Weird White Line Around My Custom CSS Section??

Recommended Posts

Hey, all! 

Let me pre-face this with letting you guys know I am pretty new to CSS still.

I have added some custom CSS to make certain sections appear to "float" over other sections - as you can see in the photo below. I tried to round off the edges of that section but it wasn't working, so I added a 10px border to it and rounded off the border to get the same effect.

The problem is, as you can see, there is a very thin white line that goes around the section in between the section edge and the border I added and I cannot figure out how to get rid of it.

It's kind of hard to see in the attached photo but feel free to visit the link and scroll down a little and you'll see what I mean.

Any input is really appreciated.

Thank you

It seems like there's just a sliver of another background colour coming through on that section. You can try this:

	/* Other Styles */
	background-color: #17242c!important;

But you shouldn't have to add a border to use border-radius. If you were getting some weird behaviour you could read a bit more about it here.

Thank you, that worked.

Yeah, I am not sure why but on certain elements, like the floating sections, I have to add a border in order to round it. Normal "border-radius" does nothing for them, even if I put a !important after the desired radius. 

I think I must have done something in the earlier CSS when I made them float that is affecting it.

Anyway, thank you again I appreciate your response!!
