The footer box should sneak off the bottom of the screen when it's not needed. Also, it should be formatted as so:
The "Home" option should only be used in a subsite. The "Homepage" option should be used on every site that has a homepage, and should return to the main site's homepage, rather than any subsite. It is OK to put the drawout box in the bottom corner of the footer, with no padding.
Here's an example of it implemented:
<bst-footer bst-subsite="Site or Subsite Title" bst-subsite-home-url="#sshome" bst-help-url="#foothelp" bst-license-url="#footlic" bst-static>A summary or slogan of the site or subsite.</bst-footer>
bst-subsite: This attribute is required. It is the text that displays as bolded at the top of the footer.
bst-subsite-home-url This attribute is optional. If it is used, the "Home" link will appear.
bst-help-url This attribute is optional. If it is used, it will change the destination of the "Help" link from its default, Blake Site Help Home.
bst-license-url This attribute is optional. When it's used, it changes the "License" link to go somewhere else. If it is not used, License will not be linked.
bst-static This attribute is optional. When it's used, it stays in place on the page. Without it, it will automatically slide off the bottom of the page when it's not being used.
bst-is-greenbg This attribute is optional. It changes the background of the footer to blue, just in case the page background color is green.
bst-drawerhandle This attribute is optional and WIP. It adds the drawout button to the bottom corner.
