I cannot remember how to make the whole page to have a white background (except where I have background images) and yet have a blue background outside of the page. Here is my page-
http://indianaeagleforum.org/index333.htm If I make the background of the ".container" white (#FFF) that does not do it. My body background color is #3366cc If I change it to #FFF everything will be white, but I would like the page to be white with a blue background outside of the page. I have already gone to Page Properties and made the background #FFF. Should I be taking the height off the columns? You will notice that the blue background is showing through the website just above the footer. I am using CS4 on a Mac which uses Snow Leopard 10.6.8. The browser does not seem to matter but it is Firefox 8.0.1 What should I do? Thanks so much.
You have no "clearing" DIV.
Just above the closing tag for the container you need to add:
and it will remove the blue
Or add overflow:hidden to the container's style rule....
Both of these answers worked. I am sorry that I could not mark both as CORRECT. This has been a great frustration and I have had to make the whole background and the area outside of the page as white to correct this in the past. THANKS so Much!
