I'd like to have 3 footer columns in my theme. The problem: I can't specify that 2 widgets (a text widget and a social icons widget) appear in the left column one under the other. The theme puts them in 2 separate columns, thus displaying 4 footer columns. How do I solve this?
Thanks for helping out!
I think this particular theme is using flexible footer widgets, meaning there is one sidebar, and the columns and rows are determined by the number of widgets. So there likely isn't a way to place two widgets in a column together. Does the social icon plugin that you are using offer a shortcode to output the icons? If so, this could likely be placed into the text widget along with text.
Thank you for your feedback! It's the Studiopress Simple Social Icons plugin, which has no shortcode option, unfortunately.
I solved it temporarily by replacing the flexible footer with the the classic 3-widget footer.
If someone else has a solution for placing 2 widgets underneath each other in the flexible footer, I'm all ears!
No problem. Using the classic footer sidebars is probably the best solution if you want to be able to stack items. This type of issue never crossed my mine. I switched back over to the classic footer sidebars in a theme I am working on.
