CSS CSS Layout Basics Getting Started with CSS Layout Creating a Sticky Footer

Below 769px

I noticed that the "sticky footer" works great until the viewport goes below 769px. Trying to figure out how to make it work below 769px, ideas?

The media query ("@media") deliberately restricts the code within it to windows 769px or greater.

If you want it to work at all sizes, just remove the media query.

Thanks Steven! Instead of removing the media query, I moved the .wrap class outside of the media query like this:

.wrap { min-height: calc(100vh - 89px); }

/* ================================= Media Queries ==================================== */

@media (min-width: 769px) {

.container {
    width: 70%;
    max-width: 1000px;
    margin: 0 auto;


That way, I retained width and margin properties when the media goes below 769px :)
