Designing and Coding a Site Footer

A web site page is generally divided into the header (uppermost section), the body (the middle area where most of your content goes), and the footer (the lowermost portion usually containing a banner rotator (for your advertising banner rotation), important links (such as important site areas, your privacy policy, and your site’s terms of service (TOS)), web site credentials (top site list badges, etc.), site credits, and a copyright notice.

On your genuine ShiftCode based get paid to site then the default template footer area looks like this (lowermost section):

screnshot#1557 - 'Paid To Site - Members - Register'

In the ShiftCode web site template editor (Files & Templates (lower right menu) > Templates) the header and the upper portion of the body content coding is contained in the upper editing portion called ‘Main Header’ while the lower portion of the body content and the footer coding is contained in the lower edition portion called the ‘Main Footer’ as seen below:

screnshot#1558 - 'Paid To Site - Admin - Templates - UltimateG_'

As you may know already, the main template contains code and doesn’t have a textarea (plain WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing mode)  If you’re not that familiar with editing code then perhaps you should leave it up to your chosen design template designer and/or coder.  if you are going to be attempting to edit the footer yourself then we highly suggest that you make a backup of the entire template (both top and bottom) before you start modifying it.

The default template footer code starts in the bottom ‘Main Footer’ editing area beginning with the code <div id=”footer”> and ends with a closing </div> statement.  Your footer content typically goes between these two HTML statements.

Here’s a pretty universal copyright and disclaimer statement in code:

<p align=”center”>&copy;{~$|date_format:”%Y”~} {~$} – All Rights Reserved -<br>All product and company names
are trademarks&trade; or registered&reg; trademarks of their respective holders.<br>Use of them does not imply any affiliation
with or endorsement by them.</p>

This above code will yield this below statement
(though with your own site name and the current year):

©2016 Paid To Site – All Rights Reserved –

Use of them does not imply any affiliation with or endorsement by them.
