Hi there,

I'm styling a wordpress site using the excellent wpframework as a base theme to work from...

one strange glitch though, there seems to be additional 15px padding/margin at the bottom of the site, I've targetted all the elements in Firebug, but still can't see whats causing it?

As always, any help greatly appreciated Smile

You have different markup

You have different markup structure in those examples.
In Hole in t'wall the footer is outside the container and the bottom padding of footer appears to be the problem.
For My Blog elements seem to be leaking out of the container, try overflow:hidden on .container.

Problem Solved...

Hey Tony,

Aaaahh yes I notice the markup is different, I will fix that too.... I applied the Overflow:hidden on the first example (blog) and it's fixed it! superb stuff!!

many, many thanks! I'll remember to try that in future if I spot a similar occurrence.

Great forum! Big smile
