I need my sidebar to stretch (6 posts)

    Hi there,

    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!

    Well, as is always the way, the moment I post for help somewhere I stumble across the answer by simply fiddling around!

    Thanks anyway. I solved it.

    google for clearfix

    Should help you find something. I forget how I used it, but I used it in a previous theme to make my sidebar reach down to my footer
