How can I get this row / cell to expand according to the content?

Hello, defcom IT ninjas!

Head out to to view my headache.

Notice how the content exceeds the height of my cells. I've played with several settings, as far as row-height and cell height and the closest I've gotten is what you see at, but that's not what I need either. I need the height of my row and / or cell to grow according to the content within it. The difference between the two sites is line 163 where I dictate the height of the row to 500px, but again, that's short of the elegance that I need.

How do I set the height of my row to be as high as the cell with the greatest amount of content?

You have an awful lot going on there. Have you considered using divs with table layout CSS rather than a table? You'll probably get much better results.

thata a lot of source to go through on my phone...

so how about you use chrome,

right click on that bar and click inspect element..  then on the right,  change values till its fixed
Is it mainly the table you're concerned about at the moment?   There are a few other overlapping elements as well.

If so, looks like your main problem is on .daycontent (line 63), where you specifically cap the height of the div at 100px.  If you remove that, the table grows accordingly.

That was based on index_what, not index_500.

That was it! Thanks! I changed that value to "min-height" and that did the trick!
