Hi All, Im in the process of improving my tribute page to use grid instead of bootstrap. Im having some trouble making the footer sticky. Is anyone able to take a look at my codepin where I have placed a simplified version in effort to figure this out?

@richRocksCodeBlocks I am sure there are better solutions but here's the one I came up with:

<footer class="footer">
    <p>&copy; 2018 Richard Personius</p>
basically, keep the footer separate and apply the following css:
.footer {
/*     grid-area: footer; */
    background-color: #96cb7d;
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 0;
    width: 100%;
  height: 50px;
.footer p {
  display: inline-block;
  vertical-align: middle;
and the .wrapper you'll nee to add one line: min-height: 100vh
I hope it helped.

@srlhyo I really appreciate your help. I've been racking my brain on this footer longer than I would like to admit. With your solution, I have a gap below the footer of about 60px. I tried to mitigate it by setting the .main margin-bottom to -60px. I suppose footer must be outside of .main for this to work.

that's right!
footer should come after .wrapper closing div tag.
Do you get me?

@sleepless-mind JSON data will have to be looped over to put it into arrays the way you want it. You have to do it yourself. JSON is JavaScript Object Notation. So it's always going to be an object. But you can loop over the properties and build different arrays from it

Thanks, Nate! Working on it right now

@1532j0004kg you're looking for a project to do or want to see someones?
Jun 10 2018 17:54
@Nate Ended up finding a typo in the AJAX request - instead of dataType:"json", I had datatype:"json" and that's why the array wasn't working - I gotta watch out for little stuff like that haha

@richRocksCodeBlocks You almost have it with your grid approach. Add min-height: 100%; to your .wrapper class.
You may want to add a max-height property to your .main class as well after doing that

@gulsvi Thank you for helping me out with this.
@srlhyo I do. Thanks you for your help. Im incorporating into the actual tribute page now. This community is awesome.

Hey guys, I've been trying to use overflow: hidden to make the text in the image grid cells be hidden until hovering over them causes them to move up, but it doesn't seem to be working, I've tried in several containers, the main gridsection one, and timeline-img containers, but nothing seems to work, any ideas? Pen here:

@hellhound123 I am not clear on what exactly you are trying to achieve...
or wait maybe I do...

set a height to ur img container @hellhound123
soo it dont default to auto (which will hold all content including the things u trying to hide)
    height: 200px;
Jun 10 2018 19:23
@moigithub Thats one way to do it if you want to define your values
Otherwise you can set the figure as position relative, figcaption as position absolute and use the overflow hidden.
It will stop the figure from extending to include the fig caption and you can move it freely on hover

Hey, does anyone know the best way to serve a React app through Express so I can have the front end and server in one Heroku app?
Corey Lewis
Jun 10 2018 20:06
@charliearlie I believe you'd want to use something like react-router-dom and have express just serve the bundle with express.static

@buiphuking Laravel is a PHP framework. Meaning it's server side. You can't run that locally unless you install a webserver to host it

@moigithub thanks this worked! @DarkxPunk I haven't managed to get this to work, but I'll try this method on the next one!

Corey Lewis

yes games are made with programming
