    ~Hello.
    I was experimenting with layerslider, so I made a couple of slides. I was happy with them and I decided to remove the footer and the top and bottom widgets so to have just the logo, the menus and the slider as my home page.
    Removing the top and bottom widgets caused no issue but removing the footer did. There is now a black band just below the copyright that doesn’t want to go away.
    Do you have any suggestions?
    The page is here: http://nsc2.northstarcomputers.ie/

    Thank you

    That is the copyright-wrapper container…there is actually a colour option setting for the background of it (default is black) and the text (default is white).

    I have seen the color setting but that is not the issue i believe. I attach a screenshot.
    I did change the colors, that only makes the copyright disappear but the black band remains as if it is a ghost footer….

    You mean all the black area below? That is the page background…you can change that from Appearance >> Background

    Sorry for wasting your time…. doh….. now the issue has evolved.
    Screenshot2 is at 1600×1200 on my 22″ monitor, and the copyright banner is not at the bottom.
    Screenshot3 is at 1440×900 on my 19″ monitor and the banner is where it should be.

    Is this not what a responsive theme should do when the screen resolution changes?
    I know that not many users might have a 22″ screen at 1600×1200 but for those that do it doesn’t look right.
    Is there a quick CSS fix that can take care of the resizing?
    Thank you again

    As the viewing area changes in height, width, and resolution, content changes in size and position, especially for a responsive website. In the world of HTML and CSS, there are limitations and one is fluid height (%) which does not exist without using javascript or jquery script. The only other method would require some creative CSS coding, but if you always want your copyright to stay at the bottom, regardless, then you need to look into changing the theme code first for the copyright wrapper container and to make it “absolute” positioning at the bottom.

    Long and technical story short, this is just how it functions with all the various elements that play together with different and fluid screen sizes; how much and what type of content you have in your page is also a key factor. This will also display depending on what kind of code modifications you make (or made yourself to the theme files and CSS)….and it looks like you made several. In fact, I had to look at the style.css to see what theme you were using of mine because on the front-end side, there isn’t much left of it showing.

    That’s fine, I understand.
    On a different note, and I am aware you are not the developer but…. would you have an idea as to why the zip file that layerslider generates when exporting refuses to load when trying to import it and also refuses to open in winrar or winzip? The demo sliders can be opened no problem and I can get at the json file, while the slider I spent hours making now is not usable because it does not import .

    Not too long ago the developers of the LayerSlider plugin made some significant changes. (For everyone in general who may read this topic) The location where a custom skin for the slider goes is one, and the other is that the export/import is now done in a .json file format is the second big change.

    As for your question…this is one you will want to contact them about if your importing of the exported .json file is not importing. Also, if the zip file it generated when exporting is not able to open in winrar (which I use and prefer) or winzip, it could be a corrupt zip file….might want to inform them of this as well. I just downloaded an export to my desktop from one of my demo sites and using winrar, I did get the file unzipped. Again, it could be a corrupt export file; perhaps try once again.

    It actually was an issue with the zip file. Winrar repaired the file and I was able to upload the slider successfully.
    Thank you for your help
