    is there a sticky footer that will stick to bottom of VIEWPORT?

    Hey guys, I'm a bit more designer, less of a coder. That said, Ive been searching all last night for a footer that will stick to the bottom of the viewport, no matter what. I saw position footer in the jquery lib but its pretty old and I'm not sure if it will work with Jquery1.3.2 and it also doesn't come with documentation that I myself could use to set it up. I'm still learning, not giving up, but I'm low on sleep and I need to finish this redesign. This is one of about 6 things I need to scratch off my to do list in the next 4 hours. Hopin for some guidance or a good point in the right direction.

    thanks for reading,
    Jon

    Why do you need to use jquery/javascript for this? There are plenty of tutorials available on Internet for sticky footer using CSS. Have you checked http://ryanfait.com/sticky-footer/ ?

    lookin for viewport not page, found that a year or so ago. Unless I'm sorely mistaken and this can be used to stick to viewport.

    no dice on that answer either after analyzing the markup. He just talked it up as if it were my answer

    I'm thinking this is going to be some form of javascript, unfortunately I'm not a JS master.

    Take a look at http://mark-allen.net/notes/layout/f...example04.html
    I think it uses the same technique as the one explained at http://www.cssplay.co.uk/layouts/fixed.html

    that first link is it exactly!

    I was just about to post that I think I have my terminology wrong and should probably be calling this a floating footer. I'm currently trying to figure out exactly how to get this to work with the second link you posted. Thanks for the help.
