Mysterious gray bar on my layout- SOLVED!

  • Dec. 18th, 2006 at 9:02 PM
If you view my LJ, and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, you will see a thin gray bar between my layout and the bottom of your browser window.

I've dug through the source code and css, and can't figure out where this is coming from. I've got absolutely NO gray in my color scheme, and this gray is the same color as that used in the origional Poe theme. I just can't figure out what part of that old code is doing this! I'm guessing it's something I'll have to override in my custom CSS... but I'm not positive.

Any ideas? I'm using a modification of the Poe theme, paid acct.

My journal is martygreene
My custom theme layer is: http://www.livejournal.com/customize/advanced/layersource.bml?id=7502874
My custom CSS contains:

.layout-tw #content-inner {
background-position: top left;
background-image: url(http://soup.cerealport.com/content-bg-tw2.gif);
background-color:#D8D1C3;
}

.layout-tw #beta .widget-header {
background-image:url(http://soup.cerealport.com/widget-header-tw2.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
color: #D8D1C3;
}

.layout-tw #gamma .widget-header {
background-image:url(http://soup.cerealport.com/widget-header-tw2.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
color: #D8D1C3;
}

body {
font-family:Palatino, Palatino Linotype, Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
font-size: 12px;
color:#000000;
background: url(http://soup.cerealport.com/body2.gif) center top repeat-y #ffffff;
background-color:#D8D1C3;
}

.layout-tw #header-inner {
background-image: url(http://soup.cerealport.com/header-bat.gif);
}

.layout-tw #content-inner,
.layout-wt #content-inner,
.layout-wtt #content-inner,
.layout-twt #content-inner {
background-position: top left;
background-repeat: repeat-y;
background-color:#D9D0C0;
}

div#header-name a
{
color:#968B74;
font-variant:small-caps;
font-style:italic;
}

div.hr
{
border-top: thin dashed black;
width: 33%;
margin-bottom: .5em;
}


h2.asset-name {
margin-bottom: 0px;
}
div.asset-meta {
margin-bottom: 0px;
}
div.asset-header {
margin-bottom: 0px;
}

div.user-icon
{
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 3px;
}

div.user-pic
{
border: 1px solid #000000;
padding: 3px;
margin-bottom: 3px;
}

div#credit
{
background-color: transparent;
}






Also, many thanks for those who helped me with my sidebar title issue, and all the issues I had when first getting this S2 thing going.

It's the #page-inner div left over from the Poe theme.
#page-inner{
background-color:transparent;
}

will make it the same color as the #alpha column, which blends pretty well.

ooh, lemme try that.

Also, yes- I know having both the user defined customizations and a custom theme layer is kinda a wonky way of doing things... but until I'm totally confident getting rid of the customizations made in the wizard, and putting them all into my theme layer, I think I'm gonna keep it this way.

Incidentally- chag chanukah sameach!

Thanks!
Every customization made in the wizard can be made in a theme layer, usually by some form of "set" or "property set". That's actually how the wizard works; it's just there as a level of abstraction to keep the user from messing around with a theme layer if s/he doesn't want to. But I'd agree that it's confusing. It took me a while to sort it all out.

So... if I copy everything out of the user generated customizations layer, and put them into my custom theme layer, then took away all my user generated customizations... would that solve a number of my issues?

I'm wary of just poking about a bit, because I still can't map out in my head what is what, and why. The names of things are not at all what I'd have called them, and thus I get confused. widget vs. module is a great example of this.

On the jew-side again, have you had a pleasant chanukkah so far? Do anything interesting? Mine has been low-key but nonetheless enjoyable. Managed to get in a good game of dreidel with some friends the other day, and whomped them all, haha! If you don't mind my doing so, I would like to friend you. I don't generally friend folk I don't know, but I find your journal interesting (I play Violin, although folk not classical/orchestral) and you seem nice. Thanks for all your help. It's very much appreciated.

Friend away. I can't promise you interesting content, though. ;) I also can't promise all your problems will go away if you combine your user and theme layers, but at least then you'll know which one is in control.

Didn't get to do much especially interesting for the holiday, since I had performances all weekend and missed most of the parties. I may try my luck at making latkes tomorrow, though!

yeah, I noticed your busy schedule!

I actually just finished a double batch of latkes, and hopefully didn't perminantly ruin one of my favorite skirts with a grease stain in doing so.

Good luck with the latkes!

add this to your custom css:

#page-inner {
background-color: whatever color you want;
}
