I am coding a web interface for a University project and I have been dealing with this issue:

I want my footer fixed at the bottom so it is in place no matter which screen I am using or if I toggle the full screen mode

It works in all the other browsers except IE7 (I do not have to support previous versions)

HTML

<div id="wrapper">

<div id="menu">
<a href="information.html" rel="shadowbox;height=500;width=650" title="INFORMATION" >
<img src="images/info.png" alt="information icon" />
</a>
<a href="images/bricks_of_destiny.jpg" rel="shadowbox[gallery]" title="IMAGES" >
<img src="images/image.png" alt="image icon" />
</a>
<a href="music_player.swf" title="MUSIC" rel="shadowbox;height=400;width=600" >
<img src="images/music.png" alt="music icon" />
</a>
<a href="#" title="MOVIES"><img src="images/television.png" alt="movies icon" /></a>
<a href="quotes.html" title="QUOTES" rel="shadowbox;height=300;width=650" >
<img src="images/male_user.png" alt="male user icon" />
</a>
<a href="#" title="REFERENCES">
<img src="images/search_globe.png" alt="search globe icon" />
</a>
</div>
<a href="images/destiny_1.jpg" rel="shadowbox[gallery]" title="IMAGES"></a>
<a href="images/destiny_carma_jewell.jpg" rel="shadowbox[gallery]" title="IMAGES"></a>
<a href="images/destiny-joan-marie.jpg" rel="shadowbox[gallery]" title="IMAGES"></a>
<a href="images/pursuing_destiny.jpg" rel="shadowbox[gallery]" title="IMAGES"></a>

<div class="clear"></div>


<div id="destiny">
Discover more about the word <span class="strong">DESTINY </span>! Click one of the icon above!
(F11 Toggle Full / Standard screen)
</div>

<div id="footer">
<ul id="breadcrumbs">
<li>Disclaimer</li>
<li> | Icons by: <a href="http://dryicons.com/" rel="shadowbox">dryicons.com</a></li>
<li> | Website by: <a href="http://www.eezzyweb.com/" rel="shadowbox">eezzyweb</a></li>
<li> | <a href="http://jquery.com/" rel="shadowbox">jQuery</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
</div>

CSS


#wrapper{
text-align:center;
margin:0 auto;
width:750px;
height:430px;
border:1px solid #fff;
}
#menu{
position:relative;
margin:0 auto;
top:350px;
width:450px;
height:60px;
}
#destiny{
position:relative;
top:380px;
color:#FFF;
font-size:1.5em;
font-weight:bold;
border:1px solid #fff;
}
#breadcrumbs{
list-style:none;
}
#breadcrumbs li{
display:inline;
color:#FFF;
}
#footer{
position:absolute;
width:750px;
height:60px;
margin:0 auto;
text-align:center;
border:1px solid #fff;
bottom:0;
}
.clear{
clear:both;
}


The white borders are there only for debugging purposes

Any suggestion is appreciated

Where does it sit in IE7?

Maybe you need to set a min-height of 100% like:


html, body{ min-height:100%; }
