Footer Problems

Recommended Posts

I am having issues with the footer in DMS. When I load one of my pages, the footer begins to malfunction. It won't stick to the bottom and has this white space below the footer: [attachment=1556:Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 10.18.05 PM.png]

it is supposed to stick to the bottom of the page like this: [attachment=1557:Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 10.18.41 PM.png]

 

Does anyone know how to fix this issue so the footer defaults to the bottom of the page without having that extra white space?

 

Thanks,

Jacob

The site is therefinerychurch.org

The page that is malfunctioning is therefinerychurch.org/feastoftabernacles

Sometimes it works and the footer defaults to the bottom, but other times when you load the page there is white space underneath.

Also, on the home landing page, I would like the footer to default to the bottom of the browser as well so that it fills the browser no matter what size.

Hi,

 

It seems there's some plugin conflict on your site causing the whitespace on the bottom of the homepage and the page you linked.  Oddly, the moment I try to view either in Firebug for Firefox, to see the code, the condition disappears.  That screams to me that the problem is caused by a plugin.

 

Theoretically, it also could be caused by invalid custom CSS code, but I can't see any evidence of that.

Should I delete all of my plugins and see if that resolves the issue?

Don't delete them.

 

Deactivate them instead. Deactivation lets you reactivate them, and continue testing.

Jacob,

 

It seems you have a cache plugin activated or present.  Make sure it is activated, and that you clear the cache first. Once the cache is cleared via the plugin, you can deactivate the plugin immediately.   After that, close the browsers, wait 30 seconds and reopen.

 

Then, make sure your other plugins are deactivated and see if the problem continues.

I tried the above solution and the Feast of Tabernacles page is still malfunctioning, but not the home page. Should I try and delete the footer from that one page and then recreate what I originally had? Thank you for all of your help!

Hi,

 

From what I can tell your issue is related to the Second Textbox you have that contains some copyright information, if you remove this, the white area below your footer is removed.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
