[resolved] Adjust Height. (8 posts)

    Is there a way to adjust the height of the page based on the resolution. I add a page which has very less content. It looks odd in a bigger resolution monitors. The footer floats in the middle of the page. I want to know if there is a way that the footer adjusts automatically based on the screen resolution.

    Yes what you could do if you have some CSS knowledge. You could give the main body of the your content a min-height:600px or something like that. That way even if you only have 100px of content the site knows to stay at the minimum of 600px.

    what happens if the resolution of the screen is less than 600px?

    It will push the end of the site beyond the 600px. The height is not determined by the resolution of monitor but what you have set in your css file. I was using 600px as an example… you can set it to relatively anything you want for the desired effect you want.

    ok thanks Robert. I guess there is no way the page adjusts according to the screen resolution.

    The short answer is no not really… 

    The longer more technical answer is you may want something called the sticky or fixed footer. But that does require a lot of skill and still needs content to fill the page. It should also be noted that fixed or sticky footer themes aren't all the common…

    If your theme is working for you may want to find one that closer matches what your looking for here: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/
