I am trying to figure out the best way to add a couple images and content to the footer. I have an image on the left side, content in them middle, and then a Facebook and Twitter image on the right side. I used the three footer columns to do this but I need the middle column to be wider than the left and right ones. Can anyone help me with how to do this? I am using a child theme also.
Looks like you tried some other CSS — but with non-existent id’s (i.e. #left-footer)? Any extraneous code should be removed from your stylesheet so it’s not cluttering things up or slowing down your page loads. You might want to review basic CSS and definitely use Firebug to work with things like this.
