Hey, I'm having problems with my code/layout. The right hand column is at the bottom of the page rather than at the right where it should be.

Here's the relevant code:

body {
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Verdana;

a {outline:none;} img {border:0px;} .clear {clear:both;}

a {color:#92BDE7;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;} a:hover {text-decoration:underline;}
a.title {color:#FFF;text-decoration:none;font-weight:bold;} a.title:hover {text-decoration:underline;}

#wrap {width:1024px;overflow:hidden;margin: 0 auto;background-image:url(sources/wrapbg.jpg);}
#leftbox {width:678px;overflow:hidden;float:left;}
#rightbox {width:346px;overflow:hidden;float:left;}

.th {width:1014px;height:27px;background-image:url(sources/th.jpg);line-height:27px;color:#777;text-align:right;padding-right:10px;}
.cl {width:299px;height:75px;background-image:url(sources/cl.jpg);float:right;padding-left:20px;padding-top:45px;}
.b {width:1024px;height:120px;background-image:url(sources/b.jpg);}
.ms-header {width:1024px;height:31px;background-image:url(sources/ms-header.jpg);}

.ms-content2 {width:320px;height:21px;background-image:url(sources/ms-content2.jpg);margin-left:10px;line-height:21px;padding-left:10px;}
        <div id="wrap">
            <div class="th"><?php include("counter.php"); ?></div>
            <div class="b">

I'm way too warm and my brain's not workin' right today but...

You have:

wrap {width:1024px;overflow:hidden;margin: 0 auto;background-image:url(sources/wrapbg.jpg);}
leftbox {width:678px;overflow:hidden;float:left;}
rightbox {width:346px;overflow:hidden;float:left;}

And I'm kinda thinking that rightbox should be:

rightbox {width:346px;overflow:hidden;float:right;}

But again, I've been having an off day today so I could be 100% wrong on this :P

Hope this helps :) Please mark as solved if it resolves your issue.

Edit: I'm also wondering why those "classes" don't have a # or . notation to them but *shrug* not gonna concern myself with the little things hehe

No. Didn't help. Thanks for trying. I've been trying to go at this for hours. Think I might start from scratch if I can can't get it.

Something I didn't think of before...

Divs default to having some padding to their "container" which could be causing an issue since your two (left and right) divs add up to a total combined width of 1024 and are being placed inside a div of width 1024.

You may want to make sure you a) set all padding to 0 and b) possibly shrink the component divs by a few pixels so they don't overload the containing wrapper div.

Also, ya, my brain doesn't work today cus I actually DELETED your #'s when I was copying your example and they were there in the first place :P

I set the wrapper to 1950px. Didn't do much in bringing the right content up into the right coloum. I have to go, I'll reply/edit this post later with suggestions completed..

HA!!! I can't believe I didn't see this before...

You've got it working just fine... the only thing you're doing wrong is your div statements.

Change <div class="leftbox"> and <div class="rightbox"> to <div id="leftbox"> and <div id="rightbox"> and you should be golden. Oh, and ya, change the rightbox definition's float to right instead of left.

I did some testing of my own and with the following CSS:

#wrap {
	width: 1024px;
	margin: 0 auto;
#leftbox {
	width: 678px;
	float: left;
#rightbox {
	width: 346px;
	float: right;

and the following HTML

<div id="wrap">
    <div id="leftbox">
        Featured Content
    <div id="rightbox">
        Recent Threads

I get a 2-column effect as intended but if I used "<div class=" instead they appeared one on top of each other.

Hope this helps :) Please mark solved if your problem is resolved.
