Something I have tried to figure out for a long time.
Several of my design clients wish to use Web Yep on their sites, for maybe one or two pages. But, the body area being expandable, therefore pushing the footer down, has been a troubling issue for me.
Here is my workflow on the pages:
Draw the Master. ON this page draw a container so that the background can always have a different color or image than that of the area on the left and right sides of the page.
Inside this container, I place the curser and insert two html items. One I call BODY and the other FOOTER. I usually adjust size and add the margin on top of the body, so that it pushes down far enough for a header above the body, therefore pushing the footer down. Often, when I put in the web-yep items I click the box on the inspector of the BODY that would make this page variable length so that it can expand every time the customer changes information in his web yep item on whatever page is setup that way.
By the time I have done all this, the body and footer are no longer connected to the master page. The body, most always is different for every page, so this is not a issue…but the footer, if the footer has to be changed, I have to change it manually on every page, as it has no longer a connection to the master.
But, I do want to have the floating length so that the footer will push down, without me having to make room for the client each time he wants his page longer or shorter due to his web yep content.
This is a dilemma I have encountered and wondered what others of you have done to work with this issue.
Also, so much mouse clicking has left my shoulder and right hand in a bad way. Any ideas for that ?? LOL LOL
Any suggestions are welcomed.
