Create a footer using Elementor

Although the standard version of Elementor does not allow you to create a custom footer this is actually pretty easy to achieve. There are three steps.

Step 1: Install Anywhere Elementor

Anywhere Elementor is an excellent free plugin which allows you to create Elementor sections – and display them, well, anywhere.

After installing it you’ll see a new AE Templates section. Click Add New (name it anything you like) and you’ll be within Elementor’s editor. Create your footer using the Elementor page builder.

When complete you’ll have a custom shortcode you’ll need to remember. In my example it was: but yours will be different.

Step 2: Add a little bit of custom code

You’ll need to add a custom function to display your newly created Elementor template in the footer. There are two ways to do it.

  • Add it into the functions.php of a child theme. We have a child theme ready-made can use. Do not add it to the main theme code.
  • Or, use the Code Snippets plugin. This is really handy.
Remember to change the shortcode ID in this code to your own!

Step 3: Hide the default theme footer

Finally, you’ll need to hide the theme’s standard footer. Go to Appearance > Customize > Layout > Footer

Hide the Footer and Copyright options and save.
