Full width footer

I am trying to change my twenty eleven (child theme) footer to be full width in the browser, I moved my </div><!-- #page --> above <footer id="colophon" role="contentinfo"> in my footer.php and ensured that #colophon width is set to 100% in the css, body padding is 0, but footer will not expand, this is a child theme, any ideas?

Can you post a live URL? Are you sure there are no other divs that the footer is sitting inside of?

I see. On line 73 of your style.css your body has a max-width of 85em.  You'll have to remove that in order to get the full width of the page/window

That would do it. Any suggestions for centering body that still allows for the footer to expand both ways?

You really wouldn't want to center the body. Instead use the #page id and add margin:0 auto.  That should do it. Just make sure to keep the footer outside of it like it is now.
