Gap in image background

  • # April 20, 2009 at 11:45 am

    I don’t know if anyone can help.

    I am a newbie to all this and have purchased Dreamweaver 4 and a template from a site that sells them.

    I have a gap on the pages under the header and above the footer.

    This can be seen at http://www.elite-photographers.co.uk/about-us.html

    Can anyone shed some light on this? Many thanks in advance.

    Oh, and I know it also uses tables as well as css, in my defense I didn’t design it!

    I bought it from a template shop on the web.

    Oh dear. I just had a very quick look at how everything there was being styled. I say just dump the whole thing. If that site cost you a considerable amount of money, I would honestly say you’ve been duped.

    If you’re set on using a template, go here: http://themeforest.net/

    Everything is standardized and up to date. NO TABLES.

    Thanks but that doesn’t really help me at the moment!

    The fact is I HAVE purchased this and happen to like the design!

    It’s just the annoying bug that is a pain at the mo.

    Will bookmark that other site though, thanks.

    Anyone have any idea how to fix it then?

    try viewing the page using Firefox with the Firebug plug-in, it allows you to see the CSS attributes applied
    to all of the HTML tags. then you may be able to tell if extra spacing is being applied to the tags, a very useful
    add-on to FF.

    I just looked at the page using FF and Firebug,
    the footer has a top padding of 34px, and a height of 109px. not sure what effect this is having on your look.

    Sorted this in the end. Had 2 conflicting style definitions and the one that I was looking at that looked right WAS right but was being overridden.
