    Question Footer Clipping The Bottom Of My Pages [SOLVED]

    Greetings,

    I'm having a problem with a footer in a fairly standard two column layout. My header and two columns (main and sidebar) are displaying fine, but my footer isn't going all the way down past the two columns. Instead, it's cutting off the bottom of the one or more of them.

    The pages are at http://dmiessler.com/study/, and include http://dmiessler.com/study/nix/commands/lsof, http://dmiessler.com/study/tcpdump, etc.

    If anyone could take a look and see what I'm doing wrong I'd appreciate it. I'm floating the two columns, and I'm using clear: both for the footer, which is what I thought I was supposed to do.

    Thanks much,

    -Daniel

    This is only in FF right? As you're not using an element to contain your floats, you may need to apply an additional clearing element in your HTML just above the footer.

    I'm sorry, what do you mean by clearing element?

    Edit: I've Googled it and found some good stuff; thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Got it cleared up; I put a clearing DIV at the top of my footer.php and fixed the whole site in one shot. Thanks!
