mind the gap!

i just had my first go making a template using CSS sculptor, and then importing it into site sculptor.

the template is one with a fixed footer, which appears ok until i start editing the site content.

if i delete content via CMS, I get a gap appearing between the content and the footer, can't work out why

index.php is the home page.

Most other pages appear OK, but I deliberately edited the content on the 'about' page to show the problem

aboutus.php

I think you can fix the problem by setting the background image on the outerwrapper to match the rest of the page:

screen.css line 123

#outerWrapper {
background-image:url("../images/line.jpg");
background-repeat:repeat-y;

thanks Ray.

I remember having an issue like this a while ago, and I fixed it by setting negative margins for the footer and an equivalent bottom padding on the content wrapper, but your suggestion is a lot neater. - and it works!

Hmm, still causing me problems.

when viewing in a window, as the window is reduced in height, the salads, desserts & price list content div shrinks

but when viewing contact us and testimonies, it doesn't seem to.

i think the div is shrinking by a certain amount in each case, but the additional content is masking it to an extent

**Update, i tried adding a negative top margin to the footer and bottom padding to the content wrapper div, its not quite right, but nearly there. This seems to be the fix **
