Can someone help me?

Can someone help me with this gray footer? I want an effect when I don't have to scroll to see the footer. I set the minimum height of the header and main section elements of 100vh - 89px (89px is the footer height) and its still not working. This whole task is bade on "Creating a sticky footer" video ("Getting started with CSS Layout" section of CSS Layout Basics Course).

You're pretty close, just a few more adjustments needed:

  • "min-height" won't constrain the size, use "max-height" or just "height"
  • you may want to add "overflow: auto;" to allow the "wrap" area to scroll
  • you may need to leave a bit more space for margins to avoid a double scrollbar
  • you could also eliminate the outer scrollbar with "body { overflow: hidden; }"
