My pages are long and the background image only covers part of them! (4 posts)

    On the following pages the background image goes down to the bottom of the content, and then there's a large grey area below the content [certainly in Safari 3.1, Firefox 16, Chrome 22.0]:

    I'd like to get rid of that whole bottom grey area.

    I've viewed the pages with Firebug and the grey area doesn't appear as a margin bottom or padding for any of the divs. Looking at the box model tab it also only highlights the background-image area.

    Where has this extra bit of the site come from? Any insight much appreciated!

    Try applying the CSS;

    html {
     margin: 0;
     padding: 0;
     height: 100%;
     background-color: none;
    }

    What is actually causing it is line 40 in your child theme's stylesheet. You have the background-color set to: #EEEEEE just remove the rule and it should be fine.

    Thanks jcastaneda – that's fixed the greyness of it so the image goes right to the bottom.

    The page is still much longer than I expect it to be, though.

    I tried changing 'height' to 100% in the html styling, and it didn't resolve the problem.
