How to activate the Extended Footer module
To activate the Extended Footer module, please go to your admin area and from there go to Appearance > Theme Dashboard. Once you're here, locate the Extended Footer module and click on Activate.
To add an extra note of creativity to your website, use the footer separator feature that's part of the Extended Footer module. Locate this feature by going to Customize > Footer > General > Separator.
Use the toggle to enable the footer separator and then choose your preferred style.
After you've enabled the footer separator, you'll notice how it shows up on your website:
There are also plenty of styling options for your footer separator if you would like to adjust the height, width, or colors. You can see these options in action if you look at the overview video that's found at the beginning of the article.
The background image covers your entire footer, including the footer separator (if you chose to use it). It's easily configurable from Customize > Footer > General > Background image. You just need to select your image and configure an overlay color.
Footer reveal effect
Located in Customize > Footer > Footer Widgets, this option makes your footer stay fixed so that gives the impression it is revealed from underneath your website when you scroll down to it. Configuration is easy: you just need to enable the effect and choose the devices on which you want to display it.
Extra copyright area elements
New elements are available for your copyright area if you choose to activate the Extended Footer module. These new elements are Shortcode, HTML, and Menu. Simply enable them for either the left or right column of your footer. You can also rearrange them with ease by drag and drop.
If you enable one of these options, their respective configuration fields will show up automatically:
This area shows up right before your footer and can be used to display a call to action, a contact form, or a subscribe form. You can also use HTML.
This section is basically divided into two columns. The left column lets you add a title and some text while the right column can be configured to display a shortcode, HTML, or a button.
The Style tab provides some important styling options that let you easily design your pre-footer area.
This is an example of how the pre-footer area can look. You can see more if you watch the overview video found at the beginning of this article.
