moderated Re: Footer placement


On Y! the footer came after the links, and the links on individual emails were sorted horizontally not vertically. So you could get to them easily and quickly - as they help you participate in your group.

On mobile - to see the links after the footer on individual emails, involves a substantial amount of scrolling each time to get to your action links.

The footer is repetitive and static, yet it has to be there. The links are necessary in order to take actions that help people participate in the group. On mobile they get buried by a footer even when the footer is only a few sentences long. Especially on the iphones with smaller screens.

For those reasons, I personally prefer links first and footer last.
