I’m sorry if I put this in the wrong section, please move it if necessary.
I’m building a site with WordPress and I’m new to all this.
I’ve got 2 problems to deal with.
I have an issue with my site’s footer. For some reason whenever I activate a certain plugin that I need, the background continues under the footer. I tried contacting the author for days but he hasn’t helped yet.
Anyway, it does this only on the main homepage and not anywhere else on the whole site. Here’s how it looks like:
Do you know what may cause this?
I added SSL to my site so it’s https now (Cloudflare). However, in Developers Tools it says that a certain plugin was detected requesting an insecure stylesheet. So I click it and it goes to (index) in the Sources tab of Developers Tools. It shows me that the below request uses http instead of https:
So I suppose if I manage to edit it and replace http with https this may be solved. Developer Tools shows all this in HTML though.
My question is, which file do you think would contain all this information displayed there so I can edit it and add the https?
I’ve been searching for so many hours!
I would be grateful for your help!
Thank you.April 19, 2016 at 8:08 am #240715
We really can’t diagnose images and you don’t name the plug-in.April 19, 2016 at 8:08 am #240716
Problem two solved. It appears a blank custom.css was uploaded to the uploads folder, so deleting it did the trick.April 19, 2016 at 8:10 am #240717
Hey Paulie, sorry. The plugin that causes the first problem (background after footer) is WP Blog and Widget.April 19, 2016 at 8:12 am #240719
…and what is that plugin supposed to do?
A link is going to help enormously here.April 19, 2016 at 8:14 am #240720
It adds a blog section to the site.

Unfortunately, I don’t that’s not going to help.
Without knowing what the plugin actually does to the CSS it’s hard to help.
Do you have a live site we can take a look at?April 20, 2016 at 10:04 am #240775
Unfortunately no, it’s still under construction.
I can send you login details if you wish though.April 20, 2016 at 11:29 am #240777I.m.learningParticipant
The image is really narrow to get an idea; I had a similar issue that may have been like this. I had created a container accidentally inside the footer that split the footer, adding the background inside the footer.
However, I am not using WP to build my sites; so that might not be the issue.
