Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Styling the footer, part of Creating a Responsive Web Design.
- So now we're going to style our footer element.…So if I scroll down here,…we can see that we have our copyright symbol…and we have two hyperlinks inside of here.…So let's go back to our CSS.…Let's add a few lines.…I'll add a CSS comment here…called footer.…Then the first thing we'll do…is target the main footer element.…Let's come in here and set the font size…to .8em…So this is 80% of or 20% smaller than the base font size.…
Next, we'll set a margin to 40px on all four sides.…And next we'll set the color to…a little bit of a lighter gray.…So #, and 9 for red, green, and blue.…Next we'll target the div element inside of the footer.…If we go back to the HTML,…and scroll down, we added a div…with a class of content inside of here as well.…So here we'll type footer space .content…Put in our brackets.…
What we're going to do here,…is we're going to set a display type of inline.…So this is the default display type…for anchor links and span elements,…and what this basically does,…is allows that element to flow alongside of other content.…
