    Could someone please tell me how this was done...
    Look at the fixed banner at the bottom of this page:
    Content flows behind the fixed footer with only one scroll bar, just as seen in the site.
    Is fixed footer not the way to go?
    This is probably very simple but I have not been able to figure it out. HELP!

    I would like to know this too, it is much like the way certain things stick to the bottom of the browser window on Facebook. How do they do that?

    OK - the fixedFooter div is positioned fixed (not absolute) and given a class (note the positioning tacking it to the bottom, and the z-index above the rest of the elements on the page):

    .fixedFooter {
    bottom: 0;
    left: 0;
    position: fixed;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 99;

    And the HTML Divs basically look like this:

    <div class="fixedFooter">
    <a href=""><img src="imagename.png" alt="alternate Text" /></a>
    </div><!-- close fixedFooter -->

    <div id=PageWrapper>
    <div id=Header>
    <div id="topNav">
    (navigation menu here)
    </div><!--close topNav -->
    </div><!--close Header -->
    <div id="innerContainer">
    (....all the rest of the stuff on the page....)
    <!-- close innerContainer -->
    <!-- close pageWrapper -->

    Notice that everything on the page comes after the fixedFooter div in the HTML, so it stays stuck to the bottom of the page and "floating" at z-index:99 above the other page content, so the rest of the page seems to slide behind it. The main pageWrapper has to be styled to scroll and some other stuff, perhaps like this:
    #pageWrapper {
    background: url("images/imagename.jpg") repeat-y scroll center top transparent;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 980px;

    The pageWrapper has to have a width that will be smaller than the fixedFooter so the "sliding behind" illusion will work. This is probably not all that is required, but this should get you started on the right track.

    You don't actually have to put the fixed footer in before the rest of the HTML. It will work after the content is inserted as well. So you can put it at the bottom, before the </body> tag. That's what I usually do with it.

    Three things you'll also want to consider:

    1) Padding. You'll want some form of top padding for your fixed footer so that the text doesn't directly collide with your image.

    2) A background color. If you don't specify one, your text may overlap plain text in your footer and it will look weird.

    3) Bottom padding on your content div that it at least covers the height of your footer. Otherwise, your bottom content will get buried.

    Other than that, no thoughts.
