Footer area "floats"

Recommended Posts




I've found this issue on all of my DMS site and was wondering if anyone could shed some like on this problem. 


I've found that if there isn't "enough" content on a page, the footer will float up (almost as though the text has quantifiable weight to keep it pinned in place.)


Here's an example of the floating footer:


  • (one post in the category, footer in the middle of the page)
  • (2 posts in the category; footer is now a quarter the way up the page)
  •  (10 posts in the cateogry; footer is now "weighed down" and is where it should be)


Any ideas why this is?

This is because the footer area in DMS isn't a sticky footer, if you want to have your footer at the bottom of your site regardless of content, you will need to use custom CSS and/or jquery.

Ah, OK...well in this case I might just hide the footer on pages where it goes a bit wonky. Seems like the easiest way to get around the problem right now. thank you

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
