AdaptiveTheme with a Sticky Footer and Skinr Styles
As far as starter themes go, the AdaptiveTheme is both flexible, robust, and has dozens of options within the admin interface for changing the layout and other site features. It also comes Skinr-ready.
However, it was lacking one minor feature, which is usually desirable in most designs. The sticky footer.
Referencing cssstickyfooter.com, I integrated their method of sticking the footer to the bottom of the browser window when the content is minimal, but once the content starts expanding the footer is pushed downward. This sticky footer solution works in all major browsers, including Google Chrome and IE 8. It works with floated 2-column layouts and we don't get overlap in resized browser windows.
I've seen several requests in forums for these two outstanding solutions to be brought together, so without further ado, I give you the AdaptiveTheme subtheme: StickyFeet!
As a bonus, I've also included some handy Skinr styles to get you started.
To use this subtheme, download AdaptiveTheme and place it in your sites/all/themes folder in your drupal installation:
so that it contains these folders:
Then go to your themes page:
and enable both the main AdaptiveTheme and the AT StickyFeet subtheme, and set Stickyfeet to default. Don't forget to take advantage of all the setting options for this theme! After enabling AT Sticky Feet, go to:
and click on "Advanced Theme Settings". Enjoy!
