  • I can’t be sure but I think it’s because the footer is contained within both Container divs (container and container-inner)

    Make a backup before proceeding. Try opening footer.php and remove the 2 closing divs where it says ‘end container’ and move them to the top before the footer div starts.

    Hey, thanks I did that and it is still doing the same thing.. Seems like a lot of people have the footer jumping up win IE 7.0 but everyone code is different.. anyone have more hints clues?

    I was looking through older post and found this article. If you haven’t found a solution, try looking in the footer file for:

    clear: both;

    Change the “both” to “none” and see if that helps. I had the same problem with a theme I’m using and this fixed it.
