remove div vertical scroll


You might have an HTML page layout with divs elements, for example, a layout with a Left Div section that holds the Body/Contents of the page and the Right Div that displays Facebook Like-box, Tags and other stuff (as this website has). You might see that the left div section may vary in size depending upon the length the contents it holds, so you might get a vertical scroll added to the right div, let's see what CSS properties to use to avoid the scrollbar.

You must create a container div that holds both the left and the right divs, and add the following CSS properties to it : height: auto !important and overflow: hidden. For the Left and the Right divs, you can set minimum height and set overflow as auto, example : min-height: 1200px and overflow: auto

File : sample.html
<div class="container">
    <div class="leftSection">
        <p>contents of Left side</p>
    </div>
    <div class="rightSection">
        <p>contents of Right side</p>
    </div>
</div>
layout.css
.container-box {

    width: 700px;
    min-height: 900px;
    height: auto !important;
    overflow: hidden;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
  
}
.rightSection {
    width: 500px;

    background:#ddd;
    min-height: 1600px;
    float: right;
    overflow: auto;
    margin-top: 0px;
    display: inline-block;
    text-align: center;
}
.leftSection {
    width: 200px;
    min-height: 1600px;
    float: left;
    background:#eee;
    overflow: auto;
    display: inline-block;
    text-align: center;
}
