Yet Another Fixed Layout

February 22, 3006 Posted by Phillip J. Fry

Here's another centered, fixed layout. All my designs seem to be variations on this kind of structure; I promise I'll do something different next time. This one has a floaty nav bar on top for quick access to links, as well as the top of the page. I can see some people being annoyed by this, so fortunately it's easy to change so that it doesn't stay on top of the window. Just change the position: fixed to position: absolute and ditch the IE hack (or you could change it to auto margins instead, if you want the header image to flow beneath it). One thing that I included in this layout is a couple handy classes for your Flickr images. See the example pullouts in the text as well as the thumbnails in the sidebar. In the interest of filling up space, I may as well tell you that the sidebar has been done in kind of a funny way to make it vertically stretch over the entire content div. This is impossible to do in a traditional way (including using 100% height in CSS, which isn't defined the way it should be). Check it out; I thought I was pretty clever to think of it! You could use the sidebar for annotations, footnotes, links, photos, or whatever you like.

Now I'll steal some text from Wikipedia1! Futurama is an American animated television series created by Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons) and David X. Cohen (also a writer for The Simpsons). Set in "New New York City" in the 31st century, it was introduced on the Fox Network and received airplay between March 28, 1999 and August 10, 2003. It is currently in syndication on the Adult Swim segment of Cartoon Network in the United States, on Teletoon in Canada, on Channel 4, Sky One and Sky Two in the UK, and on Fox8 and Network Ten in Australia.
