Footer height trouble (8 posts)

    Hi

    I'm struggling to change the height of a footer and border.
    I've tried changing it in the CSS file but to no avail.
    When I change it the whole page moves and a blank space appears at the bottom.

    When using firebug to do the alterations, I'm able to sort everything out just how I want it(no blank space at the bottom, the footer and border the right height), but the footer's height is under an element.style{ and I just cannot find how to alter this in the site's files.

    I've tried the CSS and I've tried the php files too but there's just no clue where the alterations should be made.

    This is not much to go by, but I'll provide whatever other info you may need to help me out with this.

    The site is here http://goo.gl/qXGRPT

    It's probably really simple, if you know what you're doing :)

    Many thanks

    I have a screen print of what it should look like with the alterations made using firebug.

    Not sure how I could post that on here though?

    It's added in with JavaScript by the way

    Ok thanks Andrew.

    I know nothing about Java, even less than CSS or PHP.

    Is this something you could help me with or is this just something I'll find easily with a Google search? I certainly don't seem to find it at the moment...

    It's something specific to your theme that you'll need help with removing properly, however you can add some CSS for now that overrides it:

    footer {
        height: auto !important;
    }

    Like I said, a very simple solution, when you know what you're doing :)

    It worked a treat Andrew!

    Thanks very much indeed
