Can somebody advise how to fix the problem with the footer fixed in the place? It does not "push back" down. The other section (left) ovelaps the footer...

It's overlapping because .css formatting like the classifieds start with doesn't use table as much in their formating.
Instead the css tell the browser where to start the display such as your overlaping panel.
So essentially, that overlapping section is not in a table that would push the rest down normally, instead it's been given a location where to let it float above the tables.
Personally I don't really like the css formating, there are occations where it works great, but I removed most of the css formating.
Check out my site, using standard tables and rows, with the asp.net engine.
The easiest way to fix that problem, assuming that the overlapping area doesn't change, would be just throw in some <br /> or a spacer image under the registration form, and that would push it down.

I really like your site. I wonder did you do the design first by bying a CSS skin and than changed those html pages into ASPX and master layout? I think this should be done this way, but not sure. I think replacing CSS will not help a the new layout is needed
and we need to define classes for DIV> I have tried to change th existing CSK layout by applying different CSS styles, but seems this is a very difficult task (at least for me as I am not a designer).
Did you buy a CSS template or did you just pay the designer to do it? Did the designer give you apsx pages or just html? I am trying to figure out how to do my layout/design... Any help/advice would be great. Thanks,

What I did was I went online to templatemonster.com to get ideas as to a layout for my site.
I saved a lot of the screen shots, and started with pen and paper, then moved to photoshop to make it more realistic as to what the site will look like.
Then I started building. Just plain and simple Tables inside Tables html. And a lot of spacer images.
I ended up deleting more than half the css files.
And I think my site is faster this way too. In my opinion .css is great for font size, font color. bold. . .
But I don't like formating the layout with .css It's too hard to make your site look the same on different browsers/monitors.
But make it your own, it's layout is just to get you started.

I understand that tables are more easy to use. Howvever CSS have many advantages. I would like not to ogive up and try to finish it using pure CSS. Here is my new page, but it has many problems:
1) After Featured Item there is a lot of space. How can I reduce it?
I used clear:both property for content_right class. The reason for this is that I can have multiple featured (featured_item class)... Featured_Item class has property float: left set, so I have to reset it in the following section by using clear: both....
Seems there is too much space now. I wonder if there is maybe another way I should handle this....
2) The line between browse ads and the tab is to close to the tab, how can I move it up?
3) There is big bold vertical line on the left of featured item. How can I fix it?
4) The panel header ("new to Zikbay?") is cut off, how can I show it for the whole width of the column?
Thanks a lot
