    Simply what it says in the title, how can I stick the footer to the bottom of the page?

    I have tried everything I've found from google, and nothing works. This theme is based on the Arras theme, is that helps. Can anyone help me figure this out? :)

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    Your footer is on the bottom of your page content. When you don't have any page content, that means it's halfway up the viewport - which is a very different entity.

    I tried the ryanfait tutorial, but it didn't work :(

    And esmi, what's this about viewports? Do you know then how I can get the footer to not go halfway up the page and instead stick to the bottom? :)

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    You could try using absolute positioning and keep the footer fixed on the bottom of the viewport with the content scrolling from underneath it.

    How do I go about doing that?

    I tried the absolute positioning.. but that just sticks to the bottom of the window.. I want it to stick to the bottom of the page.. The min-height and height of the wrapper are set to 100% yet the footer is still half way up the page..

    Then I don't understand what you want.
