FAQ

  • Why is a footer important?

Reviews

Exactly what I was looking for!

Clean,simple, subtle and effective.
I like that the text floats over my background, which is something I wasn’t able to achieve with my current theme, which stayed as a solid colour.
This plugin has solved several issues for me in one fell swoop.

Good plugin

I’ve been using this plugin for years and it’s a real treat to use.
Best parts are the copyright years that adjust & structured data.

No much option

It works, but no option to change background color, text color, font size, font family, border, padding Etc. Without the option to change those this plugin is not fully effective.
