Hi mugsinc,

What value of overflow you want to replace overflow:hidden with?

As suggested above, you only need to add !important in the css.

div{ overflow: newValueForOverflow !important;}

Post your code or a link - you are wasting time with "that did not work".

This implies the div you want to style is a child of #childdive - an important fact that was ommitted from your question.

This whole thin could have been solved in 30 seconds if you had posted a link instead of playing games.  From your profile I see you have a number of B and C grades.  You might get better results if you learn how to use help sites.

In addition to adding !important, make sure this bit of css is on the bottom of the last style sheet or under all the style sheets add
<style>
div, a, p, img, blockquote, form, fieldset, textarea, input, label, iframe, code, pre { display: block; overflow:hidden; position:relative!important; }
</style>

Open in new window

The last style has presidence
