    Your footer width is 1000pixels

    change footer width: 1000px; to width:auto;

    The easiest way to make the footer full width would be to make it a direct child of the #wrap div. Then it would be automatically full width without any positioning or anything.

    As it stands, it's a child of .columns, which has a width of 1000px. The div.columns area is a descendent of .content-pad which, strangely, has a width of 960px. So the footer will (unless you mess with it) take the width of one of those two.

    To make your changes you'll have to mess with your template files. Which ones exactly will depend on your theme: but basically you are going to have to change anything that calls get_footer(), I would think.

    As usual, I would echo the WP Codex recommendation to use a child theme when making any changes to themes.

    Cheers

    thank you both for your comments. the style sheet "thirdadolescence" is a child of the delicate theme. I have changed the widths of the key elements to 100% or auto. PAE, you mentioned I would have to mess with any page that calls get_footer() would you advise against this?

    thanks

    If changing the width has fixed it for you then you don't have to do anything else.

    If you do need (or want) to move the element to be a child of the #wrap element then you'll need to copy the templates that contain get_footer() from the delicate theme into your child theme. You can then alter them without worries except for getting it right, of course.

    :)

    I'm assuming that the child theme is one you've created...

    Cheers
