[Resolved] Black Line At The Top Of My Website

  • TheLifeOfNeil

    @thelifeofneil

    I’m using the Platform Theme by PageLines Ver. 1.4.2.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what the black line at the top of my website is doing there and how to remove it.

    I have searched around for a solution to no avail.

    The website in question is http://www.AlternativeFreedom.com

    I would greatly appreciate any help that can be offered.

    I just realized that the thin black line is in some way connected to the black background of the footer.

    Knowing this, I wonder if there is any way of removing the black line at the top of the page?

    Did you purchase this copy of Pagelines?

    @thelifeofneil

    No. I would have specified that I’m using the “free version” but I thought that “Platform” specified that it was the free version as opposed to “PageLines”.
    Apologies for any confusion.

    I don’t lose brownie points for pasting the same response as I did in the other thread that you asked me, do I? =P

    Sorry – my mistake. That black line is coming from the CSS on the body:

    body, body.fixed_width {
        background-color: #000;
    }

    I added the CSS that you posted into the custom CSS area of Platform and it does nothing. If I change the #000 to something else, it changes the color of the black line at the top of the page AND the footer area at the bottom of the page.

    Knowing that the black line at the top AND the footer area at the bottom are connected makes me question whether I can remove the black line at all.

    Thank you for all your help thus far.

    I’ve not used Platform myself. Can you set the body background color via Appearance -> Background?

    TheLifeOfNeil

    @thelifeofneil

    Yes, I can. But I’m not trying to change the color… I’m just trying to remove the thin line at the top of the page. =P

    Just change the body background to #fff.

    TheLifeOfNeil

    @thelifeofneil

    But that would change my footer to white and I like it in black, as it is. =P And even if I were okay with making my footer area white, I would then have to change all the white text in the footer to black text! =)

    Ah – but then you add:

    #footer {background:#00;}

    to your custom CSS. 🙂

    Great stuff =)

    I far prefer the fix you have given me to leaving the black line at the top of the page… But technically speaking it’s not a complete fix, as my header isn’t flush against the top of the page =P

    But I am more than happy with this fix for now =)

    I’m on my way out, so I’m going to have to give this a break for now.

    Thank you SO much for all of your help.

    I guess I have to post something else to mark this topic as resolved…
    I would have to say it’s pretty much resolved.

    =)
