[resolved] Problems with widgetized footer (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    This is my first time posting here because usually I stick to working within my limits! I managed to widgetize my footer by altering functions.php and footer.php... the widgets show up when I activate them but they override all existing css for the footer?

    i.e. my footer now has a grey background and is the same width as the main content... when I activate widgets, it becomes a transparent background, full screen width footer... which is useless against my patterned background..

    Any suggestions on how I can fix the width and use widgets in the footer?

    How exactly did you widgitize your footer? I followed this tutorial http://www.sueblimely.com/add-widget-ready-sidebars-to-wordpress-footers/ and had no problems.

    It sounds possibly like an error in your html or css code. Without seeing the page it is impossible to tell.

    Did you validate the webpage and css?
