How To Create A Footer in Avada

03/08/2020

The Footer is an important part of a website page. It’s typically on every page of the site, and it’s a good place to add commonly needed information, such as opening hours, common links, etc.

It will greatly depend on your site as to what’s the best content for your footer, but in this document, we will show you the two ways of creating a footer in Avada – using the Avada Footer Options to configure the footer area, and then adding widgets to populate it, or Building a Custom Footer with Avada Layouts.

Building A Footer Using The Avada Footer Options

This is the original way to build a footer, before the advent of Avada Layouts. If you want a simple footer, with 1 to 6 columns, populated by widgets, then this is an easy method to use.

It’s a two-step process. Firstly, you head to the Footer section of the Avada Options (Options > Footer) and begin by configuring the footer area. See the Footer Options doc for specifics on all options available for the footer, but basically, you start by deciding how many columns you want in your footer, and then you configure the footer area with the Footer Content, Footer Background Image, and Footer Styling tabs.

The second part of the process is to populate the footer. This is achieved through the use of Widgets. See the Widgets section of the Docs for more info on this, but basically, widgets are small blocks that can contain a variety of content, and you can create your footer by populating widgets, and then adding them into the predefined Footer Widget Areas, found under Appearance > Widgets, from the WordPress dashboard.

See below for an example of a basic footer built using the theme options for the Taxi Demo. You can also see a walkthrough of the process of configuring the footer via the theme options in the following video.

Building A Custom Footer With Avada Layouts

Avada Layouts is nothing short of a game-changer. As of Avada 6.2, you can now create custom layouts for your website, including Custom Footers. The main advantage of this is that you can use the full power of the Fusion Builder to create your footer, and no longer be limited by any constraints of the Avada options. Also, with the Theme Builder, you can even have multiple footers on your site. You might have a default footer, built with the original method, but then have a Custom Footer for a particular Custom post Type, Category, or even single page. Virtually anything is possible.

See the video below for a rundown of how to Build a Custom Footer using the new Avada Layouts.
