Iam setting up a home page for a site with an wordpress feed of the most recent 3 posts. The problem I'm having is how to get the content area (that includes the wordpress blog) to shrink and expand with the various sizes of the combined blog pots and for the footer to stay below this shrinking/expanding content. If I set no positioning then the footer stays below the content but once I set absolute positioning (required for some of the other elements within the content) the footer jumps back up the page.

Is there a simple way to set a nested div container to shrink and expand with its contents and for the footer below it too stay below it! Sorry if this is basic stuff, my knowledge of CSS is pretty sketchy
