Random Space Outside Page Area

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been trying to fix this for several hours without any luck - there is a random white line at the very bottom of my homepage which I can't get rid of. It falls outside the page area (I can't select it using web developer tools) and is there no matter how many sections I place in my footer, and regardless of their order. When I change the website layout mode to fixed-width mode (currently set to full-width) the same space appears above the header. When I change the layout back to full width mode, the space above the header disappears but the one below the footer remains.

Any suggestions?

As I said in your post:

Usually when this happens there's some code error of some kind, such as an extra empty paragraph tag or a missing ; in CSS. It can also be an empty div. Had you removed anything from the footer area like a sidebar?

Unfortunately, I cannot find anything looking at it and so I'm going to escalate this, but while I do, please copy your custom code and paste it into the Direct Input tab here and validate: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

This will tell you if there's anything wrong with your custom code.

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for taking the time to look into this - I validated my custom CSS code as suggested and no errors were returned. I also tried deleting the entire CSS custom code and reloading the webpage and the random space was still there. Any further suggestions appreciated.

Have you tried either


#footer { padding-bottom: 0;}

or if in fixed width mode

.fixed_width #footer {padding-bottom:0;}


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Yes I have tried #footer { padding-bottom: 0;} but to no avail. Also tried #footer { margin-bottom: 0;} but that didn't work either. I am currently the watermark but if I turn the watermark feature on, the space is still visible underneath it. I am quite puzzled as to why this is happening.

Hi,

That space is your body, you're most likely using custom CSS to style your footer background, all you need to use is the Color Control > Body Background color. Remove your custom footer CSS and add your body background color and there should be no space.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Beautiful, that did the trick :) Although I would like to have this space as the same colour as my footer (say, blue) while the body as a whole remains white. I think I'll just create an white image file with a blue band at the bottom and insert it as a background image within the body properties. Problem solved! Thanks so much to all who contributed answers.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
