This tutorial assumes you already have a widgetized area in your sidebar. When I mention the sidebar.php file, I’m basically recoding that widgetized area to have a unique name (in this case, “Sidebar”) to differentiate it from the new widgetized footer area we’re about to create.

There’s more info on coding multiple widget areas in my WordPress theme widgetizing tutorial.

One question:

Why did you need to add code into the sidebar.php file when the purpose of the tutorial is adding three widgetized areas into the footer?

I want to use this tutorial but the 2012 foot is freakishly long or “High” I want to ad 5 text widgets, and it has fluid template, i use the Full Page Template so i would like it centered. You can throw in a bag of chips with that if you like 😛

“The first step is to add the HTML markup.” and “We’ll place this HTML code above the current “copyright” line.”

OK…. add it to WHAT? Where do I put the html markup? What do I add it to? How do I find the file that has the “copyright” line?

If you could reply to this comment or send me an e-mail it would be great.
Once again, great tutorial it worked perfectly for my theme’s blog and now I want just to paint it a little, if you know I mean.
Kind regards and I am waiting for a reply from your part! 🙂

Excellent tutorial on a process that could have been much more difficult…10 mins and I’m up and running with brand new footer widgets. Thanks!
