    Hello all!

    I have this website that is still in development http://www-dev-en.njl.ee
    and I have one problem here that I can't solve:

    In the main area of the page, I'm using absolute positioning and a fix height for that to be able to use the overflow:auto when there is too much data to display. But at the same time, I have some pages that uses some Tabs links, like this one: http://www-dev-en.njl.ee/ttable/timetable and because of this tabs, the height change for more 20px, overlaping the footer on the bottom.

    How can I make the footer to be in the bottom of the page, no matter the height of the main content?

    Thanks in advance!

    With positioning, you're stuck with the position and size, it can't be fluid.

    But if it's OK to have everything fixed in size, how about adding some
    height to weather and webcam so they line up with the bottom of your
    main content, then position footer underneath.

    It's getting so hard to troubleshoot because things are nested, positioned, and
    tables are mixed in with it.

    Yes I know, sorry for a bit of mess on the code. But the content is set up dynamically via Perl and it's something that I'm not allowed to change. You should see the previous one.. hahaha

    I will attach the main files that I redesigned. I bet is much better to visualize.

    The minimum height of the page will align with the webcamera menu, what I want is: when the main content be bigger, the footer will follow this. I don't know if I'm being clear..

    Thanks again.

    Wow, that was good!

    I just needed to adjust some 1px here and there to finish the height details.

    Great, I don't know what to say.

    Thank you ONCE more
