Hi there - I'm new here, please forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong place!

I am definitely a CSS amateur and I've been making a portfolio site over the past week using a parallax setup given to me by a friend. So far I haven't had many problems, but I've found that the final section at the bottom of my page ("Contact details") has a glitch of some sort.

Basically when you try to scroll down from the "Contact details" section, the screen goes blank. I suspect that this is something to do with a height property in my CSS file but I cannot find it! There were previously some extra sections with Lorem ipsum filler text below the "Contact details" section, which I deleted - but I _think_ in doing so they have somehow retained their height at the bottom of the page.

Hope that makes some sense. The whole lot is (temporarily) freely hosted at:
barneyrow.site90.net - sorry for the advert at the start.
I’ve also zipped it and put it on Google Drive if that helps:

Any help hugely appreciated, even if just some pointers.
Thank you so much in advance!

Hi barnabyrow, It might

Hi barnabyrow,
It might actually be an unclosed tag, try validating your markup.

Fixed? How?

It would be a Good Thing for the community if you were to describe what you found the error to be, and how you fixed it. Did you fix the 128 html syntax errors? I see Tony suggested an unclosed element tag. I saw tags closing elements that weren't in scope which might have the same result.

I should point out that the page you linked is not well structured; too enamored perhaps of css3 to simulate html structure? (An obvious table structure, e.g., coded as block elements styled as columns.) Non-graphic, non-javascript aware browsers cannot properly render the page. That means Google et al will likely not index it properly, not to mention the poor accessibility issues. View in a plain text browser such as Lynx to see the page the way search bots and assistive technologies see it.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
