    I’m using Vantage to with a child theme and just trying to figure this one out.

    Thanks in advance.


    DISREGARD ABOVE QUESTION. Thanks was having a moment and thought to check the widgets page..voila! Footer section to add widgets.

    Thanks. If you go to widgets, it should be a section there on the right. If not, you have to manually upgrade your site to Vantage 2.1.2 and it will be there in the widget section. There’s also nice header widget.

    Good luck!
