Social Media Buttons in footer

I am new to WP but progressing nicely with the Sydney theme!

Can I add a widget to the main footer? I want to add my social media buttons (SiteOrigin Social Media Buttons) to the footer so they will appear on every page of my site. I will gladly purchase the Pro version of the theme if it can do this. I also want them centered and with very little top and bottom padding.

Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, you can add any available widgets to footer widget areas in wp-admin > Appearance > Widgets.

That puts another footer above the existing footer. I want the buttons in the existing final bottom footer.

Hi,

There you can only add by custom coding the icons in the footer after or before the copyright text in footer.php file. The widgets you can only add to existing widget areas, anything else can be done with custom coding.
