Footer like header

Hi guys,

it's me again smile
I am trying to add a footer to my pages that looks like the header. I managed to do it but I can't see the whole footer (it has an height of 140 px) because the scroll bar (up/down) does not appear. Is there something that calculates the height of the page?

Thanks!

Re: Footer like header

I have also another question: how come the header shows in every page while the footer doesn't? Moreover if I put the footer right below the div with id "wrapper" and I open the sidebar it does not overlaps the footer while overlaps the header. I am sure I am missing something but I can't understand what sad

Re: Footer like header

Are you talking about that plugin?

Footer should be shown on each page in the right bottom corner. (is it on http://metro-webdesign.info ? )
Overlapping can be something with the z-index.  Hard to know what you mean without seeing it. Do you have your site online somewhere?

Re: Footer like header

I am really sorry but I posted my second post maybe while you were answering me so I missed your reply.
The plugin seems to work just fine. i just have to redesign it according my needs smile
Anyway I have a couple of questions:

1) are you still developing this great UI?
2) is it possible to make request about features to add in newer versions?

Thanks for your time, suggestions and help smile

Re: Footer like header

I'm working on a new version and trying some ideas but it's quite experimental so don't expect a new version soon smile

Suggestions can always be given in the "ideas" subforum wink

Re: Footer like header

Thanks surely I will post my suggestion as I did here: http://metro-webdesign.info/forum/viewtopic.php?id=758

Getting back to this plugin I was just playing around and realized that it stays where it is, while I need it to scroll up and down with the page exactly like the header does. Is it possible?

Thanks smile

Re: Footer like header

I've put something together but it's far from optimal: https://www.dropbox.com/s/syqwxzgygpnev … aptive.zip

I've been playing with a css-only solution (by far the best option) but things like min-height etc didn't work well.
So now it's this javascript-hacky-thing. QUite bad since it can slow down the page, show lag... but it was the only thing that worked well (the hard part is: keeping it in the same place while scrolling the tiles, and making it stick on the bottom)

Maybe it's useful for you.

Re: Footer like header

Well what can I say? Thanks a lot, you've been very kind smile

Yes this is what I was looking for and I believe an optimized version can be added in the new release, maybe with the possibility to add/remove it wink
