How to keep footer at the bottom

.

alt text

When a page contains a large amount of content, the footer is pushed down off the viewport, and if you scroll down, the page ‘ends’ at the footer. However, if the page has small amount of content, the footer can sometimes ‘cling’ to the bottom of the content, floating halfway down the page, and leaving a blank space underneath.

Here is easy fix with pure CSS:

HTML:

<body>
    <div id="wrapper">
        <div id="header"></div>
        <div id="content"></div>
        <div id="footer"></div>
    </div>
</body>

CSS:

html,
body {
    margin:0;
    padding:0;
    height:100%;
}
#wrapper {
    min-height:100%;
    position:relative;
}
#header {
    padding:10px;
    background:#5ee;
}
#content {
    padding:10px;
    padding-bottom:80px;   /* Height of the footer element */
}
#footer {
    width:100%;
    height:80px;
    position:absolute;
    bottom:0;
    left:0;
    background:#ee5;
}
