FAQ

Is the CSS responsive?

Yes, the widgets are fully responsive. For example, if you have 6 widgets selected. You will see 6 widgets in one row on desktop, 3 widgets divided into
two rows on tablets and on mobile devices you will have all of your widgets stacked on top of each other.

Reviews

Saved loads of time

A couple of child theme footers broke after the 2.2 Genesis update and I installed this as it wasn’t clear why they had broken. All the footer widgets were floated left and stacked on top of each other in one column but I didn’t have the time to investigate. Once I had chosen the required number of widgets using this plugin they spread out again across the footer and all was well.
