I am trying to create a footer and facing a problem while doing so...

This is my html code:

<div id="container">

<div id="main">

<div id="terms">

// content

</div> // closing terms 
</div> // closing main

 <div id="footer">
// content
</div>
</div> // closing container

And css code is

html, body {
    height:100%;
    margin:0;            
    background: #F0FAFF;
}

#container {
    min-height:100%;
    position:relative;
}

#main {
    height:100%;
    font-size:150%;
    clear:both;
    overflow:auto;
    padding-bottom:80px;
}

#footer {
    position:absolute;
    background-color:#FF6633;
    bottom:0;
    width:100%; 
    height:80px;             
}

#termsandpolicy {
position:absolute;
left:3%;
width:72%;
top:90px;
}

And result that I get is http://www.walknshine.com/termsofuse.php


What is the problem...I have searched in google a lot but not able to get any significant css code...plzz help....

Do you want it at the bottom of the page or of the screen? If at the bottom of the screen, change the position of #footer to fixed and add padding-bottom: 100px; to #termsandpolicy.

Thnx for the reply twiss but I want the footer to be at the bottom of page...

take the positioned footer outside of any other container, else it is position relative to the container, not the screen

<div id="container">
<div id="main">
<div id="terms">// content
</div> // closing terms 
</div> // closing main
</div> // closing container
<div id="footer"> content </div>

take the positioned footer outside of any other container, else it is position relative to the container, not the screen

<div id="container">
<div id="main">
<div id="terms">// content
</div> // closing terms 
</div> // closing main
</div> // closing container
<div id="footer"> content </div>

Thanx almostbob...tht did it...but cant I get single scroll in http://www.walknshine.com/termsofuse.php....

Change height to auto (#main). Or just remove it, auto is the default.

Change height to auto (#main). Or just remove it, auto is the default.

I have done that...now here is the issue

Go to http://www.walknshine.com/index.php?organization=0

Same is in http://walknshine.com/privacy.php

The code is

<body>
<div id="container">

<div id="main">

<div id="terms">

// content

</div> // closing sample
</div> // closing main
</div> // closing container 

 <div id="footer">
// content
</div>
</body>

html, body {
    height:100%;
    margin:0;            
    background:#FFFFFF; 
}

#container {
    min-height:100%;
    position:relative;
}

#container {
    height:100%;
}

#main {
    height:auto;
    font-size:150%;
    clear:both;
    overflow:auto;
    padding-bottom:80px;
}

#footer {

    background-color:#3489C0;
    bottom:0;
    width:100%; 
    height:80px;             
}

Its doing precisely what you told it to
#container min-height:100% height:100%
plus the size of the footer

remove the height statements, they are redundant anyway

I have done and problem is solved for contents longer than the screen...

But for small contents like http://www.walknshine.com/about.php

OR

http://www.walknshine.com/index.php?organization=0

Footer gets located much above as per content's length

Here is the changed css code:

html, body {
    height:100%;
    margin:0;            
    background:#FFFFFF; 
}

#container {
    
    position:relative;
}

#container {
    
}

#main {
    
    font-size:150%;
    clear:both;
    overflow:auto;
    padding-bottom:80px;
}

#footer {

    background-color:#3489C0;
    bottom:0;
    width:100%; 
    height:80px;             
}

Same result is obtained from

html, body {
    margin:0;            
    background:#FFFFFF; 
}

// Rest is same

Is there any relation between the docstype used and my problem....its been while I am not getting any response...any suggestion can be helpful..:)
