Blank Space with Tabs

I updated the tabs in the page to fit other bootstrap elements in the site and now I have a gigantic gap between the tabs and the bottom of the sub nav. It appears somehow they're related, but I can't figure out how to fix it without giving the content the position of absolute, and that renders the sub nav null.

Any help would be appreciated! :)

It's probably because you have a floated menu and your tab content is extending beyond the container it's in. If you're going all-in on Bootstrap, you really should have your entire template using the Bootstrap grid to help avoid issues like that.

See, it's not "all bootstrap." I've only taken the nav elements from bootstrap, not the actual doc itself. How do you recommend I fix it?

You're just gonna need to play around with it and see if you can squeeze things in. Use Firebug or the Chrome developer tools to see if you can isolate where it's having an issue. Easier to troubleshoot when you know exactly what's going on.

In the longer run, I'd move the templates over to the grid to help mitigate more issues moving forward.

I was able to fix it by making the content absolute and giving the sub nav a z-index, if anyone else had this problem. :D
