My original problem was that I wanted to color the background of my footer grey. I accomplished that, however it skewed all of the "menu" I had in it so I had to add some padding in the css to fix that.
The last problem that I have is that my background, for some reason, now stretches past the 960px width that the rest of the my content is established at i.e. the image slider at the top.
I was wondering if anybody had a solution to make the background aligned with my image gallery.
Please let me know if you can help,
