Hi,

 

I think your case the best solution would be to use a hook, see our documentation on how to use them.

Hi all,

 

I've painted myself into a corner.

 

I need a simple, open, non-columnized text area to add below the main footer area. I've used Full Width Sidebar and Contentbox in other areas of the site, so they're unavailable. If I clone the Contentbox, there are no site-wide options to make it useful as a footer for all pages.

 

The footer section options are limited. Morefoot required three columns. All I want is a simple, one-line sub-footer. Contentbox would've been perfect.

 

Thanks. Any ideas?

Hi Joe,

 

Morefoot Sidebars is three columns.  But if you add another section there from the Available list, it should work.  The Content Box is clonable there but I suspect you'll end up with the same cloning issue for the Content Box.

 

I think if you used the Universal or Full-Width Sidebar there, you could add multiple text widgets to those.

hi Rob,

 

Thanks - I've used both Contentbox and Full-Width Sidebar, and Universal Sidebar is not available for the footer.

 

Any other ideas? Thanks again.

Thanks Danny - you are correct - I needed to go outside the bounds of Sections or Plugins and add custom code. I used the PL footer hook. Thanks again!
