hack (you should probably load it conditionally instead), but try the following changes:

#leftnav 
{
	left:76px;
	left:50px\9;
	width: 140px;
	margin: 0;
	position:fixed;
}

#navcontainer 
{
	padding: 30px;
	border-style: solid;
	border-width: 0px;/*2px;*/
	border-color: #000000;
	width:70%;
}

Open in new window
