Re: Keeping footer at the bottom of the page.
The bottom of the browser window you mean? It already is at the bottom.
This will be less of an issue once you have some topics and content. It will end up being much longer. If you want to ensure it’s always so far down (and you have to decide what ‘so far’ is, depending on what size monitor someone visits the site with) then you need to give the div a min-height and put the footer at the bottom of that. But I think it will be fine once you have some forums and topics and posts. Your footer will always be down so far you’ll have to scroll down to it (depending on your monitor resolution, I suppose.)
