I put the footer within the div with the class s4-bodyContainer at the end of the div before closing the tag.

Maybe this helps:

<footer class="foot s4-notdlg">
     <div class="footerlegal">
         <asp:hyperlink runat="server" ID="lblLegalFooter" Text="<%$Resources:Intranet, Master_Footer_Legal %>" Mode="PassThrough" NavigateUrl="<%$Resources:Intranet, Master_Footer_Legal_Link %>"/>
     <SharePoint:AjaxDelta ID="DeltaSiteLogoFooter" BlockElement="true" runat="server">
         <SharePoint:SPLinkButton ID="lbLogoFooter" runat="server" CssClass="logoFooter s4-notdlg" NavigateUrl='<%$Resources:Intranet, Master_Logo_Url %>' ToolTip='<%$Resources:Intranet, Master_Logo_ToolTip %>' ImageUrl="/Style Library/img/modules/ccontainers/logoFooter.png" />

foot class is

.foot { width: 100%; float: left; position:relative; bottom:0; left:0; min-height: 55px; border-bottom: 2px solid #e1e4e4; background: url("../img/general/bgFooter2.png") repeat-x;}

footerLegal is

.footerlegal a{
width: 21em;
color: white;


Logofooter is

.logoFooter{float:right; margin: 15px 32px 0 0;}
.logoFooter{float:right; margin: 15px 15px 0px 0px;}
.logoFooter > img{height: 26px;}
  • adding the footer on this place will move it to the top of the page when doing a search. i attach a screen shot of what is happening.

  • You need to add some CSS to it in order to put it where you want it.
