  • Well, do you already have a search area built into your theme? It could be as simple as copying the code from one area to another…. or it could be more involved. You could also set up your footer to have a ‘widget’ area, and drop a search widget there….

    that’s the tutorial I used to add several widget areas to my footer….but you see, you have options

    Thank you so much for your reply,

    Yes indeed I do have a search area already.

    In fact I need to have two different footers. I’ve done that, a new footer with the pasted codes for the search area, footer called “footer2”. I created a new page template, who calls the header and the footer.

    The footer, I suppose, is called by

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    But I do not know how to call the “footer2”. Must be dead easy, right? Well, it must be… or perhaps not.

    the second footer would be called like:
    <?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . "/footer2.php"); ?>

    WOW

    It works.

    kind of magic…

    THANK YOU!

    For sure! it’d be cool if you marked thethread ‘resolved’

    I do that right now…
