Keeping a footer (from a master page) on the bottom RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have built a two column masterpage and incvluded a contentplaceholder for each column.  I have also added a footer and a "spacer" which is just a red line above the footer.  I need to keep the footer and the spacer below the content on any pages that templeate the masterpage.  My problem is the when I add a dropdown or a grid, they expand over the footer.  The problem seems to be in making the contentplaceholder(s) liquid and therefore keeping the footer on the bottom.  I have a screen shot however I do not know how to attach it to this post.

  • Hello,


    Welcome to LINQ to SQL forum!


    Could you please specify the question?   Are you using LINQ to SQL databinding?  


    Good day!

  • I am guessing you are currently using div styles to place the footer on the master page.  I have found a website that had code to keep a footer locked to the botttom of the page reguardless of browser type, but dont have it saved anymore.  The problem was in IE 5 or 6 a property didn't work as it was suppost to.  I found it easier to replace the div styles with tables, and just let the footer be placed below all the content.

  • I agree with LitEnders. In addition I would also encaspulate the ContentPlaceHolders in a <asp:Panel></asp:Panel>. Yes, Sun I guess this should be moved from the LINQ to web development group :) as the developer is not having issues with accessing data, only presenting.

  • Thanks gentlemen for all of your comments and suggestions.  I have located several sites dealing with "Liquid Development" which provided guidance.  I spend most of my time in the LINQ forums and neglected to place this in the proper forum.  Sorry for the mistake and thanks once again.
