Footer On Homepage


This (relatively simple) plugin gives site owners an opportunity to stuff some SEO-friendly text into the homepage (and only the homepage) of their site. It will initially display only as a link, but when the visitor clicks the link, the full specified text displays right there in the footer for the user to see.

It is also a great example of how to use wp_editor() [new in 3.3] and still be backwards-compatible.

The admin side, as of v1.0.1, has a text box for you to specify your own CSS stylings of the footer div. So go ahead and make it look however you like!


  1. Install via the WordPress Plugins Repository
  2. Add your copy via Appearance > Homepage Footer
  3. (optional) Add styling to the #footer_on_homepage and #footer_on_hoomepage_wrap elements in the admin page.
