This plugin creates footer widget areas according to user settings and helps design a fascinating footer section for the site.

How does this plugin work?

This is a widget dependent plugin. It includes few helper widgets for your start up and is supportive of any widgets downloaded.

This plugin is not working?
  • Every theme must have <?php wp_footer(); ?> somewhere in the footer.php file.

  • Most themes have it, so if you try this and it doesn�t show, check the theme�s footer file first.

  • For some themes, the footer hook is left blank, or uses a theme-specific hook such as twentytfourteen_credits, twentyfifteen_credits, genesis_footer, etc.

Well, I couldn’t be happier. It was easy to configure (a testament to the dev for making a great UI) and it just simply adds an extra footer to your site. It’s what I wanted, it’s exactly what I got. Thank you very much, it is indeed… Excellent!

My site theme came with no option to change their pre-formatted footer options, so I had to look for something I could use myself. I’m not an expert wordpress coder, or developer, so it needed to be simple to use and configure. This plugin works perfectly, once you work out how to add it (which is actually pretty simple if you follow the instructions) It creates your chosen number of footer columns with access to Widgets to add items to each. It’s really helped me to create the footer I needed. Also, when my site theme updated, it affected the plugin, which I needed support to fix. they were quick to respond (once I’d emailed them) and answered in the forum with the solution. Well done, this is a great plugin and I’d definitely recommend it.
