Hi dear, to add a page title to your footer you will have to do that using code so that when it is clicked, it opens up a new page. To add an ordinary stable text that you wont need to be updating, you will add it normally.

You don't need to add something you will need to be updating frequently on your footer except if you add a link to a page. The link will be stable while you keep updating the main page. I'm saying this because of the news you talked about and try to have a backup first before editing your php file. Copy and paste  and save it somewhere safe first in case anything go wrong you replace the entire code back the way it was.

Also to add an extra widget you can use the "Text" widget under the widgets menu and turn it to what you want. It depends on what you really want. You caption it and keep updating it or just put a stable thing in it.

To remove powered by wordpress it has been discussed severally. when ever you have a question first type it into the search box above and see, if you don't get a satisfying answer before you should ask about it. Follow this link and carefully read the thread for how to remove it,  read Sir Tony's responses. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

If you need any further help about this just let us know here in this thread. I wish you the best.

Okay dear I see that what you want is completely different from what I thought. When placing a link to your site try to add www. in front or http:// to make it clickable so that someone can easily visit it by a click.

Let's wait for Sir Tony or someone else to handle this situation.

The stuff in the footer is placed there via widgets. It is not always available for all themes but since you are using same default theme as ng44.com then this is what you should do:

In your Wordpress admin, Go to Appearance > Widgets and in the right hand area you will see all the widget locations to which you can add widgets as explained in the ebooks on building with wordpress (make sure you have read them).

The areas are:
- First Footer Widget Area
- Second Footer Widget Area
- Third Footer Widget Area
- Fourth Footer Widget Area

Drag any widget you want to appear into those locations and see where they appear on your site. There are four widget locations. Edit the title of the widget to display whatever caption you want for that area. The clickable banner in the second area of ng44 is just an image linked to a page, to put that you need to use the proper html img code inside a text widget.

This ought to have been asked as a separate topic because its not directly related to your first question but I will just answer here. How did you install the facebook like widget? If you are using a plugin then there should be somewhere in the plugin options where you should be able to supply the link to your own page so that the box will display correctly

@metalog It's better you stop using this slang and shorthand form of writing. As an online entrepreneur it will affect you. When you are too used to it you will see that sometimes you will be making mistakes when posting on your blog with this shorthand spelling style.

Also remember that the way of saying thank you to someone who answered your question includes increasing his rank.

metalog, I wish to add to what Lucy has said. Writing in short form is also against the rules of our dear forum. Always try to write your words in full to prevent getting sanctioned and to say thanks, increase the members rank or Vote Up their posts.

metalog You didnt answer my first question: How did you install the facebook like widget?
And if its a plugin, what is the name of the plugin or the link from where you downloaded it?

Ok. The name of the plugin is facebook by weblizer. I installed it from the plugin section by clicking on add new plugin and then using the search box to search for facebook like. I sas plenty of them but I chose the one compatible with my version of wordpress. Infact I tried about two of them but the results were the same; they displayed the developer's name
