Creating Template Footer
Theme file footer same as the header. In header we include header information and in footer we are including footer information.
To create footer file, you need to create
footer.php file. This file contains common footer information of the web site we are creating. Assume we have one footer for home and another footer for pages. In that case we can create two footer files. Because WordPress let us create any number of footers but need to include relevant one in relevant place. We can create one footer file as
footer.php and other one as
footer–v1.php . Where you calling
footer.php you can just called as
get_footer(); and when you’re calling
footer–v1.php it should be called as
get_footer('v1'); Are you wondering with keyword of the
get_footer() is a WordPress function which let us include our footer file. WordPress manage to include correct file according to our request. So, we have nothing to worry about and WordPress cares all about.
Lets code our footer.
Now you have created our footer file. Then navigate to
index.php and include
get_footer() within PHP tags. Code should be like
<?php get_footer(); ?>
. This will includes the content in
footer.php file into
Hope you all done. Now our
index.php page should look like this.
<?php get_header(); ?> <!--/ Middle Content --> <?php get_footer(); ?>
