Great Plugin- Does what it says it does
By , for WP 3.6

As a user of the Genesis Framework, this plugin was a great quick way to get a widgetized footer versus having to mess with code. Thanks!

Does what it says, and does it well

Great plugin, works as intended.

Awesome plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I use this plugin on every Genesis site I build and it has always performed flawlessly. Easy to use, easy to customize.

Seamless and straightforward
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin does exactly what it claims to do, which is add solid widgetized footer functionality to the Genesis framework. It allows users to change areas that otherwise require coding inside the child theme itself.

Now, some people have left 1 star reviews because Genesis is not free. The documentation states this clearly, but others have decided to ignore that and bash the author of the plugin instead.

There are many plugins in the repository that serve as add-ons to paid products. Some for other commercial themes (Thesis, Headway), Gravity Forms, and others for niche products that have a SaaS component that is not free. This is perfectly OK and shows that the WP ecosystem can work with commercial products.

Great plug-in for Genesis users

This plug-in is an excellent option for a user who prefers not to mess with PHP code directly. Works exactly as described. Easy to use! Thanks, David!

Another great plugin for users
By , for WP 3.5.1

There are two plugins I regularly use for this exact function, and this is one of them. Works like a charm and is easy for the usesr to understand.

The fact that these kinds of plugins that work with specific frameworks are out there, they can be invaluable for those who do not want to work with code, or even understand it.

Works exactly as advertised

Thanks for putting this together.

Truelly fake, cheat

I agree with the previous negative review.
THIS IS A CHEAT, DISHONEST PLUGIN.
The plugin is advertised to be free.
It only says, framework is required.
It did not say, that framework is NOT a WP plugin to be downloaded free from WP.irg, and that it is not free.
You need to PURCHASE their framework on their website in order to get it working.
A free plugin is not free FOR THE PAYING CUSTOMERS. It is free for EVERYBODY.
If they wrote the honest truth and placed the plugin among purchasable plugins, I'd consider buying it, thanks to the numerous good reviews about it.
But now I am NOT going to use any of their famous "free" stuff.
Total waste of time and nerves.

Really easy to use for Genesis Child Themes!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Anyone who can use widgets can now customize very easily the footer in Genesis Child Themes. I use this for lots of my projects!

Highly recommended for Genesis users!

Fake Plugin

Sorry, you cannot activate the Genesis Widgetized Footer plugin unless you have installed the Genesis Framework.

To get Genesis Framework we need to register in your website.
