    Looks like you have an additional <br> in the footer code to push the last line down.

    Check out your:

    /wp-content/themes/(your theme)/footer.php

    Is this what you meant by your post?

    Sorry, should have been clearer. I want the footer to clear the main content and the sidebar and just run the width of the bottom.

    Looking at your stylesheet it's already set to do this

    #footer {
      margin: 0 auto;
      width: 100%;
      clear: both;
      border: none;
    }

    Can you try and be a little clearer?

    Maybe you can add

    background-color: white;

    to that code above, just to see the footer better

    See, I THOUGHT the coding was right which is why I don't get why it's behaving like Satan's seed. Changed the back color to white. I just want it to lie down like a good boy across the bottom of the screen.

    Well the stylesheet looks right, I just don't think the div is in the right place....

    It's hard to tell though with the </div></div> over and over

    I gotta run but I'll try and check this out later.....

    Okay, so here's what we're looking at currently

    <div id="footer"> footer stuff
    
    </div> </div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div> <div style="clear: both"></div></div>

    I think what we need to do is move the footer below the wrapper, that should work....so here it goes

    </div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div></div> <div style="clear: both"></div></div>
    
    <div id="footer"> footer stuff
    
    </div>

    Basically all I did was move the footer div below all those other div's right there, that should remove it from the main container and give you the full 100% you're looking for. Try and do it by hand, don't copy and paste as I removed your footer info.....

    Okay, I think that it's doing that because the right sidebar is set to Positioned Absolutely.....So I'm going to refer you to this page with some good info

    If I end up figuring it out, I'll post it here.....

    Well I removed position:absolute from the style sheet which put it in its correct place. Now I can't figure out why it is yanking the content box down and why there is a gap beneath the footer. I tell ya what...one thing after another.

    AND....it yanked my sidebar out of place...grrrr lol

    Gap gone.

    I don't know what I did to fix the alignment but I replaced things here and there until it set right and would not come out of place when the window was minimized.

    And the stretching of the content. Oy... This one definitely gets me.

    themesbycal....did you ever know....that you're my hero...
