Footer covers my content when using w3.css

I am trying out w3.css for styling, along with knockout, and when I use a footer, it covers the content near the bottom of the page.

I have a button at the bottom of my content. When the page resizes or is small enough, the footer covers the button.

See codepen, or the code below



function setting(color) {
this.color = ko.observable(color);
this.colorClassName = ko.computed(function() {
return "w3-hover-" + this.color();
}, this);
}

function myInput() {
this.data = ko.observable("");
this.nameValid = ko.computed(function() {
return !(this.data() == null || this.data().length == 0);
}, this);
this.error = ko.computed(function() {
//if (this.data() == null || this.data().length == 0)
if (this.nameValid() == false) {
return "Enter name";
} else {
return "";
}
}, this);

this.display = ko.computed(function() {
if (this.nameValid() == false) {
return "block";
} else {
return "none";
}
}, this);

this.ageData = ko.observable();
this.ageValid = ko.computed(function() {
var age = this.ageData() + "";

var patt = new RegExp(/^[0-9]+$/g); /// ^-from start, $-to end, [0-9] - 0 to 9 numbers only
var res = patt.test(age);
if (isNaN(age) == true || res == false) {
return false;
} else {
return true;
}
}, this);
this.ageError = ko.computed(function() {
if (this.ageValid() == false) {
return "Enter a valid age";
} else {
return "";
}

}, this);
this.ageDisplay = ko.computed(function() {
if (this.ageValid() == true) {
return "none";
} else {
return "block";
}
}, this);

this.phone = ko.observable('http://digitalbush.com/projects/masked-input-plugin/');

this.allValid = ko.computed(function() {
return this.ageValid() && this.nameValid();
}, this);
}

function myModel() {
this.name = "Ice-Cream";
this.items = [{
name: "Chocolate",
price: 10
}, {
name: "Vanilla",
price: 12
}];
this.style = new setting('pale-green');
this.input = new myInput();

this.changeColor = function() {
if (this.style.color().indexOf('blue') == -1) {
this.style.color('pale-blue');
} else {
this.style.color('pale-green');
}
};
}
ko.applyBindings(new myModel());

<footer class="w3-light-grey w3-bottom">
<div class="w3-container">
<p>This is my footer</p>
</div>
</footer>




Answer

My solution was to add another div element with the same content as my footer, but make it invisible. This way it will fill the space behind the real footer.

In the code i above i will add the following

<div class="w3-container" style="opacity:0">
  <p>This is my footer</p>
</div>

The updated codepen shows the solution.
