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

Footer only sticking when the screen is maximized

I've read through all the other questions and my HTML/CSS seems to line up with the correct answers - but its still not working.

Any feedback?

  <div class="wrap">
    <header class="main-header">

I don't see you targeting the footer in your css. What exactly are you trying to do here?

I think you want the .wrap styles to apply no matter what the screen size is? If so, just move it outside the media query. Right now the min-height is only being applied on screens that are more than 769px wide. Anything smaller and the height will only fit the content.

There we go - I had it in the wrong spot.
