How to Make Responsive Sticky Footer

This footer is fully responsive and works well on all small or large Tv devices. It is Flexible-Height sticky footers using the  CSS. You can easily adjust the height of footer by editing one line of CSS.

Let’s see the HTML, and we have a wrapper which will be our top area of the website. You can define the header and content area inside the wrapper.

<div id="wrapper">
  <div id="container">
    <p>Clean Sticky Footer SCSS Mixin</p>
  </div>
</div>

Next, we have a footer markup. We keep the footer separate from the wrapper so you can easily edit it and make it full width if you need.

<div id="footer">
	<ul>
    	<li>Home</li>
        <li>Products</li>
        <li>Shop</li>
        <li>Items</li>
        <li>Buy</li>
    </ul>
</div>

General Styling

Let’s take a look at the CSS. We start the CSS by setting the height: 100%; for both body and HTML.

html, body {
  height: 100%;
   font-family: lato;
}

The technique we are going to set the margin-bottom . It is depended upon the height of footer we want.

Ok, Here we make the wrapper height to 100%.

#wrapper {
  min-height: 100%;
  height: auto !important;
  height: 100%;
  margin-bottom: -30px;
   background: #f1f1f1;
}

For the footer, We need to set the height and height should be equal to the margin-bottom which we laid down for the wrapper. In our case both are 30px;

#footer {
  background: #0d8788;
  height: 30px;
}

We have prepared the demo, So you know how exactly footer work while sticky it at the bottom of the page.
