[Solved] Expanding BG Out of Page Wrapper

  • # November 25, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    I’m trying to get the background I have in the content area shown below to break out of the page wrapper that I have the text in, and to fill the screen at 100% width. The section I’m talking about is the one right below the tabbed folder section. I’d also like it to be expandable. Does anyone have any idea how to go about this? Any help would be rad!

    Thanks for the reply, that’s kind of what I figured would need to happen but I wanted to avoid for the reason that it’s so bloated, and it’s kind of ugly. Thanks!
