oh mighty minds of the wordpress forum.
so sight i've been working on is here: http://oliverwieland.com/philip-bradbury-glass/
so, my problem is the background. i've set a background image in the Appearance tab, which covers the header, menu and some of the content area. this is where i also set the background color to #000 black.
What I want is for the footer to have a black background that stretches to the bottom of the window IF there is space to fill. So for example on the homepage, on large monitors, the footer has loads of space below it. but on other pages i expect the main content area to push the footer off the screen.
do i need to do a min-height thing for the footer? tried a few things and just hitting walls everywhere.
