    For some reason, the footer is ending up on the right hand side when it should be at the bottom. I’ve checked all my divs and they appear to be right.

    I’ve validated it and there is one error having to do with the script line in the header which shouldn’t affect the placement of the footer.

    It looks fine in IE. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Jane,

    You have to close that div which is left open and your footer should display correctly.


    Unfortunately, I can’t find the div I’ve left open. I’ve checked and checked (and usually the validator will show if a div is unopened).

    In fact, when I include a closing div before the footer, the validator notes that there is an unnecessary closing div.

    Am I missing something so obvious?

    Hi Jane,

    All divs are closed. However, I think it has go to do with <div id=”footer”> This div is the last div. If you place it inside your main div … the div that contains all other divs it should solve the problem.


    I put a <div class=”clear”> right before the <div id=”footer”> and that seemed to do the trick. Thanks for helping me think about it.
