Footers in Avada can be constructed in two ways – the recommended method of using Avada Layouts to create a completely custom footer with no limitations, or the traditional method, configuring the footer via the Global Options and adding widgets to populate it. For more details, please see How To Create A Footer In Avada. If you do wish to build a footer using the traditional method, it will be useful for you to familiarize yourself with the Global Footer options, as shown in this document.
There are various options available for customizing the Footer in the Avada Global Options, accessed from the WordPress Dashboard at Avada > Options > Footer. To access these theme options from Avada Live, you can simply mouse over the footer, and choose Edit Footer. This will open the Sidebar to the Footer Options section of the Avada Options.
There are three sub-panels in the Footer tab: Footer Content, Footer Background Image, and Footer Styling, as well as a Footer Social Icon Styling sub-panel under Social Media. Please continue reading below to know more about the options in each section.
