Hi

Just looking at the site I'm trying to view a page other than the home page have you swapped layouts for pages other than the home page?

As no page will load with any content on it in my random clicking

thanks for the quick reply. i am focused on getting the front page right, then i need to style up the content theme(s). here's hoping, at that point, that the menu items will start delivering results.

(I fixed my initial problem by selecting a non-content-component home page.)

Front page almost done - but I'm having trouble positioning a module. I have an an address and copyright footer at the bottom that I want to butt to the zen container, the one with the grid in it. But the zentools menu (Quick Links) on the right is adding a lot of that mysterious 'last-item' dark energy, pushing that footer lower than I like. I guess I need to solve this now because that Quick Links menu is going to be on every page. I've tried about 50 things (ok, 48) in my custom CSS but so far, no joy. What am I missing?

link to the dev site. note: only front page is functional right now.

Been looking at this a while

I think the culprit is

#grid4 {
background: #8a0808;
color: #ccc;
position: relative;
top: -130px;
}

in your custom styling with the positioning

I can narrow the gap using

#grid1wrap .zen-container {padding-bottom:0;}
.span8.copyright p {line-height:14px;}

but the rest looks like its due to the minus value you've added

without that minus value, that menu starts way too low....

Try working the margin rather the positon so something like

#grid4 {
margin-top: 30px;
}
