    I am trying to add a footer element on my website that links to other hidden pages on the website (such as terms of use, privacy policy etc) which I didn't want to put at the top.

    When I add a text element, I can put it in the footer, but I can't link it to any pages.

    When I add the menu element, I just get exactly the same menu option as the top bar which I don't want at all.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

      You can do this by adding a button to your footer from the Buttons & Menus section of the Add list and link it to an external site, a page from your site, a document or an email address.

      To add a button:
       
      1. From the left in the Editor, click the Add icon.
      2. From the Add list, click Buttons & Menus. Click one of the button options.
      3. From the Button Settings window, under Button Text, type a name for your button.
      4. Under Link to, click the field.
      5. From the Link Settings window that opens, click your Link type: Web Address, Page, Email or Document and add your link.
      6. From the Link Settings window, click Done.
      7. Click outside of the button to close the Button Settings window.
       
      A button is added to your site.
       
      Note: To return to Add , click Back to Add from the top of the window. To close Add, click X from the top right.

    Hello

     

    My website is www.londonschoolmaze.com and I would like to add text to the footer and lift the footer higher up as there is a huge blank space between the text and the footer on each page. I have read on this page that it should be possible to drag and drop text on a footer but this does not seem possible for me.

    I do not want the footer to be at the same place on each page.

    Could you please offer some guidance on this ?

    Many thanks

    Coralie

      Hi,

       

      Thanks for contacting Wix support.

      It seems the following text element is keeping your footer from being dragged upwards:

      I have resized the element so it won't extend beyond your page frame limit (the dotted line), and then was I able to drap your footer up. Unfortunately, the footer position will be identical on each of your pages.

       

      Please note, to drag any element into your footer you need to click on the element and check "show on all pages". Only then can you drag the element into the footer.

       

      I hope this was helpful,

      - Daniel M, Wix team.

    Lina,

    When you add a text box, click on the box and you will see an option to check a box next to the words "Show on all pages". Once you do that, you can drag the text box to the footer. Hope this helps!

    Hi there,

    I am not able to add text to my footer. I need to add my copyrights statement and there seems to be no option of adding text in my editor page footer. I tried the alternative of adding a text box to the middle of the page and then dragging it to the footer but that messed up the entire layout and the footer kept going down.

    Please help!
