    Hi everyone!

    I’m new at coding and I’ve downloaded a free template that I’m changing up for a friend’s business. So far, so good, but I’ve got this big white space just below the header (logo/menu/team pic) and I can’t get rid of it! I’ve tried everything I could think of and I’m going a little nuts here. Please help!! It seemed to be behind the team picture at first (hero section) and would show on resize (background-size was set to contain – ie. the team picture). I’ve changed the background-size and made it so that the picture would stay right below the menu but I can’t get rid of the white space (now it’s all showing below and gets bigger on smaller screens). Is there a background to my background? And where is it coming from?

    Here’s the link to the page: http://runmelanierun.com/g/index.html

    Here are the sections of CSS code which I think relates to it, but if you need to see more, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I think you have to define a height like 640px in .hero and play with media query to adjust the container, also removing .inner { /padding-top: 170px;/ }

    .hero {
    background-image: url(../img/hero-bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    position: relative;
    -webkit-background-size: 100%;
    -moz-background-size: 100%;
    -o-background-size: 100%;
    background-size: 100%;
    width: 100vw;
    top: 0;
    bottom: 0;
    display: block;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding-bottom: 0%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    background-position: 50%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-height: 400px;
    max-width: 1920px;
    }

    and adjust with media query for the other screen sizes, sorry if didn´t help.

    Hi!

    Thanks so much for your help! :) I really appreciate it.

    The white space is gone and it looks great on the smaller sized window but my background picture’s height is cut when I make the browser window bigger. I guess that’s what you were saying when you mentioned to adjust with media queries… Can you give me an example on how I would do that?

    Thanks!
    Melanie
