Why does my Custom background not fill the page since Windows 8 ?

    I have a Coraline Theme with a fixed custom background. I have just moved to Windows 8 and now what was originally the “footer” (in its proper place at the bottom of the page), is stuck 3/4 of the way down the page. I have changed nothing on the Website at all to cause this and believe it probably still looks fine on earlier versions of Windows. Note: I have a friend also running “Coraline” and his background also finishes 3/4 of the way down the page ????

    The blog I need help with is kiwozikonnections.wordpress.com.

    Hi Time Thief,
    Here is a dump of the page I was referring to
    null You will see the Kiwozkonnections Footer 3/4 of the way down the page. Also had one other thought – this maybe a IE10 issue (which came packaged with Win 8) rather than Win 8 itself.

    My apologies if any of this forum is a bit clumsy a) I am not good at forums at the best of times b) I have just migrated from XP to Win 8 c) I don’t have my preferred graphics software installed yet – so steep learning curve all round :(



    Hi there, I’ve had a look at your site in Firefox, Chrome and Safari, and your footer strip is floating 3/4 of the way down the page in all three browsers, so this isn’t a Windows 8 issue.

    I recommend removing the footer portion of your custom background graphic, as this method isn’t reliable across browsers.


    Hi Wendy, Thanks for your input – I have now discovered the problem. It may not be a “Win 8 issue”, however it is a Win 8 “phenomena” with viewing choices which I now understand. Consider topic closed.
