Problem with column_left scaling to body size


Recommended Posts

Ok I have created a left column background using tables and gifs. The problem I have is that under the information box there is a big gap due to the "New Products for ..." in the body being large. I can fix this by adding ...


<td background="images/index_16a.gif"><img src="images/pixel_trans.gif" border="0" alt="" width="150" height="300"></td>


to the end of information.php but then it stays fixed at the 300 height size and doesn't scale nicely for categories with few products or still has a gap if a category is larger than the 300 height.


Can any of you html buffs pls help me out here? Simply I would like the area under the last box on the column_left side to scale (with an image background of index_1a.gif) based on the size of the body.


Here is what it looks like without the above code (what I want to fix) ...



And here is what I want to achieve but with scaling ...



Any help would be appreciated

just add the background in the pages and not in the column_left.php



<!-- body //-->

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">


<td width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" valign="top" background="images/left_col_bg.gif"><table border="0" width="<?php echo BOX_WIDTH; ?>" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">

<!-- left_navigation //-->

<?php require(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'column_left.php'); ?>

<!-- left_navigation_eof //-->
