Is there any way to make a background color stretch out to full width of browser?



I am trying to achieve a full width background color behind a code block on my website.

The code block has two divs - one for the background color, and one for the content.The CSS I am using at the moment is as follows:

#Bio {
 background-color: #e5e5e5;
 margin-left: -600px;
 margin-right: -600px;

#BioWrapper {
 margin: 0 auto;
 padding: 40px 600px;

So basically I am playing around with margins and padding to get the effect, but it then creates extra space to the right, causing unwanted scrolling.

This is the page I am working on: http://blussh.com.au/about/The grey area with the heading 'heids' is where I am trying to achieve this full width background color.

I am hoping there is an easy fix to my CSS - can anyone help?Thank you!

Hi all, I love the look of the full width color blocks used in http://blussh.com.au/about by @Heids, is there a way to do this without being on Developer Mode?

The area I really want to target is the Content Header, or it might be the #page-body-header.

I am pretty beginner when it comes to code, is there an easy way to do this in the FIVE template? @cirmiz @kale

Any help is appreciated :)

Could the same css be used if I wanted to achieve the same effect with an image instead of a background color?
