Footer same as sidebar - how to remove/fix this?

  1. Hello,

    I was playing around with Appearance > Menus, and I am not really sure how, but I ended up with a massive footer a the bottom of my blog, containing exactly the same information as the side bar (recent posts, recent comments, archives, categories, meta).

    All I wanted to do was to add a second menu bar (home, about, class slides, resources, contacts), the bottom of the page as well but I must have done something wrong...

    Is there a way to reverse this and make it so that I won't have that massive footer looking exactly like the sidebar?

    Or is this perhaps a feature of the free theme that I chose, and I am only realizing this now?

    I have searched on the internet for support on this, but I was unable to find an answer. My apologies if I am asking a silly question, or a question that has already been asked.

    Thanks!!

    The blog I need help with is startingmyownwebpage.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi @sofiagmontreal,

    That looks like a hiccup with your widget areas.

    Your theme seems to support 3 footer columns, but as you might guess now, all your widgets got squeezed into a single column.

    You can fix that by going to Appearance > Widgets from your Dashboard, and reordering your widgets into the different footer columns as you like.

    Does that help?

  3. Yay!! Thank you so much for your help, it worked! :)
