LC Header Footer Widgets


Many themes work with Live Composer out of the box, but do not support using Live Composer for headers, footers or sidebars.

This plugin lets you use a Live Composer header or footer template in any WordPress widget area, be it in the header, footer or even on the sidebar of the theme.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Install the Live Composer Page Builder plugin
  2. Upload entire lc-header-footer-widgets folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to Appearance -> Headers/Footers (LC) and create new header or footer template and edit in Live Composer
  5. Select whether it is the default or not and save it
  6. Go to Appearance -> Widgets
  7. Drag the LC Header/Footer Widget to a widgetized area, a header or footer or even a sidebar!
  8. Select either the default header or footer or the specific one created in step 5.

Sorry, but I have test it with many different themes and I can’t build a header or footer in Live Composer. I get a whole page within the used theme and no container where I can build a header or footer. I thought it should be promising, but not at this time. I hope for some useful support so I can change my opinion here and give more stars... 🙂
