    Adding Menus to Footer 4 column widget areas

    Enfold with child theme

    I’m working with the 4 column footer that may have been setup with “import dummy data”.

    I created a new menu in WP Menus and named it Footer 1, added “Links” and added “Footer Menu” from the Menu Settings: Theme locations.

    In WP Widgets I added the Custom Menu widget into the Footer – column1 area, gave it a title and for Select Menu chose Footer 1. This is working fine.

    Now that I’m trying to add links to the Footer – column2 area I’m running into problems. I created a new menu in WP Menus and named it Footer 2, added “Links” and added “Footer Menu” from the Menu Settings: Theme locations, but when I view the page, it just displays the Footer 1 menu links again.

    Any ideas?

    Hi!

    I’m seeing different menus on your footer (col 1 and col 2):

    Best regards,

    As you can see they are the same menu in both footer columns that I set in the WordPress Admin > Menus. I would like to have 4 different menus showing in the footer that are set in WP Admin > Menus from the Widget area using “Custom menu” widget.

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks for your help. I finally understand the footer. Here’s my notes in case in can help anyone else.

    [] There’s 2 areas in the footer

    1) Footer widgets (top footer area)
    Can choose 1 to 4 columns

    2) Socket (bottom footer area)
    Copyright (left) and Footer Menu (right)

    [] To add Menus to Footer Widgets (4 columns)

    1) Create Footer settings
    Theme Options > Footer tab
    Default Footer Widgets & Socket Settings:
    Display the footer widgets & socket
    Footer Columns:
    4
    Copyright:
    © Copyright – Your Company[nolink]

    2) Create 4 menu names in WP Admin: Appearance > Menus
    Example:
    Footer 1, then add links
    Footer 2, then add links
    Footer 3, then add links
    Footer 4, then add links

    3) Add Footer menus to Widgets in WP Admin: Appearance > Widgets
    Example:
    Drag “Custom Menu” widget into > Footer – column1 area
    Add into to Custom Menu
    Title: Your title
    Menu: Footer 1

    Drag “Custom Menu” widget into > Footer – column2 area
    Add into to Custom Menu
    Title: Your title
    Menu: Footer 2

    Drag “Custom Menu” widget into > Footer – column3 area
    Add into to Custom Menu
    Title: Your title
    Menu: Footer 3

    Drag “Custom Menu” widget into > Footer – column4 area
    Add into to Custom Menu
    Title: Your title
    Menu: Footer 4

    [] To add Menus to (Footer) Socket

    1) Create Footer settings
    Theme Options > Footer tab
    Default Footer Widgets & Socket Settings:
    Display the footer widgets & *socket

    2) Create a new menu names in WP Admin: Appearance > Menus
    Create a new menu
    Example:
    Footer Socket, then add links

    3) Menu Settings (beneath Menu Structure)
    [x] Footer Menu (check)
