    Can you provide a link to an example page where the header is failing to work correctly?

    Sorry, yes...the footer. Sorry about that!

    What are you expecting it to do that it is not doing?

    it is not extending all the way across the page, like the header does. It did yesterday, and I do not know what I did to make it not work properly. I need some help, lol.

    BACKUP YOUR CODE BEFORE ANY CHANGES.

    I looked at your site, and if you can find the code that says <!-- END bottom --> and cut the </div> that is DIRECTLY after that.

    Then, paste it just before the <!-- BEGIN bottom -->.

    Save and checkout your site!

    That worked, almost. Now the footer is good on the left side, but fails to extend all the way to the right. Now what??? LOL.

    This is what I see: http://skitch.com/mkbernier/dmca6/billboard-family
    It looks like it is extending to both sides when I look at it in Firefox and Safari on a Mac.

    What about if you scroll all the way tot he RIGHT with the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom....when I do that, I get a white space on the right of the footer. Also, that scroll bar should not be there (the horizontal one at the bottom, but not sure why it is there). Here is what the theme looks like on the demo site:

    I have been tinkering with this since I posted this, and I am getting close, but I just can not seem to get it right. If anyone can give me the extra push I need, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks in advance!

    Was it just another Div tag out of place?

    No, actually. I had an image in the header that was too large, and it pushed everything. I changed the size of the container of the image, and that fixed it.
