  • Ok, I found it, the screenshot with the margin is from my admin account which has many entries in the dashboard menu and so the background becomes long and continues under the chat. User dashboards have only a few entries and the chat covers all the background.

    Glad you worked this out on your own. And, yes, the WordPress menu system forces the page to grow downwards, elongating the background. Buoy itself takes care to make its built-in chat always appear to be at most as tall as the window, so you don’t have to scroll the page to access the chat message input bar.

    I just added a line in /buoy/css/alerts.css in the block #comments-chat

    margin-bottom: 5%;

    What for?

    While “no-margin” is good for smartphones, it can become annoying with desktop/laptops when you have the taskbar of your operating system in the bottom of the screen. You have to be careful all the time, because you risk to click on an icon of the taskbar instead of the Send button. And for a better look as well. I dont like this thing at all:

    I tested with the Customizer of the theme to see how it looks with 5% margin on a smartphone and I see I lose some space; so I ajusted it to 2% and it is OK now.

    With some other customizations (margin left/right, background color etc) it looks like this:
