Looking for Custom Footer Plugin

    Hi everyone,

    I have just adopted a client’s site that *insists* on staying in their current Genesis child theme (I prefer Premium Press!!). The child theme has a 3 section footer consisting of 3 – 33% sized boxes. It’s not working for what we need. I have found plugins such as
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-footer-builder/installation/

    But it does not let me build a footer that has for example 1 row that is 1 column 100% wide and a 2nd row that is 4 boxes of 25% each.

    Yes yes I know it can be done by coders in php but I am not a coder. I need a plugin. Us non-coders are keeping you PHP coders with plenty of job security!

    Does anyone know of such a plugin? I have looked and have not yet found a perfect solution. If any of you know of such a solution I would be grateful.

    Joel

    yes thought of HTML tables but not sure how to insert it into the theme’s footer (I’m not a coder). Even with shortcode which I fully understand, I do not know how to replace the current footer with the shortcode.

    Add a text footer widget and add the following code (for PPtheme)

    <div class="col-md-12">This is 100% width</div>
    <div class="col-md-4">This is 25% width - 1st part</div>
    <div class="col-md-4">This is 25% width - 2nd part</div>
    <div class="col-md-4">This is 25% width - 3rd part</div>
    <div class="col-md-4">This is 25% width - 4th part</div>

    Hemanta,

    That did not provide the control I need.

    This is actually exactly what I am looking for:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/widgets-on-pages/
    …. but it appears to not have been updated in a while.
    If anyone knows of a “widgets on pages” plugin that is reliable please reply thanks.

    You were asking about the widget on the footer, right ? That code was for the footer widget.

    Which widget you want to add to the page ?

    I should have titled this thread “custom widget on page plugin”. I have hundreds of pages on the client’s site and would like to be able to add a few widgets (such as testimonials) to the bottom of the page before the footer. I have a testimonials widget but dont want to edit 300 pages. If I could add the widget to pages that = X category that would work. I just have not found the right plugin yet.

    Strange that this very simple solution doesn’t appear to exist. Surely someone else has needed to insert X widget on Y pages without doing it manually.

    Hello ,

    I am not sure this will work or not , But have you tried using Advertising Setup , Using that you can add you custom code on the pages you like ?
