Grid height problems

Grid height problems

#1

Hey everyone. I can’t seem to be able to control the height of my rows efficiently. I’ve set 1fr for 6 columns which has remedied the problem of the rows resizing when the height of the page increases. But now the footer height increases along with the page height. How can I fix this? Thanks.
