Hi,

Glad I found this forum.

I have a very annoying problem. For one of my websites the <body> tag doesn't cover the whole page. So when I try to add a background image, the image only cover half of the page. I used the W3C validators, firebug, other validators etc. I really can't figure this out. I also tried to set height and width to the <html> en <body> tag but that didn't fixed my problem neither. I do have some html and css skills but this one I really can't figure out. Probably I don't see it anymore or I'm misreading something.

My website is currently in development and can be found here: http://meules1.webshopapp.com/

Please help.

Kind regards,

Meules

This is probably a CSS issue, so I move the thread there.

What you describe might happen if you specify backgrounds for both the HTML (root) element and BODY, like this:

CODE
html {background-color: pink;}
body {background-image: url(dog.jpg);}

but the page links so many stylesheets that I can't look through them all. See also http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/colors.html#background

There are also CSS errors: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validat...ng=&lang=en most of them seem to be due to unrecognized CSS3 properties and browser extensions, but this one sounds relevant here:

And you might have to clear any floats in the right places.
You might want to use Nicolas Gallagher's New micro clearfix hack for that.

Christian,

Thanks for your reply!

I've fixed it. Problem was indeed a color for the <html> tag and a background for the <body> tag.

Thx
