Extra Footer Space

Recommended Posts

robbienorris

I know some have had similar problems, and I have read and tried those solutions. I can't seem to get the extra space at the bottom of my site to go away. I've been able to make it bigger and smaller, but it won't completely disappear.

Your background image isn't supersized and thus it falls short of the height specified. You appear to have a custom height of 696px set for the site's minimum height. This definitely affects it:

#page, #dynamic-content {
	    min-height: 696px;
	}

However, lowering the number only shortens the image because you've applied the background to the page canvas (not to mention a few other elements). Can you explain how you actually implemented the background? Was it through the built in upload options or did you do this manually via CSS?

The background was implemented via built in upload option. What do you mean by "image isn't supersized"? Is there a better way to make the site look as it does now? Any other way I wouldn't be able to use shading (like the blue going over the red), correct?

PageLines Framework uses a supersize option to stretch the background to the frame of a browser. I forgot you were using PlatformPro and not Framework. I can't tell if the plugin linked below works or not in PlatformPro, but it's an example of a plugin that will allow a full-screen background. This should allow you to stretch the background entirely. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/background-manager/

This plugin adds the background the same as the built in on platform pro. I still have the problem of extra footer space that won't go away

Hi Robbie, Can you try this for me please. Remove your uploaded background image, once you have completed this, add the following code to your custom CSS.

body, body.fixed_width { background: url('http://presvote.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/pv-header31.png') no-repeat 50% 0; }

See if that works.

Hi Danny, That changed the extra footer space to white. Space is still there.

I have a workaround idea: 1) Set the background color to be that shade of red you have on your site now (I know that means your background image with the blue top part and red bottom part will disappear but this will just be an experiment). 2) Make the bottom segment of the background with the white glow an image and add it as a non-repeating background image using CSS, but you'll also need to position it so that it sticks to the bottom. Does that make sense?
