place a div element always bottom

A while ago I have searched for a solution to place a <div> element inside another <div> element always bottom. There are many solutions to put the div bottom from the whole html site but rar solutions to put it in the container div bottom.

Now here comes my solution …

I have one div container (calling it simple container) with a height of 100% (this container itself is placed for example in another parent container which has a height of 400px). And I have my div which should placed bottom of the container:

<div id="container" style="height:100%; position:relative;">
  <div id="bottom_div" style="height:10%; position:absolute; bottom:0px;"/>
</div>

The trick is to give the container div a position relative and then you can use the position absolute in the bottom div element. If the container div has no position style atribute it will not work.

  3. I couldn’t get this working under IE 6/7. Are you sure this is the right solution? Box is always in the top left for me.

    • Hmm … strange. We are using in our projects this solution for IE6/7 and firefox 2/3 without problems.

      You can check if your div containers not inside other block elements which have a position.

    • Doesn’t work at all if you are using a doctype (which is required if you need valid code).

      Doctype-declarations (eg ) brick this solution.

      This solution seems to work only if Browsers render the HTML in Quirks mode. Check out IE’s Developer Tools and try to change the document mode to see what i mean.

  11. What if, inside parent div, you have two div’s. The top div, height is dynamic, and bottom div is also dynamic, but bottom div must stick to the bottom. even the parent div is dynamic in height.

    Illustration: Its a left side bar, which needs to have ads at the side bottom, aligned to the content at the right side.

    Any tips for that?

  13. I can manage to place the element at the bottom just fine, but what I really need is 2 div elements at the bottom. This is for 2 ads on a right rail container, those always need to be at the bottom, but one above the other… makes sense? I know I could use javascript to calculate the height of the bottom div and place the other one with that info, but don’t know if there’s a pure css solution?

    • Why do you not put one “container” div at the bottom and inside this container, place your other div elements as you want?
