# Increasing the height of footline in a beamer slide

I am using the following to customise my footline, but it does not seem to change the height of the footline. What am I missing

\setbeamertemplate{footline}
{
\leavevmode%
\makebox[\paperwidth]
{\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=\paperwidth,ht=2.25ex,dp=1.5cm, leftskip=.3cm,rightskip=.3cm plus1fill]{author in head/foot}%
{\large \url{www.yahoo.com}}
\end{beamercolorbox}%

}%
\vskip0pt%
}

While code snippets are helpful, it is best to add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. To do so, edit your post and add the relevant content. –  Werner Dec 23 '11 at 16:03

You can use the \fontsize{size}{skip} command, where size is your desired fontsize, and skip is the distance between lines (multiplied by \baselineskip)

\setbeamerfont{footline}{size=\fontsize{10}{12}\selectfont}


The height of footline is computed to fit the font. Is this what you want?
