Footer: cannot get background color to extend to full width


See this link for the codepen. I’ve labeled the sections I am working on in html and css “FOOTER”.

I cannot get the div to reach full width or full height. I was able to do it with the header by using position: fixed, and then right, left, top: 0px. Shouldn’t I be able to use the same idea here even though position is relative?

Thank you!

You could try this at the top of your CSS, but you will have to make adjustments elsewhere afterward:

* {
  margin: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;

When you say at the top of my css do you mean the body or the particular div i am working on?

The * is a selector that selects everything. I just meant to put it at the top because it makes sense intuitively.

That worked. Thank you!
