Footer Additional Content

You can add additional content to the bottom of each page on your website. It will be displayed above any other footer sections like widgets, newsletter or copyright area. Why you may need this feature? Because this allows you to add ANY content to the footer not just widgets like in other themes. You can build content on specific page with columns and shortcodes and then simply output it in footer.

You can add additional content in the textarea or choose a specific page with you content. Linking page requires if you’ve build your content with WPBakery Page Builder and set some custom design options. Because in WPBakery Page Builder design options works only on the page where the content was created.

Footer Newsletter

You can enable newsletter section in the footer. You will need to install and activate Mailchimp for WordPress plugin if you have skipped theme Setup Wizard. Also you need to connect this plugin with mailchimp by adding your api key and create a form. After that choose that form in Footer newsletter settings of our theme.

Newsletter section will be displayed above the footer widget area. You can adjust appearance of this section in Customizer – Footer – Footer Newsletter.

Footer Widgets

You can enable Widget area in footer and choose from predefined layouts with different amount of columns. The more columns in layout the more widget areas will be create in Appearance – Widgets.

On example below you can see only one footer widget area ( “Footer area 1”  ) since one column footer layout has been chosen in theme options. Now you need to add widgets to your widget area. Simply drag desired widgets from the left side where it says “Available Widgets” to the widget area (it is “Footer area 1” on image).

You can choose between four different copyright area layouts, enable social icons and add any additional content to copyright area.

Layout option change position of menu, additional content and social icons. Menu for footer can be assigned in Appearance – Menus. Create your footer menu and select Display location as Footer Menu.

Appearance Settings

Appearance of the footer area can be adjusted in Customizer. You can change colors and other style settings separately for footer & widgets, copyright and newsletter area.
