    Hi, I have a site that I just updated that’s using the Enfold theme. Before I updated WordPress and Enfold, the modifications from this post https://kriesi.at/support/topic/6-columns-in-footer/ worked to add an additional column in the footer. Now, these modifications don’t work. Do you have an equivalent solution for the new update?

    Hey bythepixel,

    Can you give us temporary admin access to your website in the private content box below, so that we can have a closer look?

    Best regards,
    Victoria

    Hi bythepixel,

    You have so many files in the child theme. Do you keep them updated when updating the theme?

    Best regards,

    Recently… No. I just recently updated. This website was handed down to us, and I’m not sure why there are so many files haha. Do you think that not keeping those updated could be the issue?

    Hi,
    Thanks for the login, following the steps in the link you provided the code in your child theme footer.php is incorrect and you are missing the includes > admin > register-widget-area.php from your child theme, with it’s added code. Once you make these corrections it will probably work correctly.

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Hi Mike, I tested this out again. I saw the modifications from the previous developers in the child theme files: register-widget-area.php, register-admin-options.php, and footer.php and assumed that the modifications in the child theme were working to make the six columns. Upon closer investigation, it appears that the footer column modifications in the child theme never worked. The previous developers made those changes to the parent theme files and those changes were wiped out when the theme was updated.

    I redid the steps to create six columns, but I can’t seem to override the include files in the parent theme. Can you help me out with that?

    Hi,
    I took a closer look at this and unfortunately you will have to edit the parent theme. While some files can be added the child theme functions used to point to them, the includes/admin files can not.
    This is why the original instructions are for editing the parent theme and probably why your developer ended up doing the same.

    Best regards,
    Mike
