    Is it possible to have a "sticky footer" for this theme?
    I've found a way to do this manually:
    http://www.wordimpressed.com/wordpress/put-a-css-sticky-footer-in-your-wordpress-theme/
    But so, I have to do it after every update of the theme.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can create a Child Theme, then apply your changes to the Child Theme stylesheet.

    I've created a child theme for the Simple Catch theme and did some changes in the style.css and it works.
    But how can I do the "sticky footer thing" only with the css in my child theme?

    How far have you got with the tutorial?

    - I've created the child theme
    - I've activated it
    - I did some changes in the style.css:

    /*
    Theme Name:     Simple Catch
    Theme URI:      http://catchthemes.com/wp-themes/simplecatch
    Description:    Child theme for the Simple Catch theme
    Template:       simple-catch
    Version:        0.1.0
    */
    
    @import url("../simple-catch/style.css");
    
    #content td {
      border-top-width:0px;
    }

    Do you have a tutorial for the sticky footer especially with the child theme?

    I thought you had the sticky footer tutorial
    http://www.wordimpressed.com/wordpress/put-a-css-sticky-footer-in-your-wordpress-theme/

    WordPress doesn't provide these CSS specific tutorials.

    OK, I thought there would be a better solution because with this tutorial I have to do some changes in the header.php and footer.php.

    Have you a link to your web page, or Pastebin.com of your HTML and CSS for the page you want the sticky footer? It's difficult for forum volunteers to resolve these issues otherwise.

    Thank's, but I've already done the steps in the tutorial.
    I wanted to separate these changes from the parent theme (Simple Catch).
    I thought there would be a simple trick with the child theme to get a sticky footer.
