Hide the last bottom margin in a container

When you create e.g. a sidebar box that contains headlines and paragraphs, the final paragraph's margin in that box will create an undesired 'bottom padding' inside that box.

Here is a Sass mixin that you can apply to such boxes. It makes the last child's bottom margin disappear:

=hide_last_margin >*:last-child margin-bottom: 0

Use it like this:

.sidebar_box p, table, ul margin-bottom: 1em +hide_last_margin

Internet Explorer (fix)

Does not work in versions of <IE8

Your best bet is to explicitly add a last-child (or similar) class to that item, and apply your style to the .last_child class.

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
