Hi Experts,

I can't seem to remove the right margin nor padding within the header tag which holds three sub-tags namely, header-1, header-2, header-3 even though i specified their values to be 0px as can been seen from the attached image.

Please help.

Thanks in advance,
Rick


Html Codes:

<?php
defined('_JEXEC') or die;

// Add JavaScript Frameworks
JHtml::_('bootstrap.framework');

// Load optional RTL Bootstrap CSS
JHtml::_('bootstrap.loadCss', true);

?>

    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width", initial-scal="1.0">
        <jdoc:include type="head" />
	
        <!--[if lt IE 9]>
		<script src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/media/jui/js/html5.js"></script>

    <body>
        <!-- Header Start -->
        <header class="row-fluid">
                
            <!-- Insert Logo Here -->
            <div id="header-1" class="span4">
                <jdoc:include type="modules" name="header-1" style="html5" />
            </div>

            <!-- Insert Slogan Here -->
            <div id="header-2" class="span4">
                <jdoc:include type="modules" name="header-2" style="html5" />
            </div>

Obviously, something else in the page is affecting the rendering post a link and we can do a diagnostic.

First and foremost, use Firefox + Firebug to determine exactly how the style is being applied.  It looks like you have your custom style sheet loading after Bootstrap, which is how it should be.  But you're also applying the style to the upper level container elements.  The <jdoc> directive to include the modules is going to create additional elements within that container - elements that can (and probably are) targeted by bootstrap styles.

Use Firebug to determine exactly which element is being targeted by bootstrap.  Then you have the option of either targeting that element in your custom style, or in a worst-case scenario, creating a custom chrome, alternate layout, or core override to replace the HTML currently being generated.

I found the element that was being targeted by bootstrap.

.row-fluid .span4 {
    width: 31.6239%;
}

The total is not 100% and therefore 5.1283% leftover is what we see on the right.

I made the adjustment to 33.33% and it fits nicely.

Thanks for your help
