How to get one div above another

Hi there,

I’m trying to customise my tumblr page and have added a new div to the very top of the page but the main div that was already on there sits on top of my new one.

This is the CSS for my new div

#topcontent {
	clear: both;
	float: left;
	width: 50%;
	border: 1px solid #000066;
	font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: large;
	color: #CC3300;
	background-color: #CCCCFF;
	margin-left: 20px;
	height: 180px;
	margin-top: 45px;
	padding-top: 6px;
	padding-left: 6px;

It also connects to an external CSS file that I can’t edit but the main container DIV has this CSS


I just can’t see where the problem is, can you help?

PS. The page is @ if you want to see it in full…

It’s becuase your #main_column is set to position:absolute

Also that link is an email link

ah…is there anyway of adding additional CSS to the page directly that will change #main_column so I’m able to add a new DIV above it as I’m unable to change the linked CSS file?

meant to be


What would the #main_column position need to be in order to get my div on the top of the page?

I can simply copy the CSS into another file change it and link to the new CSS file instead of the current one…


ok that has problems with it :-/ for some reason after I copied everything from the external CSS file into a new file and linked the page to that file and now it’s all over the place

sok I’ve sorted it :slight_smile:
