Footer on real bottom of the page?

Asked by klaas4 (2186points) June 16th, 2008


I’m designing this new website but I have a problem.

As you already may see, the text continues, but the footer isn’t positioned on the absolute bottom of the page. Only on the edge of your browser window.

What do I have to do to position in on the bottom? The real bottom. I’ve searched and tried these solutions on my layout, but the damn thing won’t go to it’s place.

Link to site, css.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried setting the overflow:auto; on the div.content class?

Get rid of the absolute positioning, it’s not needed at all (like it almost never is). Just let the blocks stack next and below eachother. I’ve quickly edited your CSS to use normal positioning, will probably need some tweaking here and there (and learning float positioning), but I hope it’ll provide a good start:

did u forget “clear:both”?

bluemukaki and stephen: Thanks, but those didn’t work.

Vincent: That doesn’t make it very better. :) I understand your point, and with tweaking it could fix it, but because I don’t know how this is build up, I don’t know how to modify it.

Could you please give a better explanation of what you’ve done?

I have figured it out a bit, but it still isn’t how I want it. Can you help?

That depends: I can only help if I know what it is you’re trying to do, as the footer is at the bottom now :) (In Firefox at least)
