Support » Plugin: Footer Putter » Where to set your defined CSS classes?

  • Resolved freshwater


    your text in the Widget > “Footer Copyright Widget”
    Custom Classes (Optional)

    Add any custom CSS classes you want apply to the footer section content to change the font color and size.

    For your convenience we have defined 3 classes dark, light and white but feel free to define and use your own custom CSS classes.
    everyone’s got to start somewhere. i’ve been searching for days and can’t find how/where to set dark, light or white?

    i’ve got your footer putter displaying properly.

    ps. i’m using theme Twenty Twelve NONE of the footer hooks worked for me except “wp_footer”.

    thanks for any help!

    You just type “dark”, “light” or “white” into the text widget settings.

    The 3 classes are defined in ../wp-content/plugins/footer-putter/styles/footer-credits.css

    Let’s say you had a class “footer-link” as part of your WordPress then you would simply type the class name “footer-link” in the widget settings.

    You can of course define additional classes, either in your theme’s style.css, or in Appearance > Edit CSS if you enable this facility in the Jetpack plugin.

    am i supposed to install a plugin to manipulate/set “Widget Settings”? i don’t see a way to set “Widget Settings” in FP – Intro, Footer Credits or Trademarks. or in Appearance > Widgets. am i supposed to be using Appearance > Editor > Footer (footer.php)? it’s kinda scary messing around with code. Binging i only see people talking about using plug ins to set class/css/font/color…

    * The template for displaying the footer.
    * Contains footer content and the closing of the
    * #main and #page div elements.
    * @package WordPress
    * @subpackage Twenty_Twelve
    * @since Twenty Twelve 1.0
    </div><!– #main .wrapper –>
    <footer id=”colophon” role=”contentinfo”>
    <div class=”site-info”>
    <?php do_action( ‘twentytwelve_credits’ ); ?>
    ” title=”<?php esc_attr_e( ‘Semantic Personal Publishing Platform’, ‘twentytwelve’ ); ?>”><?php printf( __( ‘Proudly powered by %s’, ‘twentytwelve’ ), ‘WordPress’ ); ?><!–SOFTACULOUS–>

    Please go to Appearance > widgets

    In the Footer Widget area, open up the Footer Copyright Widget and then type in the class name

    THANK YOU for answering! i would have never thought to type anything in “Footer Credits”. now i see i can type “Dark Light White” in there. that’s cool and solves my background text contrast problem! i will investigate about making my own CSS in the future. as soon as our new WP sites start making some money, i’m going to force the owner to cough up money for this and all the great WP plug ins we use!

    How do I make the background of the footer sidebar (cridibility footer) black? I tried many different codes in my style.css (child theme of the newswire theme) after searching on the net but it doesn’t work the way I want it to. Any suggestion?
