    I just made a website with a default width of 1200px.

    Everything looked fine, but I inspected the layout with Chrome dev tool I noticed the footer was a bit off.
    To be exact the div.inside-footer-widgets margin was set to these values: 0 0 0 -40
    I can’t find the the -40 value in the customization panel.

    I think I could add a custom css property to correct it, but I decided to ask you why it may be set like this.
    Here are two screen shots.

    Everything is set to 1200px width, including the header, copyright bar, etc.

    Only the footer appears in 1240px, here are the margin settings:

    Hi there,

    the footer layout is not ideal but was built before decent CSS grid properties were standard across browsers. The -40px is to offset for the container padding and is necessary for the layout. If you add a background color to the footer widgets you will see it extends to the same width as the footer bar.

    What exactly are you trying to do with the styling?

    Thank you, David! I’m not planing to do anything special with the footer and I noticed it works as it should. I tried to add a background color and it was displayed correctly. I just wanted to report this to you. If you already knew about this and it was not accidentally set to a wrong value, it’s fine. Thank you very much for the quick reply!
