    I was looking thought yahoo and bing checking on the sites content when i came across this page.

    I know there is content in the page so why was it displaying the footer.
    I decided to do a code view of the page and found this.

    HTML:
        <meta name="description" content="Media Center Studio
    
    [IMG]
    
    [IMG]
    
    Media Center Studio is a free application for Windows Vista and Windows 7 that enables you to customise Windows Media..." />
    This is the only page i have found. Is this normal?

    That meta description is normal, yes. It is generating the meta description using the content of the first post in that thread:

    http://fixitwizkid.com/threads/customize-windows-media-centre-with-media-center-studio.5056/

    The description shown in the search results will vary depending on your search terms. You searched for "FixitWizKid" and it matched that term to your footer, so it displayed the surrounding text. Search yahoo or bing for "fixitwizkid.com Media Center Studio". You will find that same thread but the description will be different.
