Add Links To the Footer of Wordpress Theme

7 replies
Hey Warriors,

I am using twenty tenth theme for my Wordpress site and wanted to add some links to the footer in horizontal manner. But I am only able to do that in a vertical manner.

Can someone here help me out with this. This is my first website ever and this is a DO or Die situation for me. Actually a last chance for me.

If anyone knows how to add some links to the footer of Wordpress please let me know and all those who don't know about it.

Thanking You,

    Individual themes often have different ways to do what you're asking. You might consider doing a search for footer links with your theme, or even see if there is a forum for it.

    I know this is not what you are asking for, but WP Policies plugin creates most all the policy pages you need, and puts the links to them in a footer on your blog.

    Head over into your panel...

    Click "appearance" , "editor", then look to the side and you will see footer.php..

    You'll see a code like this one

    <a href="">WordPress</a>
    That's where the footer links are.

    If you're using TwentyTen, then here's exactly how to
    have horizontal footers without messing around with
    the footer.php code...

    From your Admin panel, go to Appearance > Widgets

    Down the right hand side, you'll see places for the
    Widget Areas of the theme.

    Drag and drop the Text box from the Available Widget
    area into the First/Second/Third/Fourth Footer Widget
    Area holders on the right hand side.

    Then enter the text or HTML into the widgets, click
    save and then you'll see your content appear in the
    footer areas of your theme.

    Dedicated to your success,

    By "vertical" I assume you are talking about trying to put there links using the 'footer widgets' (there are 4 of them and basically they would create 4 columns in your footer.

    If you want to put links on the horizontal line - where you blog title + the powered by WP is displayed - then you need to edit the footer.php:

    - find this:
    HTML Code:
    <div id="site-info">
    				<a href="<?php echo home_url( '/' ) ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home">
    					<?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?>
    				</a> PUT YOUR LINKS HERE
    			</div><!-- #site-info -->
    - put your links where wrote "PUT YOUR LINKS HERE"

      Not very good at this stuff yet, but this is what worked for me.

      I just went to the appearance tab,

      then editor,

      click on the footer

      My template had a link to wordpress on it that looks like this, I can't post links yet, so this isn't exact
      <a href="htp://wordpress dot org/">WordPress</a>

      replace the url with your url and whatever you want the link to say

      hit update

      look on your page and it should be changed
