    no need to sign up - just look here http://www.sglifeless.com/account.php?u=1 that problem almost certainly comes from the theme you're using. which theme is it? maybe the author can help you.

    I know of ways only two ways to solve your problem one easy method and one hard method.

    1. Wait till more discussions have been made, this will post the copyright notice down to the bottom.

    2. With some help from Javascript to push the copyright notice to the bottom of the user's browser window. From what I remember I don't think it's possible with CSS alone. You could look at the following article to provide some more insight onto how to do it.

    Hope that helps a little.

    EDIT: Sorry, my mistake. I miss-read what you meant. In this case, like itchy says it has something to do with the theme your using.

    EDIT: I looked at your stylesheet, and I haven't tested but I notice you have some negative margins. A negative margin will cause an element, say a header, to be pull up/across the page. For example margin-top: -10px; will move that element up ten pixels, and cover another element. This might be causing the copyright to go too high. Just not sure which value in the stylesheet it is. Possibly .Account small?

    I'd make the RoleHistory class have a min-height of something like 400px, but that's just me.

    IE6 will laugh at your foolishness.

    ok... I got it. By editing the margin-top at foot. ;) Thanks guys. .Foot { margin-top: 70px; border-top: 1px solid #ccc; margin-left: 235px; margin-right: 16px;

    After looking at the style sheet a little closer I think I have found a temporary way to make the footer clear the account page. I'm not 100% sure why it works, but it seems to do the trick.

    Change the following...

    .RoleHistory blockquote { margin: 0; padding: 6px; border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc; }

    To...

    .RoleHistory blockquote { margin-right: 0; /* <--- */ margin-left: 0; /* <--- */ padding: 6px; border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc; }

    sevenupcan, your method didn't work for me.. :(

    Hmm.. I haven't had chance to test it in any other browser except Firefox, that might be the reason. I also noticed there are 2 .RoleHistory blockquote's...

    .Discovery blockquote, .IpHistory blockquote, .RoleHistory blockquote { margin: 0px; padding: 6px; border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc; } .RoleHistory blockquote { color: #999; }

    Make sure the margin: 0; is changed to margin-right: 0; margin-left: 0; other than that I'm not sure what to suggest. You could add margin-bottom: 100px; that should have the same effect as adding a margin to the footer.

    Sorry all my attempts seem to have failed. :(
