It's harder to see at the moment. I made it black against a dark background to minimisze the problem for the average viewer but it is not invisible.
I have put the comments to appear under post in the main index but now the footer sits at the base of the browser on some pages and a little way up on others.
My site is at http://www.chrisfawkes.net and i am using the photo lounge theme from slr lounge.
Though the final command is to get the footer it is actually displaying the text from the sidebar.php That is an intentional part of the theme so not sure if that is causing issues.
Anyway here is the code from the maine index. As usual any help greatly appreciated.
