    How do you eliminate the white space below the footer in Chrome and IE?

    Sorry, I guess it's visible on all browsers.

    Hello Andrew...

    This can be seen right in the demo... Shows the same & worse if the content is shorter.
    Open this url: http://wordpress.org/themes/vantage In chrome, right click preview, open in a new tab.

    Then right click the about tab, select open link in new tab. Then go full screen(F11 on a PC) 1920x1080 view and you see this:
    View

    This is the view in Internet Explorer:
    View

    Basically what's happening here is that the page background colour doesn't match the background of the body. I'll fix this in the next update, but in the mean time you can fix this with a little bit of custom CSS.

    body {
       background-color: #2f3033;
    }

    This gives the background the same colour as the footer. Which gets rid of the white bar at the bottom.

    Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. It's feels great to fix issues. Let me know if you need help adding the custom CSS as a temporary fix.

    Thanks Greg... I appreciate you addressing this! I'm sure we would have eventually worked around it but I'm sure this will help everyone quickly address the issue if they need to. Kudos for weighing in on it!

    Cheers.

    Another temporary solution would be to switch to boxed layout. That might not be the look you're after, but it's worth a look.

    Just navigate to Appearance > Theme Settings in your WP admin. Select the Layout tab and select boxed layout.

    What about when the page has very little content in it and the footer is half ways up the screen?

    Given the current theme structure the only immediate option is to set a minimum height for the content area. Try the following out under Appearance > Custom CSS or your own Custom CSS plugin if you're running the free version:

    /* Site Body */
    
    #main {
    min-height: 500px;
    }
