  • To get your links to sit on one line find this code in your child CSS:

    .sidebar .site-footer .widget {
    	width: 228px;

    and change the width value to a larger number like 700px.

    Victory! Thanks, DivByZRo.

    Any ideas on where to plugin text-align: center so I can center the darn footer? Plus there’s the whacky amount of white space above and below it.

    Re: whacky amount of white space 🙂

    In the footer file the height is set here:
    <div class="widget-area masonry" style="position: relative; height: 151px;">

    In the style.css file there is also padding added here :

    .site-footer .sidebar-container {
        background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
        padding: 20px 0px;

    and here:

    .hentry {
        padding: 40px 0px;

    For centering the footer text look in this area of the footer file:

    <aside id="text-3" class="widget widget_text masonry-brick" style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px;">
        <div class="textwidget">
            <p style="text-align: center;">

    It looks like the <p> is centering on the <aside> box not on the whole page.

    You could try using absolute postioning instead of text-align: center in the <p>, not sure.

    Thanks, DivByZRo! Here’s the updated code in my CSS that fixed it and centered the footer:

    `/** Upper footer */
    .site-footer .sidebar-container {
    background-color: #fff;
    padding: 0;

    .site-footer .widget-area {
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 1040px;
    width: 100%;

    .sidebar .site-footer .widget-area {
    max-width: 724px;
    position: relative;
    left: -158px;

    .site-footer .widget {
    background: transparent;
    color: #002566;
    float: left;
    margin-right: 20px;
    width: 245px;

    .sidebar .site-footer .widget {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    width: 100%;

    Glad to see you got it sorted!
