    <div class="col-xs-7 col-sm-3 col-md-2 sidebar sidebar-left sidebar-animate sidebar-show-lg">
      <ul class="nav navbar-stacked">

    <div class="main">
      <div class="page-header">

      <p class="lead">Pin a fixed-height footer to the bottom of the viewport in desktop browsers with this custom HTML and CSS. A fixed navbar has been added within <code>#wrap</code> with <code>padding-top: 60px;</code> on the <code>.container</code>.</p>
      <p>Back to <a href="../sticky-footer">the default sticky footer</a> minus the navbar.</p>

.sidebar {
  padding: 20px;
  background-color: #333;
