    There are 4 thin widget areas in the footer. How can i change this to just 2 wide widget areas?

    #51352

    Hey,

    in your footer.php delete two of these:

    <div class='box box_mini'>
    <h4>Archive</h4>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    They don’t look exactly the same but just make sure you delete from <div … > to </div> .. if this makes any sense.

    and in your style.css change the width of this element to make your 2 “big” widgets wider:

    .wrapper .box_mini

    I can see the css put i don’t see any code like this in footer.php. In fact there isn’t a single <div> in footer.php?

    Your footer.php file should look something like this

    <?php global $k_option; ?>
    </div><!-- end #top -->
    </div><!-- end #wrapper -->

    <div class='wrapper' id='footerwrap'>

    <div id='footer'>
    <div class='footer_widgets'>
    <?php
    ###########################################################################################################
    # if footer widgets are applied to "footer widget area" display them, else show predefined lists
    ###########################################################################################################

    if (function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && dynamic_sidebar('Footer Area')) : else :

    $exclude = '';

    if($k_option['blog']['blog_widget_exclude'] == 1)
    {
    $exclude = '&exclude='.$k_option['blog']['blog_cat_final'];
    }
    ?>
    <div class='box box_mini'>
    <h4>Pages</h4>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=' ); ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    <div class='box box_mini'>
    <h4>Blogroll</h4>
    <ul>
    <?php wp_list_bookmarks('title_li=&categorize=0'); ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    <?php
    endif;
    ?>
    </div>
    <div class="box box_custom_footer">

    <?php
    ############################################################################################
    # FOOTER RIGHT BLOCK DEFINITIONS WITH FALLBACK MESSAGES IF NO DATABASE ENTRIES ARE FOUND
    ############################################################################################
    if($k_option['footer']['button_link'] != '') $k_option['footer']['button_link'] = get_page_link($k_option['footer']['button_link']);
    ?>

    <!-- big button -->
    <a href='<?php echo $k_option['footer']['button_link'] ?>' class='custom_button ie6fix rounded'>
    <strong><?php echo $k_option['footer']['button1']; ?></strong>
    <span><?php echo $k_option['footer']['button2']; ?></span>
    </a>

    <div id='sitesearch_footer'>
    <h4>Search Site</h4>
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    </div>

    <!-- copyright text -->
    <p><?php echo $k_option['footer']['copyright']; ?></p>

    <!-- social bookmarks -->
    <ul class="social_bookmarks">
    <li class='rss'><a class='ie6fix' href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">RSS</a></li>
    <?php
    if($k_option['footer']['acc_fb'] != '')
    echo "<li class='facebook'><a class='ie6fix' href='http://facebook.com/".$k_option['footer']['acc_fb']."'>Facebook</a></li>";

    if($k_option['footer']['acc_tw'] != '')
    echo "<li class='twitter'><a class='ie6fix' href='http://www.twitter.com/".$k_option['footer']['acc_tw']."'>Twitter</a></li>";

    if($k_option['footer']['acc_fl'] != '')
    echo "<li class='flickr'><a class='ie6fix' href='http://www.flickr.com/people/".$k_option['footer']['acc_fl']."'>flickr</a></li>";

    ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    </div><!--end footer-->

    </div>
    <?php wp_footer();

    if($k_option['general']['analytics'])
    echo $k_option['general']['analytics'];
    ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    This is the entire contents of the footer.php in the display theme:

    <?php

    $pageinfo = array(‘full_name’ => ‘Footer Options’, ‘optionname’=>’footer’, ‘child’=>true, ‘filename’ => basename(__FILE__));

    $options = array (

    array( “type” => “open”),

    array( “type” => “group”),

    array( “name” => “Contact Button Line 1″,

    “desc” => “Enter the first line of text to display within your contact button.”,

    “id” => “button1″,

    “std” => “Contact Form”,

    “size” => 20,

    “type” => “text”),

    array( “name” => “Contact Button Line 2″,

    “desc” => “Enter the second line of text to display within your contact button.”,

    “id” => “button2″,

    “std” => “get in touch with us”,

    “size” => 20,

    “type” => “text”),

    array( “name” => “Button Link”,

    “desc” => “Select the Page the button should link to”,

    “id” => “button_link”,

    array( “type” => “group”),

    array( “name” => “Copyright Text”,

    );

    $options_page = new kriesi_option_pages($options, $pageinfo);

    Gosh, I’ve been looking in WordPress using appearance ~ editor and the footer.php displays as I mentioned above but when I look at the footer in CPanel is displays as you said. I’m completely confused as to how footer.php can be different between these two interfaces but nevertheless I have it working now. Thanks very much!
