Usage #

This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.

Do #

  • Use the footer component to show actions for a stepped workflow.
  • Use the footer component to provide additional information or actions that are positioned below the main content.
  • The footer component can also be used within Nord to provide a layer of actions or information at the bottom of a component. It’s currently used internally in the modal and drawer components.
  • When using the footer component within the layout component, you can make the footer sticky by using the provided stickyFooter property of the layout component. View an example.

Don’t #

  • Don’t overcrowd the footer with too many actions or information.
  • Don’t nest the footer deeply and restrict its available space.
  • Don’t add large amounts of content or long paragraphs. Aim for actions that are short and concise.

Content guidelines #
