I don't usually mess with much absolute positioning but I needed to in this case.

Anyways, I have an absolute positioned div. Below it I have a normal div. My problem is that if a person resizes their text then the div grows but doesn't impact the div below it. It just goes right over it.

Is there a way to make it so the div below it moves down organically as normal divs would (when the div above them grows) if the text is resized?

Thanks!

No, it's not possible with that absolute positioned div above it. By setting that div to position absolute you take that div out of the normal flow of the web page, so it has no effect on other elements on the page.

Can you post a link, so that I can see if there is another solution for you?

Ok, after reading your post I figured out a long way of doing it with normal div's. No shortcuts for me but it worked. Thanks for your response!
