At present I have 3 block widgets in my footer, but i want to add another that has another full width block above it, I know i can do this with the page builder, but i want this on every page, is this possible?
So, I have 1 full width block and then the 3 widget blocks below it?
The theme’s widget area won’t do this without Custom CSS. Page Builder could do it, but you’d need to build the layout in a single layout builder widget. The footer widget area does display on every page.
The challenge with a Custom CSS solution is that it would be very specific to a single layout, you wouldn’t be able to change the layout (e.g: 1 x 100%, 3 x 30%) etc. without changing the CSS.
If you inserted a single Layout Builder widget into the footer, you could build that same layout within the single Layout Builder widget and be able to change it as required. A Layout Builder widget is a mini-instance of Page Builder. If you’d like to try this out go to Appearance > Widgets and insert a Layout Builder widget into the footer. It would require removing your existing widgets though and then adding them back within the Layout Builder.
