Material Design Lite - Footers


Advertisements


An MDL footer component comes in two primary forms: mega-footer and mini-footer. mega-footer contains more complex content than mini-footer. A mega-footer can represent multiple sections of content which are separated by horizontal rules, whereas a mini-footer presents a single section of content. The footers typically contain both informational and clickable content, such as links.

MDL provides various CSS classes to apply various predefined visual and behavioral enhancements to the mega-footer and mini-footer. The following table lists down the available classes and their effects.
