    Hello, you can increase footer in your style.css ...

    and in functions.php you need to create new widger area and then add code where to put that new widget.

  3. Hi andrilio - you can add new widgetized areas to your footer by adding some code to both your functions.php and footer.php files, as zzuum suggested. Once you do that and add at least one widget, the footer should stretch vertically to accommodate it.

    Here are some guides on how to add new widgetized areas to a theme:

    Be sure to make your changes in a child theme so your changes won't be overwritten the next time you update the theme.

    Here are some guides in case you haven't made one before:
