Space Below Footer Area

Recommended Posts


On my website there's space below the footer area. Here's what I know about the space:

1) it is 20px high

2) it appears on every page, regardless of page template, content height, or enabled features

3) it displays the page background color, but does not display the repeating background image

4) if the PageLines Leaf icon (#cred) is displayed (which I have turned off), it enlarges this area, and the leaf appears centered within.


What I would like to do is eliminate this space, so that my footer (and beside the footer, my background image) form the lowest edge of the page. A picture of this nefarious space is included for reference:

Hi, There isn't space at your footer, the issue you have is you have no content in your footer all your content appears to be in your page template area. I recommend you add some content to your footer. This is why the space is removed when the cred is active. http://cl.ly/image/3u2K3r2P0g3f

Thank you for identifying the space - that helps a lot.
I guess the next question is, how do I make the footer completely disappear? I prefer the typical footer information to appear in the universal sidebar I (had forgotten that I) was using, so that the repeating background image extends to the bottom of the page, even in the footer section. I tried "#footer {display: none}" but that didn't seem to do the trick.

Fair enough - I ended up having the page background image repeat in the footer space as well.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?

      How do I remove the leaf html5, css3 logos from the footer? Sorry if this have been covered a thousand times, but no clear cut solution available for my version of DMS2. Do I need to go pro to remove? Cheers!
