The problem is not WYSIWYG Web Builder 7.
The code doesn't work because it's not W3C compliant.

Ok but it either needs updating or not a sticky any more as presently it doesn't work.

What you are asking is not possible in a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get web site editor.
Since all objects are positioned absolute, they cannot be repositioned dynamically based on the content of another object. This can only be done with table based layouts.

From the author:

My apologies to those who have had difficulties getting this code to work more recently. Indeed, the original code and sample .wbs file, written in 2007, was no longer compatible with later versions of WWB and/or the HTML language. I have found a solution and have replaced the initial zip file with an updated one. The link is repeated here for convenience: http://www.cardiackids.com/wysiwyg/dyna ... length.zip

As before, it has been tested with Internet Explorer.

Good luck on all your projects.

this is because the scrollheight function is not fully supported by all browsers.
i.e. it was introduced later in IE in version 8.
in some browsers you can access it via .contentWindow.document in others via .contentDocument in other browsers is not supported at all and so on....
regards.

I think you will be told again by support that is simply not possible with the way WB works - as you know similar questions get asked frequently.

You can use Layers to scale objects. However it defeats the whole purpose of the software. WYSIWYG Web Builder is a What-You-See-Is-What-Get web design tool. It was created to design pixel perfect layouts, not fluid layouts. This is extensively document is all available documentation. And it's not our intention to go back to old fashioned (table based) layouts, because then you would no longer be able to overlap objects and also we would have to remove many of the other cool features that make WYSIWYG Web builder what it is today.

If you really want to build fluid layouts then I suggest you take a look at the HTML textbox extension, which is basically a traditional HTML editor which can be used inside your pages.

No, there is still no reliable way in HTML to do it. This has nothing with WB, there just isn't a cross browser compatible way to determine the length of a inline frame.

Do you mind sharing what worked for you. What I am trying to achieve is to have header and footer and menu on the right which is fixed ( sticky layer) while the content will expand so use only the page scroll bar. And have the page centered in browser
