Fix footer at browser bottom

Recommended Posts


Is there any way to fix the footer at the bottom of the browser?

I tried to change html,site and #footer CSS but without sucess. The footer is positioned above the bottom part of the browser. As I applied a background image it looks odd.

livrosdaindigo.com.br (I am starting to customized yet, so it is a job in process)

Any help will be appreciated.

You'll need to resize the background image you're using to make sure that it fits the footer properly. Is this background a repeating background?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina,

I've changed the footer size to 61 pixels and set the background image to repeat (x and y). The thing is that using firebug I can see that the div footer is configured properly but the 'body' area opens an additional height below footer area.

#footer {

    background-image: url("http://www.livrosdaindigo.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/footer_bck.png");

    background-position: center bottom;

    background-repeat: repeat;

    bottom: -20px;

    height: 61px;

    padding: 0;


Tried to set the margin-bottom to 0 px but did not worked too.

I am little bit lost about how to fix my footer to the bottom of any page without these extra pixels below it.

I hope you can help me and I will keep trying.

Thanks a lot!

      In the footer of my website, I can't find where Leasing is located. I have to remove it.

      I was surprised to see I had no menu today - out of the blue - its actually moved to the bottom of the page!  After hours of fiddling and disabling every single plugin, leaving just plagelines the issue is still present.  See video for a basic text box - I moved it into the head and it jumps to the bottom and shows just above the footer but below the main content.  I have a temp fix by placing the menu into the first row on the main content but it does mean other than my home page, all other pages have no menu.  A quick fix is very urgent for this bug.

      OK - folks - back with another nit... The "back to top" link works - BUT - it's only active (i.e. clickable with the associated action following) when the mouse-over hovers over the footer area of the page. I did a quick change of the z-depth (to -1) and nothing made a difference. Any thoughts on how to make the *entire* back-to-top icon hover-able/actionable? Thanks!

      hi all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      site with calendar :
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(

      Hi guys,
      I have been unsuccessfully trying to get my 3-column widgetized footer aligned centered. The widget section itself is aligned left because the alignment appears to be controller the widget's content only. The container that contains the widget section is aligned centered. I have chosen a 3 column layout and I added 3 widgets, assuming they would be aligned centered.
      Any idea of what I may be doing wrong?
