Tagged: footer widgets
In the Enterprise theme there is a widget area with currently 3 sections side-by-side, called “footer 1″, “footer 2″ and “footer 3″.
I am assuming that though this area is called “footer”, it actually officially a “sidebar” because it has widgets.
I want to add an additional 4th widget area on it….. to go under the 3 side-by-side areas, to hold a long row of linked icons for client’s business affiliates.
I am a bit confused as to how to add it. I understand (I think) how to add an additional widget section to the “middle” area’s widgets. I can see them all listed in the “functions.php” file under “Register widget areas” and know that I would just need to register another widget, then put in the appropriate action and function lines, then address the css.
However, the the 3 widget areas for the footer are not listed under “Register widget areas”. Instead, there are lines above that say:
/** Add support for 3-column footer widgets */
add_theme_support( ‘genesis-footer-widgets’, 3 );
How do I go about adding that additional 4th section to the footer widgets?
You’re on the right track.
Change this to 4 widgets: add_theme_support( ‘genesis-footer-widgets’, 4 );
That’ll add a 4th widget area where you can add your info.
As for CSS, add something like this:
You may also want to add some margin to the top of that element if it’s cramping up against your other footer widgets. Try that out and post a link if you need more help.
