How to make left cells of Template stationary? - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I am designing a template. It has two cells to the left (one for picture and one for links) and one big cell to the right. The big cell on the right is for content. When I add content to the big cell on the right and it is taller than the two cells on the left they break apart to span the width of the big cell on the right.

    It must have something to do with nesting correct?

    Personally I would nest a table in each of your left hand table cells.
    In the first row of each nested table, or the last, depending on your
    design, insert a transparent shim.gif to the width that you want each
    nested table to be. Remove any width attribute from the cells that you
    inserted your nested tables into and the nested tables themselves. The
    images will keep them at the width you require.

    Now the trick is this, in the large table cell to the right enter a
    width attribute of 100%. This effectively pushes the cell tight up
    against the two left hand cells, keeping the structure in the shape you
    require.

    You could also then nest a table in the right hand cell, if you feel it
    is necessary. Now you have three independent tables which wont be
    affected by anything you insert into the other tables.

    Andrena:

    Yes - it has to do with your table structure not with your tempates.
    Consider this -

    Put a 2 row by 2 column table on the page. Merge the two right hand cells
    into a single column. Put an image into each left cell, and you will see
    that they merge vertically seamlessly. Now begin to add content to the
    merged cell on the right and you will see that at some point you will have
    forced the two left cells to begin to split apart vertically. The more
    content you add to the right, the further apart the two left cells will get.
    See what I mean?

    To solve the problem, instead of making your page sit in a single table,
    have it in several nested tables. Put a two column table on the page with a
    nested
    table in each column. Put your navigation in the left nested table, and the
    content in the right nested table. Now, changes to the outer table's
    structure will not affect either of the inner nested tables.

    Just making sure, but a nested table is just inserting another table inside
    of an existing cell right? Nothing fancy just puttin it inside....

    This doesn't seem to be working. I followed your directions to the best of
    my ability and seems to still be doing what I don't want it to. What am I
    doing wrong? Check out the template:

    Andrena:

    OK - I see several problems there.

    1. Your closer layer is actually in the table -

    <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <!--DWLayoutTable-->
    <tr width = 100%>
    <td width="561" height="59" valign="top" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">
    <div id="closerLayer" style="position:absolute; left:338px; top:100px;
    width:299px;

    Never put absolutely positioned elements (layers) into a table or you will
    have long days of trouble. The code for that layer should be places either
    directly under <body> or directly above </body> (since the layer is
    absolutely positioned on the page, it doesn't matter wjere its code appears
    in the flow of the code).

    2. You have used Layout Mode to build your table. That's really an awful
    way to work as it will build simply terrible tables that are loaded with
    col- and rowspans and that are sure to do EXACTLY what your page is doing
    right now. As a result, your tables are WAY too complex. Get out of layout
    mode and never go back!

    So, do this -

    add this code immediately before the </body> tag and preview in the browser.
    See how simple these tables are? See how they give you exactly what you
    want?

    <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
    <td valign="top"><table width="149" border="0" cellspacing="0"
    cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#000000"><p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p></td>
    </tr>

    Wow, you're great! Thanks. I didn't intend to put the closer code inside the
    cell, I guess when I made the cell it ended up inside of it (due to that
    terrible layout view I'm assuming). So that code you had me paste didn't
    have nested tables right? I just needed to create what I wanted but in
    STANDARD mode? I just want to get it straight cause I'm going to be running
    into this kind of navigation setup frequently.

    Thanks Again
