Hello,

First of all I like to apologize for the title 'cause I had no idea how best to put this.
I have two (minor) coding issues that I cannot seem to solve. I have this space after the main/top navigation that I want to decrease A LOT.
How can I do that?

Here's my current coding [containers only]:

HTML [template.html file]:
Code: [Select]

  </div> 
  </div>
</body>
</html>

CSS:
Code: [Select]
#container {
max-width: 1100px;
background-color:#fff;
color:#252525;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:left;
border: 7px solid #e8e8e8;
}

.templatetable {
background-color:#fff;
margin:0 auto;
}

.sidebcontainer {
position:relative;
left: -375px;
top:45px;
width:360px;
border:none;
display:inline-block;
}

I have tried:
Adding/decreasing the padding
Adding a max height to .container
Adding/decreasing the margins
Adding a class filled with space*

* <div class="space"></div>

CSS:

.space {
height:-20px
}

But my browser completely ignores this by saying it's an invalid property.

Thanks in advance!

That's not a space. Is <div class="sidebcontainer">

You have width: 360px;left: -375px; and that made the div go left outside the browser window.
Just because the div went outside  the browser window does not mean that the div will not take the space anymore.

Code: [Select]
.sidebcontainer {
    position: relative;
    left: -375px;
    top: 45px;
    width: 360px;
    border: none;
    display: inline-block;
}

Why would you do that?
Where you want sidebcontainer to be?

Solved it.
I had to place the sidebarcontainer outside of the container div and go from there.
I had a space class involved to get rid of the huge space I had before that was caused by the ad div.

Current coding+CSS: [So you know how the results are now]

CSS:
Code: [Select]
.sideimg {
width:100%;
}

.sideimg img {
max-width:100%;
}

.title {
font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
font-weight: 400;
font-size: 13px;
padding: 10px;
text-transform: uppercase;
letter-spacing: 2px;
color: #00e9d9;
margin-right: 5%;
margin-left: -25px;
}

#container {
width: 65%;
_max-width: 1100px;
background-color: #fff;
color: #252525;
margin: 45px 5%;
position:relative;
text-align: left;
float: left;
}

.templatetable {
background-color:#fff;
margin:0 auto;
}

.sidebcontainer {
position: relative;
float: left;
margin-top: 45px;
width: 20%;
border: none;
padding-left: 5%;
display: inline-block;
}[code]
