    This will help you create footer widgets for Twentytwelve

    It doesn't do what you asked for, it creates new set of widget area inside the footer.

    I suppose doing this is better than enabling those 2 front footer widgets that come with the theme's front page template, because creating new is better than overriding CSS that already set specifically for front page.

    Download a new copy of twentytwelve and replace the functions.php file with a new copy - via FTP or other file manager your host uses.

    You should NEVER be modifying default theme files - but rather using a Child Theme instead - see:

    A bit of clarification - download the new copy of the theme to your local computer - and then you'll upload the new functions file using FTP or other file manager.

    Login to your webhost via SFTP, or FTP, or cPanel.

    Navigate to this folder


    Look for this file inside that folder


    Replace that file with this file

    Or go to this page

    and dl the whole theme, unzipped it, get that functions.php and upload to replace that one in the server.

    When you got your site back, now make changes only to child theme.
