Want to make the page footer stick to the bottom of the viewport, no matter the amount of content the page has? Check out footerStick for a CSS only way of achieving that effect.

I personally don’t care much for footers that always stick to the bottom of the viewport, but I know that many others like them.

  1. I use this on my own site, and it works quite well. My only complaint is that occasionally, it’ll require a refresh in Safari to get it all the way down, although this is probably caused by my implementation.

  2. Increase font size and it quickly breaks; it’s all based on pixel sizes. Surely it wouldn’t be too hard to use ems instead?

  3. The last line of text gets cut-off at certain screen resolutions in IE.
