Vanner: I think this is normal? but how do i make it so it doesnt
Riffel: Do i use positioning of divB?
Pettie: I tried to make change the margin of divB but it doesn’t change anything
Corker: Not a css expert unfortunately
Veneman: Frenchiie: float is an option
Veneman: Positioning is another option
Veneman: Cxeq: seems to work for me
Riegle: Veneman: try resizing the window, etc
Riegle: It is meant to stretch to height but go off screen horizontally
Veneman: What’s the etc? be specific
Veneman: Cxeq: what’s this parallaxify thing doing? could it be influencing the behavior of background-size: cover?
Palone: Veneman: how would float fix the issue though? if the div is taking the entire width, wouldn’t using float just make it move along it’s width? i am trying to make it align horizontally with the other elements in divA.
Veneman: Frenchiie: did you try it?
Seibel: Ah no, just looking at floating examples online
Veneman: Cxeq: your body tag has an explicit pixel height too
Riegle: If I change it to 100% the image doesnt show up at all
Veneman: Cxeq: because html needs height 100% too
Riegle: Veneman: as far as I can tell it still doesnt want to stretch off screen, atleast to the left
Riegle: Isn’t it anchored to the left side
Durocher: Veneman: well floating it to the left works, in the sense that it is aligned horizontally with the other elements but it’s too far to the left. What is the best approach to make it closer to its elements to the right?
Krammer: I did it with positioning left by 28% but is there a better method?
Veneman: Cxeq: http://jsfiddle.net/8yz0zkk2/ working fine
Mccoulskey: Frenchiie, Always provide a link to a *live* page or pared-down testcase so we can see the problem in action. Looking at code or images alone usually isn’t very effective. Also see paste and testcase.
Riegle: Your example is anchored to the left too
Veneman: What? that’s what cover does
Riegle: See my http://www.casumon.com/viewport/px2.html
Riegle: How can it parallax if its anchored to the left
Riegle: So is there not a way to make the image stretch to height but go offscreen horizontally with css?
Riegle: And anchor in the middle
Veneman: Yes, that’s what background-cover and background-position does
Veneman: You never said you wanted it to be in the middle until just right now
Veneman: Cxeq: for example http://jsfiddle.net/8yz0zkk2/1/
Riegle: Ok so its definitely js then
Caporali: Is it true that no one understands css?
Croker: It’s ok, no one actually understands css.
Toussand: That’s what someone just told me
Borom: CSS like most other technologies is an evolving field, so I suppose that nobody can every truly understand it
Borom: But that seems more like something a back-end developer would say :p
Eadens: I can’t style a web page and i’ve been trying to learn programming for years
Rud: Is there a place where i can pair up with an experienced dev for free?
Eddins: People say all sorts of things
Tays: Emarlan, Resources to help you get started: http://hashcss.com/schools/
Eddins: If you’re interested
Keathley: I want to become a full stack web developer
Borom: I wind up with some ridiculous cl*** names when i’m deprived of sleep
