Making DIV tags expand the whole page

Here's what I want to do:

I have an aspx.net master page with a contentplaceholder. Below this contentplaceholder is a footer div. Standard stuff here.

In a page that uses this master page I have a div tag that expands (down) using some jquery code.

I want the footer to move down along when I click on the expanding div. Right now it does not. Does it have something to do with CSS position or float selectors?

Make your footer position:relative if it is not

if you have..
<div id="placeholder"> content </div>
<div id="footer">Copyright 2011</div>

Open in new window


and your jquery code increases the height of #placeholder, then #footer should move down with it unless you have some special CSS options set.

Try something like this in the CSS code. It might break your layout, but we can work with it from there. It's a lot better to let the browser handle this type of thing rather than hacking it up with more JS.
#placeholder {
  position: relative;
}
#footer {
  position: relative;
}
