Thanks Ron – I`ve set the footer widget heights to a min-height as suggested and it’s done the trick. Like you say, I can limit the number of entries in those widgets so I have some control over their maximum height.
the actual content widgets I can tweak with spacing etc (but if you have a fix for that also that’ll be even better).
I was meaning to get the content set to a minimum height so that it matched the height of my right side bar widget – but I just did the same as my footer widget and it’s looking great.
Again, great template 🙂
