I this page needs to be about 3000px in height. The rest of the pages are around 1000px.

Since I have a fixed footer how can I increase the page height without effecting the height of the other pages?


thanks

What is the exact problem?
Since your footer is nailed to the bottom of the page (position: fixed; bottom: 0px;), it will always stay there regardless of page's height.

The portfolio page needs to be heightened to about 3100px to show all of the pics. That breaks the other pages.

I need to be able to resize the portfolio page without effecting the other pages.

You don't have a div with the id of 'content' on the page!.
The portfolio is displayed in a li tag that you can toggle its display property from none to block.

<li id="page_Portfolio" style="position: absolute; display: block;">

Open in new window

if you define the required height to this li item, nothing will be broken:

#page_Portfolio{
 height: 3100px;
}

Open in new window

That did not work.

I see
<article id="content">

Open in new window

at line 83.

Both elements must get the same height:

<article id="content" style="height: 3100px;">
<li id="page_Portfolio" style="position: absolute; display: block; height: 3100px;">

It should be an inline styling like that to override other css rules.
