    Hi there,

    I have a social toolbar at the bottom of my page that covers up somewhat of my blog page. I want to know how to increase the footer area of my blog so there's more room for this social toolbar to be displayed. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    Thanks in advance,

    Seems like you managed to do this?
    The toolbar doesn't cover your footer,
    but using FF 3.6
    I am getting an error message :

    Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: nothing to repeat at offset 1 in /home/content/23/6381123/html/wp-content/plugins/wassup/wassup.php on line 3954

    add a bottom margin to the style of #wrapper (in style.css):

    #wrapper {
    	background: #fff;
    	margin-top: 20px;
    	padding: 0 20px;

    btw - twenty ten will be overwritten with the next upgrade of your wp version; please read this:

    I have a similiar issue and need to add padding on the footer (and title) in addition to remove my admin default in the email box for subscribe: http://www.mtochurch1.com/blog/.

    You can add padding to following style in the theme stylesheet:

    #footer-widget-area .widget-area {
        float: left;
        margin-right: 20px;
        padding: 10px; /* I added this */
        width: 220px;

    Subscribe textbox is displaying "Email Address" while blank, do you want to remove that
