Footer Credits – Compatible Themes and Hooks

This is all about the location of the footer widgets. If a suitable widget area exists then just drag the widgets into that area. If not, then you will need to enter a Footer Hook on the Footer Credits page, and only then will you be able to drag the widgets into the footer.

Here we include our recommendations as where to include the Footer Credits Widgets for each WordPress theme.

The answer is either to use an existing widget area, or to create a new widget area at the specified hook.

The list will grow over time…
