Hi, RobM. Ya, I’m puzzled what is causing it, as I’m not adding any additional padding/margin, and I’d assume that even if the elements (images/text) within my Boostrap columns are responsible, they would be rearranged and shrunk as needed within each column. So, I’m really confused.
I’ll try making the container fluid, but I have to consider if that will affect any other aspect of it. The hidden overflow is a good idea, and I think that should be harmless, since nothing is currently getting clipped as it is (which further confuses me why the scroll bars are appearing… unless there’s some additional padding causing that, as there is visibly nothing that is actually pushing past the monitor screen borders.
I’ll have to look into it further, and will post again here if I have anything new to mention. Thanks!
UPDATE: One thing that MIGHT be causing it… maybe… is that I have a Position:Fixed ‘Back To Top’ button element which floats in the top left corner of the screen, independent of the rest of the page. Maybe that is pushing the container and/or body a bit? I’ll remove it, and see if the page size fixes itself.
It’s wierd… The section of the page that IS on the screen (when the horizontal scroll bar is positioned to the left) IS actually centered… so whatever ‘extra’ screen is causing the scroll bar to appear, it is ADDITIONAL to the intended size, and stuck on the RIGHT side of the page. If the browser DID show the whole (existing) page, the content would actually not be centered, but shifted over to the left. The extra screen space is something tacked onto the right side of the (proper) page.
Even the items (DIV background colours, etc) that span across the page stop where the extra screen area starts, leaving that whole vertical strip empty of any content… So, I guess the container is the right size, but the body has some extra space added to the right of it?.. like a right padding? (There’s no coding to cause that, but that appears to be what is happening…)
