    Currently coding a new bootstrap 3 site, and need to do something I’ve never had to do before, and it’s got me baffled and wondering whether it can be done.

    I have a standard 4-bucket footer, all of equal widths, and I need to make the 4th footer of a highlight background colour that continues to the edge of the screen. Obviously highlighting the one div is easy, but it’s the making the highlight stretch into the wrapping container I can’t work out. One way is to use a background image and align it left, but I can’t use images – it all needs to be in css/less colour values as I’m defining a colour value through the admin via less. The only way I’ve managed to get it going is defining a css3 gradient that starts in the grey and then suddenly becomes blue, but making it responsive is messy.

    Ideas? I’ve attached an image to accompany my poor explanation.

    You can…search here for “full width browser bars”…to get the idea.


    Thanks so much – implemented and it’s worked. Great to know for future too.
