Page background oddness (12 posts)

    After much weeping and gnashing of teeth I finally got my reinstall working with a custom header. But, although I didn't change anything that i can recall on the style sheet, the white page background seems to stop mid-page. How can I fix it?

    Please see: http://www.israelisinamerica.org/articles/

    This doesn't seem to happen on individual pages, just the main page. Thanks!

    It's stopping at the bottom of the sidebar and since you have no sidebar on individual pages...

    Judging by W3C's (X)HTML Validator, you're missing at least one closing div (</div>).

    Thanks for getting back to me so fast. How can I find where I need to replace the div tag? Would that be in the Main template?

    Well, for some reason, your source is stopping after your sidebar, you're not getting the closing tags that are in the footer. Do you hve <?php get_footer(); ?> in your index.php file? If so, something is stopping it from loading. Could be the issue.

    If you don't want a footer, you need to close the <html>,<body> and <page> tags in the index.php file.

    Thank you, yes i do have <?php get_footer(); ?>. Any other suggestions?

    Is there something else in your sidebar after the meta? I don't see an error, and the validation isn't showing it, but like I said, something is stopping your template from loading the rest of it after the meta in your sidebar. I'd double check the index.php file for something out of place.

    perhaps copy your index file and paste it here- http://pastebin.com/, and post back with a link to the file.
    Maybe something will show up.

    I so appreciate the help -- I have litle to no idea what to look for.

    I don't see anything there. Try posting your sidebar file in the same manner. There has to be something that is hanging up the page from loading the footer.

    The footer.php file is in your theme folder, yes?

    Sidebar file is here:

    Yes the footer.php is in both my default theme folder and the custom one that is created.

    Ugh. I thought for sure something would show up in the code. Copy the footer code, save a new file. Delete the old footer, and upload the new file.
    Perhaps someone else will notice something I'm not seeing.

    Yay! I got it! Thanks to your mentioning the footer. I had nothing in it at all, so I figured I might have removed something along the way. Copied what I had in another blog and it worked. Now I am looking at the file that *should* have been there to compare.

    Thanks again.
