  1. I'm trying to expand the height of the secondary sidebar to reach the footer, but I'm stuck. I bet it's going to be a d'oh moment, but can someone point me in the right direction?

    thanks

  2. In what way are you stuck?

    Apologies if this sounds obvious but it's simply a matter of adding a little CSS to style.css:


    #secondary{
    height:1000px; /*Change pixel value to whatever you want.*/
    }

    Obviously a fixed height for #secondary will only work if #content will always have a fixed height (or you can at least estimate it). The problem is, it won't as each post length and the amount of appended comments vary.

    Despite this, there's a workaround:

    Using a search engine, search for the keywords "css equal height columns". There's various approaches. I'm sure one will suit.

    Here's four for starters:
