Bootstrap 4 – Sticky footer – Dynamic footer height

I need to put a sticky footer on my pages , however i don’t have a definite height set for my footer . On smaller screens – the rows resize and footer becomes longer .

Therefore , the default sticky footer example provided on getbootstrap does not work since it requires a fixed footer height.

Any way to implement this ?

/* Sticky footer styles
-------------------------------------------------- */
html {
  position: relative;
  min-height: 100%;
}
body {
  /* Margin bottom by footer height */
  margin-bottom: 60px;
}
.footer {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 0;
  width: 100%;
  /* Set the fixed height of the footer here */
  height: 60px;
  line-height: 60px; /* Vertically center the text there */
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
}


/* Custom page CSS
-------------------------------------------------- */
/* Not required for template or sticky footer method. */

body > .container {
  padding: 60px 15px 0;
}

.footer > .container {
  padding-right: 15px;
  padding-left: 15px;
}

code {
  font-size: 80%;
}

Use min-height instead of height to make it variable height.

Also on smaller screens just remove the absolute position and make it static.

Now that Bootstrap 4 is flexbox, a sticky footer can be done using…

<wrapper class="d-flex flex-column">
    <nav>
    </nav>
    <main>
    </main>
    <footer>
    </footer>
</wrapper>

body, wrapper {
   min-height:100vh;
}

main {
    flex:1;
}
