I copied and pasted the following code to the footer.php function according to instruction but it did not work. Footer did not show at the bottom of the page even though the widgets have content.
<?php if ( is_active_sidebar(“Footer #1?) || is_active_sidebar(“Footer #2?) || is_active_sidebar(“Footer #3?) ) : ?>
<?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘Footer #1′) ) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>
</div><!– end .footer-widgeted-1 –>
<?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘Footer #2′) ) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>
</div><!– end .footer-widgeted-2 –>
<?php if ( !function_exists(‘dynamic_sidebar’) || !dynamic_sidebar(‘Footer #3′) ) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>
</div><!– end .footer-widgeted-3 –>
</div><!– end .wrap –>
</div><!– end #footer-widgeted –>
<?php endif; ?>February 7, 2013 at 10:19 pm #18858

@h2ofilters, you said you edited the footer.php. The instructions say to edit the – widgeted-footer.php – file. Locate that file and use the code there.

One more thing, the widgets are there but they are not showing up. I am thinking if I need an accompanied stylesheet with the widgets.March 8, 2013 at 7:36 pm #25116

Hi, I had the same issue and found a solution. The Expose theme comes with the widgets disabled so you enable them by changing the widget numbers from 3, 4, 5 to 1, 2, 3. Then you need to register the widget by adding a filter (I found on Brian’s website). Links are below.
Note: When I added mine they were not formatted even after pasting the code from Brian’s site. I disabled mine until I can deal with it but just a heads up.
Changing numbers: (widgeted-footer.php first line) – you do not need to add anything just change the numbers
Registering the widget: (after the above the widgets should show however they did not until I added the code from Brian’s site to the functions.php file. http://www.briangardner.com/code/add-footer-widgets/ )March 8, 2013 at 11:17 pm #25153
For unknown reasons nothing works. I did exactly as you described before and I did again, yet the widgeted footer does not show. Even though the widgets are there (meaning they are properly registered) but the contents in the widgets is not showing.
Thanks for your help.June 28, 2013 at 2:47 pm #48272

I don’t understand why the directions on this page are not complete and correct:
I copied the replacement code (which should be written out for us not-too-techies because the way it is written it is unclear about the using the ” in it!) from another post which says it should be
<?php if ( is_active_sidebar(“Footer #1″) || is_active_sidebar(“Footer #2″) || is_active_sidebar(“Footer #3″) ) : ?>
Yet I get an error of Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘;’
and a line at the bottom that says ….wp-content/themes/expose/footer-widgeted.php on line 1
some posts speak of other things that are supposed to done to make this work??
if so, can someone tell us what they are and PLEASE add to the documentation under Getting Started for the theme…..?????
