WebDev Articles I keep returning to

August 15, 2022

There are a few CSS articles on CSS-Tricks I find myself referring to over and over.

Sticky Footer, Five Ways: I think every app I have ever written requires having a footer that sticks to the bottom of the browser window if the page content is short, but pushes below the fold if the page is longer. Chris Coyer covers the options here. Now that IE is pretty much gone I expect that I will only ever use the flexbox or grid solutions, but there are solutions for older browsers.

A Complete Guide to Flexbox & A Complete Guide to Grid: I use flexbox all the time, but the exact names of the properties do not stick in my head...is this just me or did someone do a bad job of naming things? CSS-Tricks did a lovely job of organizing them and even have a nice printable version.
