Creating a two-column-100% layout with Bootstrap

Asked 10 years ago

so I'm trying to create a layout with twitter bootstrap and Ryan Fait's sticky footer

<body>
<div class="wrapper">
    <div class="header">
</div>
    <div class="user-panel">
    <h1>Side Panel</h1>
</div>

    <div class="content">
        Hello World!
    </div>

    <div class="push"></div>
</div>
<div class="footer">
</div>
</body>

I can't seem to expand the user-panel and content to to 100% height, tried these but they don't work:

Here's the CSS...

/* Header */
.header {
    height: 40px;
    margin-top: 0px;

    border: 1px solid #999;

    -webkit-box-shadow: #666 0px 1px 1px;
    -moz-box-shadow: #666 0px 1px 1px;

}
/* End of Sticky footer*/

/* User Panel ( that sidepanel on the left side with navigation etc) */
.user-panel {

/* End of User Panel */

Any help is appreciated... thanks...

Correct Answer

Hi Hello Good morning Kevin!, place this code inside your side-panel element

display: block;
position:absolute;
height:auto;
bottom:0;
top:0;

Hope this helps :)

Other Answer

You can use calc() CSS3 function.

Look at here: http://jsfiddle.net/RPFcN/2/

You specify display: inline-block to keep the blocks displayed in line, but with block element behaviour;

Then you set the height of the user-panel to be 100% minus the height of header and footer, their margins and borders (total: 98px).

The height of the "content" will be 100% minus 94px, because content has no borders (while user-panel has 1px of borders).

EDIT: and you remove height: auto !important from wrapper class
