Hi All,

I search through the forums here all the time. I was hoping one of the css gurus here might be able to help with a problem i'm having.

www.weymouthhonda.com

The footer works in everything i've tested so bar except for ie7. For some reason, it goes to the bottom of the window as the screen first renders and stays there. It doesn't clear floats to the actual bottom and then stick there.

Any ideas? Thank you so much in advance!

Andrew

Validated!

Thanks for the tip!

It's validated now, and the error still exists. Do I get a second change? I honestly have no clue!

Hello SpakAdv,

Good job on the valid code!
Looks like IE7 uses the negative margin to bring up the footer even if it means covering content. I've never seen this method of sticky footer before and I can't seem to make it work in IE7 either. I'd be curious to see what IE6 does with it.
I'm also not familiar with your method of nesting divs for your shadow images.

Maybe this will help. It's a very simple footer stuck at the bottom method that I know works.

I don't believe there is

I don't believe there is anything wrong with the stickyfooteralt method you've used. The problem seems to be with the javascript adding content. If you look at the page at first load, the footer is positioned correctly and then as the content is added, it passes the footer. As for a fix, I don't know...
