    Hello again,

    Whenever I add new widgets to the footer they align to the right? Any idea’s?

    Hi Dan

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Any chance of linking to a screenshot so I can check the problem out? Usually we’d inspect the page source in situations like this. I’ll try figure out what’s up from a screenshot if you can provide one.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The Layout Builder changes things a bit. If you don’t already have a Custom CSS plugin installed, go to Plugins > Add New and search for SiteOrigin CSS. Install and activate. Go to Appearance > Custom CSS and insert:

    /* Footer */
    
    .site-footer .footer-main .widget:last-of-type {
    	float: none;
    }

    That should fix the problem. Let me know how it goes.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I will try this tonight.

    I do have a Custom CSS activated, and have actually started to write my own HTML and CSS, as I found the page builder to be very limiting.

    I am at work right now, so don’t have access to my files, but can I just put a text editor into the footer and use HTML and CSS like I am for the rest of the site?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    For sure 🙂

    A normal footer setup would involve inserting widgets directly into the footer widget area. The theme will automatically assign each widget a column as added.

    Ultra is fully functional without Page Builder, you don’t need to use the plugin if you’re not enjoying it.

    Remember, all WordPress themes completely overwrite their own folders during theme updates so it’s isn’t update safe to directly edit theme files. If you need to edit a theme file a child theme must be used.

    Thanks for the feedback. I recommend:

    1. Don’t use the Layout Builder, add your widgets directly to the footer widget area.
    2. Use Appearance > Theme Settings > Footer > Copyright Text. This field is for the info below the widgets. You could easily insert divs into that field and then target those with CSS.

    The above would handle the bottom part of the footer you sent in the first example. Then, for the part of the footer above that we could child theme and add a new widget area. Let me work through a few other emails quickly, I’ll come back to this as soon as I can.

    If you’re not already using a child theme you can try this one, it’s a start, we’ll probably have to tweak once you’ve tested it out:

    https://purothemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ultra-child-above-footer-widget-area.zip

    * Download the ZIP
    * Install from Appearance > Themes > Add New: Upload Theme > Activate
    * Unfortunately, activating a child theme will reset menu location and Customizer settings, those will need to be redone if you want to use the child theme.

    A new widget area called Above Footer will be added to Appearance > Widgets. If you’re already using a child theme, let me know, we’ll integrate these changes into your new child theme.

    This probably won’t be perfect for you right away. I’ll help get it all lined up 🙂
