Problems with coloured background in Dreamweaver CS6

Probably best if I attach images rather than describe the problem, so that's what I'll do.


As you can see there is a grey bar to the side of the page and it is the same at the bottom when I zoom out. I'm making this website as part of my Uni course and I have to follow a specific template so, please, don't judge me on what it looks like... lol.





The code for the background section looks like this:



body {

          background-color: #CC9966;

          background-repeat: repeat-y;



I have also coloured the footer.


#footer {


colours for text within the

footer division, ie <p id="footer">


color: #2D2D2D;

background-color: #CC9966;



So what do I have to change to make the colour fill the background entirely? I'm an amateur so please don't use too much technical language. I'm sure it's a simple fix, anyway.


Thanks a lot.

    Hi Smackdangle,


    Can you post a link to your site or post your CSS file for us to better understand what could be going wrong?
