centred fixed footer ?

using css sculptor to start me off, i have created a nice 2 column layout with a full width header and a fixed footer, ie the footer sits nicely at the bottom of the page.

at the moment, the footer is full width

is there a way in which i can make it the same width as the content wrapper and centred, yet remain anchored at the bottom of the page ?

Hi Graig,

When you're creating the design in CSS Sculptor, you wold just choose 'fixed normal' instead of 'fixed full width'.

But to adjust an existing one, you would need to add a width property to the footer div, and add auto right and left margins.

Supposing your outer wrapper has a width of 88em, then you would adjust the #fixedFullWidthFooter css to read:

#fixedFullWidthFooter {
margin-top: -17px;
position: relative;
width: 88em;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;
}
