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

why i m getting scroll bar ?

4 Answers

Guil used

p:last-child {
  margin-bottom: 0;

to remove the extra bottom margin between the wrap div and the footer that caused this problem. He never mentioned it in the video, but that is the difference between opening the new workspace and continuing with the one from the previous lesson. This is related to the collapsing margins we covered earlier.

Why does he selects a paragraph element?

Try changing the value of your media max-width. Maybe it's just your screen resolutions that's why your seeing a scroll bar. Because in my screen it's working fine.

I had this same problem. If you inspect the footer element on your page through the Chrome Dev tools, its value is actually 89.3333px instead of 89px. Change that value and it should get rid of the scroll bar. Let me know if that helps...

I can't exactly answer this, but I addressed the same topic in another similar post. Please check that out if you have a few minutes.
