    footer to bottom of page problem

    Hi all,

    Iv been following this tutorial on how to make my footer remain at the bottom of the page even if there is little content on the page instead of teh footer creeping up, unfortunately im having some trouble achieving the effect.

    The tutorial is here http://www.dave-woods.co.uk/index.php/css-fixed-footer/

    and my page is here http://www.kylehouston.com/paulsmyth_/tester.html

    Can anyone give me some advice to were im going wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    Kyle

    Hello kyllle,
    A lot of times it's easier to just follow the tutorial with an empty page and get it working before you put your content in. That page you link to does not use a div named #push so maybe you are mixing two different methods?
    It's a very simple layout and the tutorial covers everything... really nothing to add except suggesting you try again.
    Strip it down to the basics, validate and test as you add more and more content.

    Here's another example of a full-hieght layout. Also very simple.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
