Footer padding/margin [SOLVED]

edit: always check your colons.

I can't figure out why my footer appears so close to the elements above it. Maybe it's been like this for a while and I've only just noticed. There's no gap like in the video so it looks cramped. I have looked through the code but haven't found where I went wrong. If I add in a margin to the top then it looks okay in single column format but when the page widens and becomes dual column the footer goes back to being cramped right underneath the columns.

footer { font-size: 0.75em; text-align: center; clear: both; padding-top; 50px; color: #ccc; }

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply. I finally found the error... an accidental semicolon instead of a colon. I should probably delete the question!
