HTML Question

HTML Footer is overlaping inside the center content

I am designing a homepage template. When I finished with my center content I started making the footer. I quickly realized my footer is not at the bottom of the page but instead inside the center content and cannot figure out why.

HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="file://C:/Workspace/MyWeblogicWorkspace/Purify/WebContent/CSS/index.css">
<link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=PT+Sans:400,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
</head>
<body>
<div id="header">
<div id="navigationBar">
<ul id="navigationBarList">
<li><a id="test" href="http://www.google.com">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.google.com">About</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.google.com">Services</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.google.com">Contact</a></li>
</ul>
</div><!-- end of navigationBar -->
</div><!-- end of header -->
<div id="center">
<p id="title">*******************</p>
<p id="slogan">*******************</p>

<div id="centerContent">
<div id="contentOneBox">
<p id="contentOneTitle">*******************</p>
<p id="contentOneText">*******************!</p>
</div><!-- end of contentOneBox -->
<div id="contentTwoBox">
<p id="contentTwoTitle">*******************</p>
<p id="contentTwoText">**************************************.</p>
</div><!-- end of contentTwoBox -->
<div id="contentThreeBox">
<p id="contentThreeTitle">*******************</p>
<p id="contentThreeText">**************************************.</p>
</div><!-- end of contentThreeBox -->
<div id="contentFourBox">
<p id="contentFourTitle">*******************</p>
<p id="contentFourText">**************************************.</p>
</div><!-- end of contentFourBox -->
</div><!-- end of centerContent -->
</div><!-- end of center -->
<div id="footer">
<p id="contact">*******************</p>
<p id="copyright">*******************</p>
</div><!-- end of footer -->
</body>
</html>

Answer

Try to add clear: both; to footer CSS:

#footer {
  background-color: #f2f2f2;
  display: block;
  position: relative;
  margin: 0;
  width: 100%;
  min-width: 1024px;
  font-size: 14px;
  -webkit-user-select: none;
  border: 1px gray dotted;
  background-color: rgba(120,120,120,.5);
  clear: both; /* <-- check this out! */
}
