Add a Footer to Your Blog

Add a Footer to Your Blog
There are many uses for a footer at the bottom of your weblog. Many people use it to place copyright information, add a link to the web designer or to the main business that sponsors the blog. In this tutorial, we will add a copyright footer to our blog. This is just for teaching purposes. I am not a lawyer and you will want to use your own copyright text in the footer for your own blog. Log into your BloggerTM account.

  1. Click on the Template tab and Edit Current at the top. On the template that we are using for this series, Blogger has made our task easier for us by adding an empty footer section which is just sitting there waiting for you to add your own footer content. Scroll down to the bottom of the template code and your will see the empty footer section.

  2. As you can see, Blogger has also added a CSS style for the footer text that will set the text to a smaller size and center it at the bottom of the blog page. So, all you need to do is remove the message code that is between the opening and closing <p> tags and replace it with your customized footer text. If you want to break your footer text on more than one line, you can use the HTML break tag <br> which will force the text to end on one line and continue on the next line.

  3. Preview, save and republish again. You may need to refresh your blog webpage in your browser to see the changes.
