FAQ

  • Why is a footer important? By creating an appropriate footer you can enhance the credibility of your site by informing visitors on how to contact you, asserting copyright over the site content, setting out the legal terms and conditions for using the site, and establishing the trade associations or other bodies that recognize the legitimacy of your business.

Reviews

Very configurable

Works for my simple needs. Did not explore all options but allowed me to make a professional looking footer.

Very Good Plugin

Thanks for creating such a wonderful plugin, only one suggestion, can you give a Box view, kind of a Borders to make it look more attractive.

Simple and easy

This was a pretty easy install and got me what I wanted. Admin panel guide was excellent, walked me through with nice links and everything. Very considerate to the befuddled amateur page spinner.

I was even able to knock out “Proudly powered by WordPress” in the footer!

easy to use

simple and just provides exactly what I’m looking for.
Thanks!
