Sticky Footer won't stick

So I'm wondering if it's something in the html file with the divs but I'm unsure.

All I know is that when I open the preview on my browser the footer is in the middle. Maybe it's to the massive size of my screen and it's supposed to do that?

Also I'm getting a red block around min-width in the @media part, perhaps I'm inputing something wrong? Not sure.

I've been fiddling around with it for a while with no success. Any ideas?

I tried it on a node server and on codepen. If you want "Residents of the Best City Ever" on the bottom, it looks good to me. https://codepen.io/anon/pen/WabKbY

Good to know!

What's codepen btw, if I may ask? I've never heard of it.

There are several websites such as jsfiddle where you can create projects and get immediate feedback on the look, feel and functionality of your code. They're great places to play with code like a zen sandbox. If you have an idea, you can dwell on that idea without all the setup. Treehouse Workspaces are the same basic idea but they've done a good job of simplifying the UI specific to its purpose. Both are great for sharing with others.

Oh cool! I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for letting me in on this cool site.

Sweet! Glad to help out!
