I've googled all over the place for this and found nothing satisfactory.
I've built a theme and the only remaining problem to fix is this:
My sidebar has a different backgroun colour to my content loop. The content loop largely determines the length of the page, but I want the sidebar background to stretch to fill all the space between where the widgets end and the footer starts.
I've heard of the faux columns method but I want to know if there's another method.
Please help me. It's getting very frustrating now!
