    Its very straightforward if you are experienced with editing theme files.

    As it is a responsive theme, extra work on the css will be necessary to ensure the footer looks good at the different sizes.

    Thank you @cubecolour,

    I have had a go at this with a bit of success. I know it's not right because it's not working!

    I have put my function.php and a bit of my footer.php on pastebin and would be grateful if someone could look at it and give me some pointers. Mostly, I have just done some cutting and pasting from the parent theme (The Bootstrap) and Twenty Eleven.

    Any pointers would be great!

  4. Maybe something like this will work? (untested)

    Boom!

    Thanks Konstantin,

    I think that pushes me on quite a bit. I reckon I'm 85% of the way there.

    Regards

    Konstantin, could you explain how I can add content (widgetize) the footer?

    Also, where should I be putting google analytics code in your theme?

    In the pastebin link Konstantin put the code up to get the footer area widgetised.

    I used that code in a child theme. So there's a bit that goes in functions.php and a bit that goes in footer.php.

    I'm not a coder so just use the time-honored principles of Cut n' Paste and Trial and Error.

    Hope you get it going - it worked for me here: https://neighbourgood.co.uk
