WordPress theme Twenty Twelve is missing footer widgets. To insert the widgets, you can use the method below:
- Create a child theme first. If you’re not familiar with it, you can use this guide as reference: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
- You need to create a function file under your child theme and then add this to functions.php which will register the footer widgets [codebox 1]
- Again, create a footer file in your child there. In the footer.php, you need to add the following code under the line :
<footer id="colophon" role="contentinfo">[codebox 2]
- Finally, add this to child theme style.css[codebox 3]
This will provide you 3 widgets in the footer area. Enjoy!
