Delete margin on the top when the width of the browser is over 1000 px

Why do I have huge margin on the top when the width of the browser is over 1000 px? Screenshot: https://yadi.sk/i/7zjrymiymQxe2

I tried to add this to css file and responsive file, but it didnt help...

body { margin: 0; padding: 0; }

Web-page: http://vote.hooters.com.ru/thanks.html

And how can I make background image to fit the the browser (width and height 100%)?

Hi Denis,

You have an entire div that's taking that space, namely the row-fluid thanks class div . I'm not entirely sure why it's appearing there, but that's what is causing it.

About your background image, it sounds like you want to use the background-size: cover; property.

Hi Justin,

I deleted this div, however it didn't help. Uploaded new html file http://vote.hooters.com.ru/thanks.html

It's strange because its appearing only when I the width is over 1000px.

I still see the div, and what I delete the element itself from the inspector it fixes the height issue. I'm not able to see any images except for the logo, but Ron has some good points regarding your responsive.css. You'll have to slowly go through it and clean up those values.

Denis, That huge margin comes from margin-top property in responsive.css file. Look for it in various media queries and set it to smaller values or even 0. What's more important, put class="wallpaper" on body tag and remove it from div, then you will be able to remove that horrible min-height from various media queries. Remove that fixed min-height from everywhere in responsive.css file, you no longer needs it when wallpaper will be set on body element.
