# Issue with positioning the footer text and footer rule

Consider this MWE, why is the footer rule position different on page 1 compared to the rest of the pages? Also related to the footer, how can I move the footer text down without affecting the position of the rule or the rest of the objects on the page.

Overall page layout

Page 1

Notice the position of the rule in relation the grey rectangle and the example-image.

Your MWE produces a warning about the \headheight being too small. It notes that it will change this but then page layouts might be inconsistent (or words to that effect).
Before \begin{document} Put
\setlength{\headheight}{14pt}
