„Sticky footer“ keeps the footer at the bottom of the browser window, even if your page length won’t fill the whole page.
If the page length is higher than your actual browser window, the footer is placed at the end of the page – what means in this case, it won’t be visible in all situations.
To have a „footer“ element always at the bottom of the browser window, don’t use a „footer“,
Ok, I see this works, thanks. But it only displays correctly (and by "correctly", I mean the footer sits in front of the page's main content when the browser window's size is reduced) if I create the footer on a page which contains my main content (like my Home page, for example), and the footer is assigned to the topmost layer.
If I create the sticky footer on the Master page, the Home page content sits in front of the sticky footer when the browser window size is reduced. It begs the question, is there a way to make the content on a Master page display in front of content on my Home page?
Put the footer on your master in the top most layer and take care that on your pages nothing is in that layer.
Layers work site wide and not only page wide.
Yes this works perfectly. Many thanks.
