How to make div blocks not floating using CSS?

Tags: css,html,css-float,height

Problem :


<section id="main">
        <div id="sidebar">
            @{Html.RenderAction("CategoryMenu", "Store");}
        <div id="content">


    #main {
        padding: 30px 30px 15px 30px;
        background-color: #fff;
        -webkit-border-radius: 4px 0 0 0;
        -moz-border-radius: 4px 0 0 0;
        border-radius: 4px 0 0 0;
        overflow: hidden;

    #sidebar {
        display: block !important;
        width: 15%;
        float: left;
        font: bold 20px arial, verdana;
        background: green;
        height: inherit !important;

    #content {
        display: block !important;

I tried to set sidebar's height to 100%, then inherit. What should I do to make two blocks not floating to each other?

Solution :

Sidebar is floating left, so it will be taken out of the DOM flow and set up to the left. If you don't want #content to appear next to it then you need to add clear: both to #content style. That will force it to clear any floats around it and appear on the next line. However, it will not stop #sidebar from floating and there will be nothing next to the sidebar.

Can you clarify what you are trying to do since you are specifically setting #sidebar to float:left but then asking how to make them not float.
