A few weeks ago, my Magento Go website begin acting strange as far as the width of the website. When you load it, the website is completely centered but you have the ability to scroll right pretty far. I think it also depends on the size of your monitor.

This is what it looks like when it is loaded:


This is what it looks like when I scroll all the way to the right

This is as far as I could scroll to the right

How can I get it to not be able to scroll to the right?

  • Hi Dustin and welcome to magento.stackexchange.com! I'm sure your problem is css related and no magento problem, so I'm sorry but your question will be closed. Please ask your question again on stackoverflow.com. I'm not good in frontend, but I think your problem is here: media="all" @media (min-width: 1200px) .container, .wrapper { width: 1000px; } – Fabian Blechschmidt Mar 10 '14 at 18:39

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a CSS problem – Fabian Blechschmidt Mar 10 '14 at 18:40
  • No problem, great you are here. Here is an explanation what this is about: magento.stackexchange.com/tour on the upper right, you find a link to meta.magento.stackexchange.com if you want to have a look about what this side is EXACTLY about :o) – Fabian Blechschmidt Mar 10 '14 at 18:45

The CSS for your .footer-bottom div is the issue.

Make the following changes (refer to Magento Go CSS editing instructions if necessary):

  • Change clear: right to clear: both
  • Change width: 990px to width: auto
  • Remove margin-right: -990px

  • Thanks so much. I'm fairly new to CSS so I made those adjustments to move the three images on the bottom to be flush with the newsletter signup. Is there a better way to do that than what I did? – Dhunt90 Mar 11 '14 at 14:51
  • "Is there a better way to do that than what I did?" - depends on content needs for that area across the site & across time. For now this will solve your problem. – benmarks Mar 11 '14 at 15:12
  • I meant is there a better way to move the images flush with the newsletter signup without extending the width of the page? – Dhunt90 Mar 11 '14 at 15:19
  • Simplest way now is to remove the left positioning and set the width: 920px. Ideally though you should have the footer elements content & styling such that you can float the div to the right and it will line up based on its container. – benmarks Mar 11 '14 at 16:38
