HTML - Footer


The footer is an element that represents the footer of:

A footer:

  • contains information about its section such as
    • who wrote it,
    • links to related documents,
    • copyright data,
    • and the like.
  • represent
    • appendices,
    • indexes,
    • long colophons,
    • verbose license agreements,
    • and other such content


Some site designs have what is sometimes referred to as fat footers — footers that contain a lot of material, including images, links to other articles, links to pages for sending feedback, special offers… in some ways, a whole “front page” in the footer.

This fragment shows the bottom of a page on a site with a “fat footer”:
