Please see go to footer and you cant see widget links in footer.

Because you have the same color as the background. Use this:

.footer-widget-area .widget,
.footer-widget-area .widget a {
   color: #fff;

This is great although could I still have links change color on hover as they where?

Sure, add this too:

.footer-widget-area .widget a:hover {
    color: #ff6b53;

Perfect! Thanks Vlad
