  1. I have to say you provide the most clear tutorials for your themes. This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thank you so much for all your step by step directions.

      Thank you so much Serena! When I started out with WordPress, I knew absolutely NOTHING about it, so I try to make sure that if I was reading these way back when, I would be able to understand! Thank you for your kinds words!! <3

  2. Thank you Courtney,
    Your are my savior, really save me from another sleepless night.
    I had been trying to change my six footer widgets to three widget for almost 3 hours, none happened. Desperately I googled this and finally found you 🙂

  3. Thank you so much, I had problem with my News Pro theme. Because it comes with 6-footer widget. The reason it does not fit properly widget. My problem was resolved with this tutorial.

      Thank you! I’m so happy that this was helpful!

  4. If you reduce this to one footer widget will that span the whole footer or still be a more narrow “column?”

    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Hey Tom! That will actually span the whole width of the footer unless you go in and make further modifications to the CSS to make it smaller.

  5. Wow! This was exactly what I needed for our foodie blog. Thank you so much!!!

  6. Hello!

    I have the Adorn theme with the standard one widget footer. I have made the adjustments for a three widget footer, and it went well (thank you so much!) except the three widgets are each spanning the entire footer space (in doing so they are “stacking” on one another). I would like to have the three widgets align next to each other instead of the said “stacking” (for lack of a better word) effect. The width is set to 33%, but it appears as if it is 100%. Any help is appreciated! Thank you so much! 🙂

      Hi Natalie,

      I will need to see a link to see what is going on 😉

      1. Hi!

        I’m sorry, it is http://www.southernbelleglitz.com. 🙂 Currently, I do not have it set up the way I want it, because it looks a bit off with the full width. However, I’ve put two text widgets in the footer widget area so that you can see what I am talking about.

        Thank you so much!

          Natalie, first and foremost… gorgeous site!! And second, I’m seeing the widgets at the bottom side by side. You may need to refresh your browser a few times to see the updated code that you added.

          1. Thank you so much, Lauren! It’s all due to your beautiful theme! I tried viewing the website in another browser and it works just like you said (I’m now tidying it up in Chrome instead of Safari). 🙂 I apologize for the trouble! <3

            Oh no problem at all! I’m happy to help!

  7. Exactly what I was looking for, thank you! Just a consideration, you may find the CSS3 “flex” property is easier to work with rather than floating these elements.

  8. Hi! Is it possible to remove the copyright paragraph at the bottom of the theme layout?

  9. Or, is it possible to edit the HTML code for the site so that I may edit the copyright line on the bottom of the theme layout?

    1. Restored316 says:

      You sure can! We have a tutorial right here that explains how to do this.

  10. Thank you so much, I had problem with my News Pro theme. Because it comes with 6-footer widget. The reason it does not fit properly widget. My problem was resolved with this tutorial….

  11. Hi Lauren,

    I was searching for this piece of cake thanks for sharing footer widget adjustment in genesis theme.

  12. Ive tried to fix this but still isn’t working for me. I can adjust the numbers of widgets but still not showing side to side. Maybe you can help me? My website: http://www.iolie.nl

      Hi Marije,
      I recommend reaching out to your theme developer to see if they have code that is over-riding the Genesis settings.
