Hi Gerald, You can refer back to this lesson: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/creating-a-sticky-footer

Essentially you wrap everything but the footer in a wrapper div, then give it a min-height of calc(100vh- the footer height); β€”Β that will ensure the footer sticks to the bottom if the page is smaller than the whole window.

Hope this helps!

Hi Gerald!

You setup a sticky footer with the css position:sticky property. Keep in mind, that the footer in this case (as it usually is) is at the bottom of the page, so there really isn't a use for sticky position in the case of the footer. Sticky position is usually used for the header, in the case there is some content -like an image- that's above the navigation menu. If it's your intention for the footer to stay at the bottom of the window and be visible all the time, you can simply use fixed position. Here are some examples for you to see the difference between sticky and fixed position:




Hope it helps, good luck!
