Footer to bottom of page

We need the page footer to be at the bottom of the page. However, it should not always stick to the bottom of the page either i.e. when there is more than one page worth of content.

WordPress Colombo

Ever since I started out with mtwoblog.wordpress.com I have been fascinated by the whole WordPress ecosystem. Among many factors like the platform, the themes, the plugins, it also largely includes the active, growing community behind WordPress.

Get SSD for a solid performance boost!

When buying a new computer, we look at a few specs such as the processor, memory, storage and sometimes graphics. However, many of us fail to realize that what is actually slowing down our computer is the good old Hard Drive. Let’s take a look at one solution for this.
