How to make footer in wordpress

There are two main ways to create a footer in WordPress: using widgets and using a theme customizer.

Using Widgets:

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Appearance > Widgets.
  3. You’ll see a list of available widgets on the left and designated footer areas on the right (these might be named “Footer 1,” “Footer 2,” etc., depending on your theme).
  4. Drag and drop the widgets you want to include in your footer (text, menus, social media icons, etc.) into the designated footer areas.
  5. You can edit each widget to customize its content.
  6. Once you’re happy with the layout, save your changes.

Using the Theme Customizer:

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard.
  2. There are a couple of ways to access the theme customizer:
    • Go to Appearance > Customize.
    • Click on the name of your website in the top left corner, then select Customize from the dropdown menu.
  3. Look for a section labeled “Footer” or something similar (it might be called “Widgets” or “Footer Builder” depending on your theme).
  4. You’ll be able to add and edit widgets directly in the customizer window.
  5. Make your desired changes and save them.

Additional Tips:

  • Some themes come with pre-designed footers that you can customize.
  • You can use a page builder plugin like Elementor to create a more complex and visually appealing footer.
  • Your footer should typically include copyright information, contact details, and navigation links.
