  • Hello,

    There is a row of white space between the main body and footer on all my pages ( that I can’t seem to eliminate. I’ve done a search for a solution, but have had no luck. Does anyone have a suggestion please?

    Are you using a browser developer tool like Firebug?

    Andrew –

    No, I am not. I have Dreamweaver for writing code on other websites, but haven’t yet figured how to use it with WordPress. I am therefore just using the wp-admin built-in editor.


    Firebug is indispensable IMHO for working with CSS… In this case, it showed that the space you are trying to eliminate is the bottom margin here:

    article.intro {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #F9F9F9;
        border-bottom: medium none;
        margin: -1.855em -8.9% 1.625em;
        padding: 0 8.9%;

    So you can add just that portion of the above to the child theme – and change the margin for the bottom.

    Excellent, thank you very much. I will look up Firebug right now!

    I appreciate the help. Have a good evening.
