How to make a footer stay at the bottom of the page in HTML and CSS

Tuesday 21st August 2012

I am fairly new to HTML and very new to CSS but I’m slowly getting the idea of how they gel. Upon practicing with web site construction I have found it easy to set up the html building blocks and style them with css. However, every time I come to the footer I always have problems, such as it going to the right of a sidebar or just under the header, or overlapping another element . I have searched many times for solutions online and some don’t work while others seem far too complicated for me to understand, and understand I must if I want to make a living from this market sector. Therefore I have started experimenting. The first attempt at aligning a footer was amateur but effective, if you take a look at my previous web design post (by clicking the web design category) you will see what I mean. I have since progressed from there. I was building a site for a friend and he needed a footer to align nicely at the bottom of the page but only under the main written content section. This made my job even more complicated but I pulled it off and here is how.

War Horse Review | 2011 Movie by Steven Spielberg

Today I had the opportunity to indulge in a HD Blu Ray copy of this War Horse movie. I had not seen it before but had heard it titled as Steven Spielberg’s Masterpiece. As a fan of many Spielberg movies that quote certainly got me interested. Unfortunately I suffered a nervous breakdown in early 2012 so it has taken me quite a while to get back into movies but now that I have seen this film, here is my honest review. From the little I had heard about the film, I still refused to get on the band wagon about how this film was sure to be about a horse. Even if that statement was to be proven true I still believed it would be something more special than a film with a horse as the main star. It was I that was proven correct. This movie is more about the people who were involved within the horses life. Kind of like the owners of an unusual car, the car is pretty much irrelevant but each owner of that car has a life story. The movie starts with the birth of the Colt and sees him sold at auction, unbroken, to a farmer who’s drunken state sees him arrogantly outbid his own landlord. Even though the farmer overspent, he had intended to buy a horse that day but not this type. He needed a horse capable of ploughing a field and this type of horse was not it, or was it? Things start going downhill for the farmer and then the story get’s going. All in all, the horse gets involved with maybe a dozen or more people throughout war time Europe through various people from all walks of life but I will not go into details about all that as I do not wish to give out spoilers.

Betfair Bookmaker Review – Review

This is my second and final bookmakers review. Not because I haven’t tried many, as I have tried ALL the major companies. But because out of all the ones I’ve experimented with, only two break free of the norm. The first was Bet365, which you can read more about in my previous bookmakers post. Access that post by clicking the bookmakers category. The second to make the list is obviously this one you are reading right now, but why? Betfair is good for other reasons. It is unique from all the other online bookmakers as it gives users the chance to BE THE BOOKMAKER. Continue reading

As mentioned in my previous website review about Maximiles, the Internet reward site. There are many third party companies which Maximiles pay out points for signing up with. One such company is Costa Bingo! I had never personally heard of the company but Maximiles were issuing a lot of points for a simple £10 deposit and wager. Therefore this review will be used to reveal interesting information about Costa Bingo and partly Maximiles.
Continue reading Review (Internet Reward/Loyalty Web Site)

I now consider myself an expert web surfer. Having my first internet ready PC in 1997, I began my surfing through a 56k modem. Now on a super fast broadband connection, I spend most of my day on the Internet. One site I use most regularly is Maximiles, an Internet loyalty scheme site which rewards customers with points known as “maximiles”. The site was originally known as Ipoints but was bought out by the previously mentioned company who I believe to be Spanish, judging by their .com version. This site is known as a reward scheme as customers get rewarded for their loyalty to third party companies who are affiliated with Maximiles. How it works is like this:-

How fast does the Earth rotate around the Sun?

The Earth takes one year to complete a full orbit of the Sun, most people know that. However, the exact amount of time is said to be 365.25 days and that is why we have a leap year every 4 years to make up for the extra day. Read More about the year here.

Now we know how long the Earth takes to travel around the Sun, now we must move on to mathematics.

To find the circumference (or orbit) we need the diameter and then to multiply it by Pi.

According to wiki answers the Earth varies in distance from the Sun each cycle but the average distance is as follows :-  92,955,887.6 Miles or 149, 597, 870.7 Km
