Please look at http://rkassoc.org/Houston/.

Note how the tan background extends to the right. Note in the code (HTML), things are centered. I do not want the excess background on the right.

How do I get rid of it?

Your content is all inside the following elements
<div class="col-xs-8">

Open in new window

This is restricting your content to the left 75% of the parent container.

You need to make that col-xs-12 to extend to the full width of the parent. If that is too wide then you need to put the parent into a container of its own - something like

<div class="row">
   <div class="col-xs-8 col-xs-offset-2">
         <!-- Login box markup goes here -->
   </div>
</div>

Open in new window


The col-xs-offset class basically pushes the container left the specified number of columns. Because the content area is 8 columns wide - leaves 4 columns which we divide by 2 to get the offset value.
