white space to the right of my site

    I’ve searched online & seen a few other people with similar problems, but none of the solutions seem to work for me.

    I’m almost done on developing our site, currently at http://www.pauldeppermgs.com/test & on certain browsers & machines there is excess empty space to the right when you scroll over in that direction.

    There is no horizontal scroll bar visible on any device so you shouldn’t be able to scroll that way, but on an ipad (using safari) you can swipe to the left & expose the empty space on the right. I’ve also found the problem on a mac laptop (safari) using the trackpad & a microsoft surface pro using the trackpad (using chrome, but with edge it’s fine)

    I haven’t been able to reproduce the problem on any machine without a trackpad or touch screen. It’s really odd & I was hoping there was a simple fix, not so far unfortunately



    Hi @padmg,

    Your website doesn’t seem to be hosted by WordPress.com, instead it is using the WordPress.org software on your own server (self-hosted). This forum is for providing support only for websites hosted on WordPress.com

    There are two versions of WordPress – WordPress.com and WordPress.org. You can find more information about the differences between them here.

    I would suggest that you look at the support page of WordPress.org and their forum – https://wordpress.org/support/. If you don’t have an account there you can create one for free here.

    Have a nice day!



    Ah ok, thanks, i’m not sure how I got that mixed up, but I eventually managed to log in to the wordpress.org forum so hopefully they can help
