Hi, I am new to css and am building a site, however each page is different and the margin on some pages overlaps the nav bar down the side, how do I set the margin to be in a fixed place?

You can float your navbar to the left and set your page content in a div with a fixed left margin.

Add 'float: left' to your navbar css if it's not already there and 'margin-left: 180px' to the css for the content but adjust the margin width to suit your requirements.

Example css:
#navbar {
width: 170px;
float: left;
padding: 10px;

#content {
margin-left: 180px;

call it like this:
<div id="navbar">Navigation Bar code here</div>

<div id="content">Your page content here</div>

hi, thanks for your help it is now the footer that is overlapping the nav bar, how can I remedy this?

Can't you just apply the same left margin to the style for the footer?
