    Please, how can I automatically have Footer in all pages/posts? I will like to add widgets, etc to automatically show on existing and and any future pages/posts added to the site?

    Apologies, I had mistakenly put the same questions under mise en place

    Good question there. You would need to add a widget area to the footer to do that. I would suggest creating a child theme to hold those changes. That way when updates to the Pneuma theme are released, you won’t lose these changes if you upgrade. You can read a bit about child themes at http://support.organizedthemes.com/child-themes/ if you haven’t used one before. In this case you would need to copy the footer.php file to the child theme for these modifications. The instructions will work either with a child theme or a parent theme.

    1. Go to the Appearance section of your WordPress dashboard and click on edit.
    2. From the list of files on your right, choose footer.php
    3. Locate this line:
      
      <div id="footer-content" class="clearfix">
      

      and right below that add this:

      (See support site for code to copy)

      and save your changes.

    4. Next edit the functions.php file and scroll down to the very bottom. Add a new line or two to the end and then paste this there:

      (see support post for code)

      and save your changes.

    That will add in a widget area for your footer. I would suggest using a page builder widget there so you can create rows and/or columns to organize your widgets. If you have any questions, let me know.

    Take care,
    Bill
