Hey all
I am using a commercial theme and I placed the pages widget into my web site’s footer so that they  are all listed.  I also need  to move my Facebook icon from the header of my website  to the footer and I need to make some edits in the footer content.  How do I do this?
Please help

Check if there are any widgets in your footer theme. If you do have widgets there, then  you can place the Facebook icon in a widget. As for editing the footer content, you need to search your theme’s file and locate the footer code and edit it accordingly. Or you can make use of a plugin that edits footer such as http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-headers-and-footers/
