Hey guys, thanks so much for all of the help you provide!
I've found another problem with IE8. I'm kicking myself for not testing within this browser with every change that I made. Perhaps this was due to my noobiness as well. In any event, there is a division problem with the main body of content versus the footer. In most of the URLs, including those associated with Buddypress stuff, like the Members Directory url and the Forums url, generated Posts, etc., the division line is great and all of the footer content is housed appropriately. However, with any created wordpress "pages," the division line is almost at the very top and very close to nav bar, hiding behind the main content. As a result, the footer content is compressed up to abut adjacent to the end of the page content, wherever that is for each individual page. I've created a link to a little screencast video to illustrate exactly what I mean. Any help would be much appreciated. Here's the link:
