Genesis Footer Builder


Genesis Footer Builder allows you to customize the site footer just as you want. This plugin works exclusively with Genesis framework.

The plugin provides a comprehensive set of options for building the site footer. Activate the plugin and go to plugin settings page and start customizing the credits text, brand name, copyrights date / duration. You can additionally include privacy policy and disclaimer pages in the footer credits as well.

Brand Name And Date

The plugin also allows you to add a footer menu to the site. So just in case your theme doesn’t provide the support for footer menu, this plugin comes in handy for adding some useful links like Home, About Us, Contact Us, Sitemap etc in the footer.

Footer Menu

You can configure the options and go with the plugin default credits text or you can completely customize it using the Custom Footer Copyrights text-area in the plugin. The Custom Footer Copyrights text-area allows you to use HTML tags, entities and shortcodes. Along with Genesis shortcodes, you can use your own custom defined shortcodes as well. In addition to this, Genesis Footer Builder also provides a set of shortcodes for each of the options you set-up in the plugin.

Custom Copyright Area

In short, Genesis Footer Builder allows you to:

  • Specify custom brand name for use in the footer credits, which otherwise defaults to the site title.
  • Specify the copyright year or duration to be included in the copyright notice. Defaults to current year.
  • Select and set Privacy Policy and Disclaimer pages from the dropdown for use in the footer information.
  • Customize the footer credits text completely (in case the plugin’s default credits text doesn’t work for you).
  • Set-up and display a footer menu on the site.

Adding Privacy Policy and Disclaimer pages

Yes, you read it right. If you want to add Privacy Policy and Disclaimer page links in the footer information, you can do so by selecting the pages from the dropdown and the footer information will display the links.
