Wordpress loop

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me with a 'if' statement in my wordpress loop.php file.

I wanted to have two different category layouts, so i placed the following 'if' statement in both my category.php and loop.php files to get the desired result.

<?php if (is_category('22') || cat_is_ancestor_of(22, $cat)) { ?>

//new layout here

<?php } else { ?>

//original layout here

<?php } ?>

However it works but my footer breaks on the new layout.

I have attached both files for you to see the code.

The original category layout is here:
http://www.bluebean.org.uk/category/web-design-portfolio

The new blog layout so far is here:
http://www.bluebean.org.uk/category/blog

Notice the footer. Hope someone could shine some light on the issue.

Thanks,

Andrew

The problem is on this page:

http://www.bluebean.org.uk/category/blog/planning-your-website

at the bottom, the footer doesn't spread 100% of the screen

This page does:

I am not seeing a problem but from your screen shot it looks like footer is inside wrapper. So possibly in your new-layout-here part you have forgotten to close a div.
