I have a site here:

www.particletechlabs.com

I need to make the light blue bar that says "For more information, contact us at.." under the large image go to the edge on either side.

But I cannot figure out how to make this happen.

I've attached a screenshot of what I need.




Any help is appreciated.

You can do this by applying some negative left and right margin to the rt-phonebanner div.

#rt-phonebanner {
    margin: 0 -7px;
}

Open in new window

It looks like the blue bar doesn't go to the edge because of the padding on the containing div #rt-body-bg4.

Line 113 of template.css shows

#rt-body-bg4 {
    margin-right: -9px;
    padding: 15px 16px 0;
}

You could try

#rt-body-bg4 {
    margin-right: -9px;
    padding: 15px 0 0;
}

instead to remove the right and left padding.

I've noticed you have posted a few CSS questions in the last day or two. You might want to consider using Firebug in Firefox to debug your CSS.

Firebug is excellent for working this sort of stuff out. Sure beats playing 'find that style'!

Good luck with your project.
