I have been tasked with developing my organizations intranet with Sharepoint 2013. I'd like to be able to brand it so it matches the look of our organization but I keep hitting road blocks so I was hoping to get some answers to some questions I am having trouble with.
So far I have created a html/css page on dreamweaver and I have imported that into sharepoint. Here is a picture of what that looks like below. I should add that I am fairly new to sharepoint. But I have read a lot about how to design master pages, I just need some guidance. Also I am happy to talk offline and provide compensation for anyone who would be willing to give me some advice.
Question #1, What happened to my footer? It seems to have disappeared from my design. Here is what the footer is supposed to look like.
What am I missing? I tried putting a container on the around the html code for the whole page at 1414px wide (the size of the footer and the size of the header) but it still won't show. Sometimes i even see the footer flicker at the bottom of the page for a millisecond, but then it goes away.
