WordPress Footer Customization
In this tutorial on Visualmodo knowledge base, we will show how to do a WordPress footer customization using our WordPress Theme in an easy and simple way using text, images, and widgets.
To start go to your WordPress admin/dashboard area, Visualmodo > Theme Options, Footer, in this area you are able to create your footer layout and select if you want to use or not some parts of your footer. Footer Widget Area layout Columns, footer Breadcrumbs, Footer Text and Footer Copyright.
Still on the Theme Option panel you can customize more on your footer section, the background color and upload a background images if you want, On WP Dashboard > Visualmodo > theme options > Colors > Footer < (if you want to add an image as background make sure you choose some color also on Background color, can be any color or even an o, o, o color to not affect the image but you need to have it set and choose).
Go to Appearance, widgets, found the tabs – first footer, second footer, third footer or fourth footer tabs (if you select the columns layout to the center like in the attached image above just use the second footer tab to place a widget on). and chose the widgets you want to and simply drag it and drop on the tabs.
In the Theme demo site footer here http://theme.visualmodo.com/rare/ and on image below we used a ‘text’ widget with a simple HTML code to add the theme logo aligned to center –
<div style=”text-align: center; margin-bottom: 30px;”>
Another widget of ‘Visualmodo Social Icons’
And one last ‘Text’ widget with a content and a sample HTML code to center the text.
<div style=”text-align: center;color:rgb(119, 119, 119); margin-bottom:30px;”>
Rare WordPress Theme is the best way to create a website, one page, portfolio, shop, blog and much more site styles.
On the ‘After Footer’ tab we drop a widget called ‘Visualmodo – Menu to call a menu of pages on your footer section, the menu needs to be created on WP > Appearance > Menus > Create new menu > name it > add page items on it and simply save it (for organization we recommend you save it as ‘Footer’ so you can choose this menu using the ‘Visualmodo – Menu’ widget.
In the last part of copyright footer, we use a ‘visualmodo – contact information’ widget.
You always can upload custom plugins on your WordPress site to gives you more widgets, the Jetpack plugin is a good free example of a plugin that will add more nice widgets for your use on your footer.
