After 1.1.8 update - Footer is Twice as Large - Too TALL
« on: January 27, 2014, 04:30:58 PM »
Hello,
  Hoping someone can direct me towards a fix. I updated to 1.1.8 and now my footer is really tall, with lots of wasted space. Please have a look (pic attached) and let me know if there is a fix for this. Is there any code anywhere that I can adjust the pixel height of the footer?

Thanks,
JFuchs

Hmmm, have you looked at the XML in the template?

That is really strange looking.

storefront>view>default_html5>template>common>footer.tpl

Make sure there isn't something weird there.

I should look like this:

Code: [Select]
<!-- Footer -->
<footer>
<!-- footer blocks placeholder -->
<section class="footersocial">
<div class="container">
<div class="row">
<div class="span3">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[0]}; ?>
</div>
<div class="span3">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[1]}; ?>
</div>
<div class="span3">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[2]}; ?>
</div>
<div class="span3">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[3]}; ?>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</section>

<section class="footerlinks">
<div class="container">
<div class="pull-left">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[4]}; ?>
</div>
<div class="pull-right">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[5]}; ?>
</div>
</div>
</section>
<section class="copyrightbottom">
<div class="container">
<div class="pull-left">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[6]}; ?>
</div>
<div class="pull-right textcenter"> Copyright 2014<BR>All Rights Reserved<BR>WholesaleOstomySupplies.com
</div>
<div class="pull-right mr20">
<?php echo ${$children_blocks[7]}; ?>
</div>
</div>
</section>
<a id="gotop" href="#">Back to top</a>
</footer>

How exactly do I get to that? I don't see anything on the back-end. Or should I download from the AbanteCart site and open for a look? I updated this morning directly through the dashboard. Maybe I should try to reinstall?

I appreciate your help. I will be leaving work for the day in just a couple minutes, so please don't take offense if I don't reply until tomorrow morning. Thanks Again! I really appreciate it!

You need to look at the file with an XML editor, should be able to do it in your control panel.

Thank you abantecart

I also had another issue pop up. Apparently one of the Jpeg photos my vendors sent me has some kind of script error, and now I get the following message (see picture) when I try to access page 22 of my resource library. I don't know of anyway to delete that file without doing so through the resource library, which as you see will not let me see the bad picture, in order to delete it?

are you see it for 1024x768 screen resolution?

You can decrease blocks width of footer. Just change
Quote
min-width: 270px;
to 220px
on line 2817 of file public_html/storefront/view/default_html5/stylesheet/style.css (rule for #footer .footersocial .span3 ).
But better way to remove one of blocks from footer.

I had the same problem after upgrade to 1.1.8.
I had disabled the newsletter block, but it leaves the div placeholder.
So on certain screen resolutions this 'empty block' drops down a line and leaves a large white expanse.

Solution - delete
<div class="span3">
               <?php echo ${$children_blocks[3]}; ?>
            </div>
from footer.tpl

Resolvido o problema  do espaço  em branco em meu Rodapê!
Quando eu estava tentando remover  o o botão doação paypal eu estava pensando que era através do XML ao invés de ir diretamente em modelos de layout padão, então tentei apenas comentar a linha, mas lógico que não daria certo,mas eu não sabia.
Então sem querer eu deixei a linha com o sinal /*  sem fechar com \* desta forma ficou com um pequeno espaço em branco no footer..
mas lendo este fórum consegui lembrar qual foi o arquivo(xml) que eu avia mexido um dia anterior..
Obrigado my friend

Solved the problem of white space in my footer!
When I was trying to remove the paypal donation button I was thinking it was through the XML instead of going directly padão layout templates, then tried just comment out the line, but logical that it would not work, but I did not.
So unwittingly I left the line with the sign / * without closing with \ * in this way was with a small blank space in the footer ..
but reading this forum could remember what was the file (footer.tpl) I avia moved a day before ..
Thank you my friend
