Footer Positioning

Within the footer display options area, you have two choices for how you’d like your Footer area to be positioned:

  1. At the bottom of the page – With this option, once a visitor scrolls down to the bottom of a page, the Footer area will then display in the browser window at the bottom of that page.
  2. Fixed to bottom of the browser window (always visible) – Under this option, the footer area of the site will always appear in the browser window at the bottom, no matter where the visitor is at on the page.
