Support » Fixing WordPress » Footer not sticking tried everything

  • Well, I tried everything but my footer doesn’t stick.
    But I mostly would love that the length of the page will expand when I add more pictures, so everytime I upload something it expands so the image can be seen.


    BUT mostly I would love to have infinity scroll, but i tried everything and nothing works.

    BTW: please explain clearly what to do and how, because I still have not much skills, so tell me what file name etc.
    where to paste te code, how to get everything explained clearly

    Hi David,

    You can get your footer to stick to the bottom if you set a minimum height for your content area.

    You can do this by opening your style.css file and changing line 106 from:

    #content { background: url(images/content-bg.png); border-top: 1px solid #ffffff; }


    #content { background: url(images/content-bg.png); border-top: 1px solid #ffffff; min-height: 90%; }

    Also thought you should know that your theme has hidden spam links. If you go to your site and do a right click – view source you will see an area that starts with:

    <div style="display: none;">

    followed by some links to some spammy free wordpress theme sites.

    thanks for helping at that part, but now i think i have 2 more problems:

    1: the addition footer doesnt add to the main footer (the grayisch texture with the horizontal stripe)

    2: The photos still don’t fill up the space, and is this possible to set it that the footer and page will expand after added some more photo’s?


    [Per the Forum welcome we ask you not bump posts]



    This is the method that I use and it works IE6 and up… hope this helps:

    I already told the sticking is solved, but now the grayisch texture is all half way. so

    Well, first of all… you are rude and I have half a mind not to bother helping you anymore. Second, the reason your grey area is so large is because you are doing your “sticking” piece WRONG.

    You have set height’s of 3000px and ridiculous padding on your #content-shadow div. Just because the footer is “sticking” doesn’t mean it’s right. And technically the footer isn’t sticking, it’s just so unbelievably large that it’s going to sit down there no matter what.

    Relax and read up on how it’s done properly and learn something. You are frustrated because you want people to do the work for you. Learn how to do it properly yourself by reading documentation given to you by people who are knowledgeable and know what they are talking about. That is the point of these forums… to learn. Not to get free work.

    sorry puppet, I think I clicked by mistake on caps lock, sorry about that.

    Can you maybe qoute the exact text or tell me where it starts with so I can start editiing

    btw, does your help also applie to automaticly expand the size of the page when more pictures are added?

    PS: sorry

    Yes. Don’t do that. No really, don’t do that and stop using that theme.
