I have created a child theme, I have copied the functions.php file into my child along with footer.php and styles.css. I have tweaked my functions so I now have 3 extra widget areas in the footer section. I would really like to have the 3 footer widgets at the bottom in white (font and lines etc.) But I want to have a background strip across behind the widgets same color as the background-color in the menu bar. #434343.
I don’t know what to do. If I put background colors on the widgets it will be different sizes. I have tried add color to the #footer but that did nothing. Any suggestions would be great. Web address is
