Support » Fixing WordPress » Footer Messed Up

  • My footer’s formatting is messed up and I haven’t messed with it in a long time.

    Thought it might be a plugin, but I’ve tried disabling most and that didn’t work. Could it be the sidebar.php? I’m lost.

    Take a look at it here: . It’s suppose to be outside the main body, but it’s not. This is the footer “© Silence Nogood (RSS) 2009-2011. All rights reserved. Powered by WordPress”

    THANKS for any help 🙂

  • It is actually outside the main body, it is just the wrong background color and needs a bottom margin. Try adding this to the end of styleRed.css:

    #footer {
       background-color: #121212;
       margin-bottom: -10px;

    I just want the background to be invisible (the red patterned background) – how do I do this? Also, how did this just change? I used WP Minify… I wonder if that did it.

    Are you saying that you want the entire red patterned background removed?

    Ooops, totally didn’t mean that. I want the footer’s background removed so it’s just that red/patterned background.

    That would require a good amount of CSS styling and markup changes to footer.php. I say this because if you removed the footer background it would show as white because the background surrounding your posts is white and the footer is on a layer above that.

    So, with that being established, you would want to move all of the markup for the footer below the end of your posts. Then assign no background property to the footer div.

    That’s what it was like before. I have copies of the old files (before it got messed up). Should I replace the footer.php? Replacing the styleRed.css didn’t work.
