I've noticed that some subdomain blogs, but not all, have extra padding on the bottom of their footers, which has the effect of lengthening the page. Here are a few examples:

Again, this is not the case for all blogs, so maybe it is theme-related? See this blog for a counter-example:

  • Priority name changed from Normal to Low

Hold on while I look for a priority lower than "low" :)

Probably just the way that certain themes declare styles in different orders, etc. I'll see if there's anything quick I can do globally. If it's something only fixable within certain themes, I'm afraid we'll probably just have to live with it.

I'm going to make the footer a bit shorter, by removing the explicit height. That will help with most cases. As for the padding around the element, there's not much I can do, as this is caused by different markup in each theme.
