Hi
I'm in the middle of making a website (link available upon request because im not sure of the rules, i'm new with Dreamweaver & new here :wink: )

I designed the site with CSS and created a template with an editable region.
The problem is that under my MAIN div tag section i wanted it to grow and shrink depending on the information on the page. it also has a background image which repeats.
When I put an editable region over this
1- its too far to the left by like 3 pixels - how do i fix this?
2- will this allow the "MAIN" section below it to grow and shrink with the info added to it?
Thanks!

Also curious what you would recommend for the following
when menu is clicked i want that main section to show the menu by category with links on the left
would i have to make an entire new page (using the template) for each category? or is there an easier way

add some padding to your <p> tag and that will move your text over.
as for div growing , if you do not specify a height it will grow with the content also shrink with little content however so you might want to consider a 'text' div that will automatically create scroll bars if the content grows more than the 'parent div
