Bootstrap footer - flush it to the bottom

I can't flush footer to the bottom of the page. I am using Bootstrap. I googled it, but it is not working. I don't want it to be fixed at bottom. I want to scroll to get to it, but now is right after my page content and not at the bottom.

Jure, can you post your html? Or open a Codepen and link it? That should make it easier for others to help you debug the problem.

This is one fix (not sure if twitter bootstrap already has this built in!)

You'll need to give your html and body a height of 100%.

Give you footer absolute positioning, bottom: 0, left:0 and width: 100%.

Then go back to your body and assign a padding bottom that is the same as the height of the footer.

e.g. footer height: 200px, body padding-bottom, 200px

This will create a 'sticky' footer.

Does adding the navbar-bottom class not work? For example,

<nav class="navbar navbar-default navbar-bottom" role="navigation">
  <div class="container">
    <h1>Hello World</h1>

I tried the code from here http://cssreset.com/how-to-keep-footer-at-bottom-of-page-with-css/ The footer goes to the bottom but a part of the footer is not visible on the page, I have to scroll down to see the full footer. Could you let me know how to correct this issue.

Hi Jure,

This could be caused if you simply don't have enough content on the page to push the footer off the screen.

Add some random content and see if the footer disappears until you scroll down.
