Can I add footer to Lifestyle theme?

  1. i'm considering purchasing the Lifestyle theme but am in need of footer widgets. If I purchase the customization upgrade, would it be possible to add these?

    The blog I need help with is beonlinemagazine.com.

  2. We cannot edit templates or themes. If the theme is not coded to provide footer widgets areas then purchasing a custom design upgrade and CSS editing won't achieve that. Please read this entire section and note the following:

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. You can choose to apply your custom fonts or custom stylesheet to any of the themes available on WordPress.com. Some themes, like the plain but versatile Sandbox and Toolbox, are blank canvases waiting for your custom fonts, CSS and images.

  3. You can't add widgets where they don't already exist using the custom design theme. Custom design only lets you modify what is already on screen.

    However, the Lifestyle theme already has built in footer widget areas! So I think you'd be all set if you picked Lifestyle. :)
