WordPress ClassiPress Theme Customize Footer Area tutorial shows you how to customize and edit the footer area in your site and more.

Last Updated: May 3, 2019

Latest Update: I made some changes to the documentation.

In this tutorial you will learn how to manage the footer area of your site including the copyright notice. ClassiPress has four different widget areas you can play with. Each widget area allows you to add many different widgets. It is up to you to choose how many widgets you want to add in each footer area block.

Note: When editing themes it is always best to use a child theme for all your customization.

  1. Man it’s 2018 why are you still telling people to hack core files … it’s not futureproof in the slightest – please recommend to use a child theme instead

    • Hi, yes you are correct. Thank you for reminding me. I was eventually going to include more information which also included using a child theme. Unfortunately I lost track and never got around it. I am always busy. I will be adding some documentation about using a child theme in a future update.

      Thank you for your comment.

  2. is there any way to adjust height of footer copyright bar??
