Sticky Footer Using jQuery And CSS

To Create Sticky Footer It Takes Only Two Steps:-

  1. Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling

Step 1. Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting

We make a HTML file and save it with a name footer.html

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="footer_style.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function()
{
 var footer_height=$("#footer").height();
 $("#wrapper").css({'padding-bottom' : footer_height});
});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="header">
 <p>TalkersCode.com</p>
</div>

<div id="wrapper">
 <h1>Sticky Footer Using CSS And jQuery</h1>
</div>

<div id="footer">
 <p>TalkersCode.com</p>
</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create three div for header, content and footer and we add document.ready() function to get footer height and set that height to wrapper padding to adjust the padding dynamically.

Step 2. Make a CSS file and define styling

We make a CSS file and save it with a name footer_style.css

body
{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 min-height: 100%;
 position: relative;
 background-color:#BCA9F5;
}
#header
{
 background-color:#8258FA;
 height:70px;
 line-height:70px;
 font-size:35px;
 color:white;
}
#wrapper
{
 text-align:center;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 width:995px;
 position: relative;
 padding-bottom: 70px;
}
h1
{
 margin-top:100px;	
 color:#8258FA;
 font-size:45px;
}
h1 p
{
 font-size:16px;
}
#footer 
{
 position: absolute;
 bottom: 0;
 width: 100%;
 left: 0px;
 height: 70px;
 background-color:#8258FA;
 color:white;
}
#footer p
{
 margin-top:15px;
 font-size:30px;
}

In this step we add the position 'relative' to our body tag and wrapper tag and then add position 'absolute' to our footer to make our footer stick to bottom.You may also like smooth scrolling to div using jQuery.
