  • I have a div called “filler2” after my footer which is meant to continue the background color of the footer if the content doesn’t take up all of the window. I have height set at 100%. It works, but the problem is that is stretching more than the window height. To add to the confusion, different browsers/monitors respond differently. The site works as intended on Firefox, but Chrome does the odd stretching thing. Also, nothing happens on IE. Any ideas?

  • If what you’re looking for the page to be long enough so that the footer has no space beneath perhaps you could try adding a min-height to your content div.

    Something like this for example:

    #content {
    width: 650px;
    border: 0;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0 15px 0 15px;
    float: left;
    list-style: circle !important;
    list-style-type: circle !important;
    min-height: 400px;

    Thanks for the tip. What I ended up doing was replacing the body background with the footer color and then created a “faux” gray background using an image. I’m still curious to know the answer as to why the div was streching so much…
