Here's my CSS:

body {
   margin:0;
   padding:0;
   height:100%;
}
#container {
   min-height:100%;
   position:relative;
}
#header {
	background:#ffffff;
	padding:10px;
	text-align:center;
}
#body {
   padding:10px;
   padding-bottom:30px;   /* Height of the footer */
}

#body_container {
width:1000px;
margin: 0 auto;
height:100%;
}

#footer {
   position:absolute;
   padding-top:8px;
   bottom:0;
   width:100%;
   height:30px;   /* Height of the footer */
   background:#000000;
   text-align:center;
}

Open in new window


Here's my HTML:

<html>
<body>
   <div id="header"><IMG SRC="images/admin_header.jpg"></div>
   <div id="body">
            <div id="body_container">      
            
            <!--here's my content. Looks good until the page goes beyond the screen dimension and then the footer, while it looked good when you were perusing above the fold, is now
            in the middle of the screen. -->
            
            </div>
   </div><!-- concludes body --><BR><BR>
<div id="footer">
<table align="center">
<tr>
<td align="center" class="Footer">
<A HREF="http://www.specialpromotionsinc.com" target="_blank" class="Footer">Special Promotions Inc.</a> | 63 Music Square East | Nashville, TN 37203 | (p) 615.321.5130 | (f) 615. 320.1708
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</body>

In your CSS please remove  position:absolute;, try this change:

#footer {
   padding-top:8px;
   bottom:0;
   width:100%;
   height:30px;   /* Height of the footer */
   background:#000000;
   text-align:center;
}
