Sticky Footer Technique 2 Tutorial

View Demo

It takes four steps to make this footer stick to the bottom this layout. They are as follows, and all that is needed. Here is the previous sticky footer technique.

The CSS

#wrapper {
min-height:100%; 
width:700px;
margin:0 auto;  
position:relative; /* positions the #footer relative to the #wrapper */
}
p {
padding:0 0 80px; /* bottom padding clears the #footer */
}
#footer {
position:absolute; /* positions #footer at bottom of #wrapper */
bottom:0;left:0;
height:80px;
width:700px; 
}
		

The html

<div id="wrapper">

<p>#wrapper div</p>

<div id="footer"></div><!-- #footer sits inside the #wrapper -->

</div><!-- end #wrapper -->
		

And... now bring it all together!
