I was doing some finishing touches on the site today (and will be for a while) and I was having quite a difficult time keeping the footer at the bottom of some of my shorter pages. Thankfully, I found the solution, by Matthew Taylor (sounds like a good name to me) over on his blog here: http://matthewjamestaylor.com/blog/keeping-footers-at-the-bottom-of-the-page His solution is great because it only requires CSS, and according to him, it’s completely valid. I did notice a weird dotted line showing in IE8, but I’m not sure how to remove it yet.
As with any CSS changes, it took some pulling and arm twisting to get the CSS working, but I was able to get it going right here! Thanks a lot Matthew.
If anyone has a suggestion for removing that dotted line in IE8, let me know in the comments.
