Rich Footers

16 Sep 2005

There's been a bit of talk recently (and not so recently) about using the footer of a page for something more than credits or terms and conditions.

This does make sense; if people are going to be scrolling anyway then give them a bit of a reward for it. The danger comes if you put crucial information at the bottom of the page and your users miss it. It's a fine line, and I think that's why this method is rarely used.
