  1. Hi regarding customising the twentyfifteen footer, great tutorial, is there a way of also intergrating mobile phone view, so the 2 columns become one, at the moment the 2nd column appears under the first but with an indent spacing on the left?
    thank you Melanie

    • Hi Melanie,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your mark. To adjust the footer styles for the mobile view, you need to add media queries. Something like:

      @media screen and (max-width: 600px) {
      selector {
      float: none;

      If you leave the link to your site, I’ll be able to be more precise with the screen width (my guess is 600px but this can be fine-tuned) and with the selector.
