The latest default WordPress theme is Twenty Fifteen, a lovely blogging theme that makes a bold statement in terms of breaking away from familiar blog layouts.
There’s a fixed sidebar to the left that turns into a header in mobile view, a minimal footer area, beautiful typography and nice featured image area.
The theme is quite impressive, but understandably users still want to customize it and make it their own.
I’ve just come across a Twenty Fifteen user who asked to display widgets in the footer area. However, this theme only offers one sidebar (which is a widget-ready area in WordPress language).
Adding a widget area to the Twenty Fifteen footer is not different from adding a widget area in most WordPress themes.
