View Full Version : Footer - to the bottom, please.

11-23-2008, 05:59 PM
For a while now, I have been making layouts which either vertically auto-stretch or have specific height. Either way, the footer is pushed down, by whatever is above it.

So what is the instruction, which places a footer div at the bottom of the page, regardless of content area height? To fill in, I plan to use y-repeating backgrounds... You know the drill... ("as per Psuedo columns").

Then of course, I'd like to nudge the footer back up a little, to give it some respectable distance from the actual bottom of the page.

Many thanks,

Hello Docto_Varney,
I've had the best luck with the "FooterStickAlt" methods at themaninblue. (http://www.themaninblue.com/writing/perspective/2005/08/29/)

Check an example of mine:

Hello, Excavator.

I'm liking what I've read so far. Plus your own example. Many thanks!
