Unless there are widgets added to the widgetized areas, the only thing the footer will show is the copyright text.
You can add widgets in the standard WordPress manner: by going to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Widgets’ in your WordPress Admin panel. To change the copyright text please go to ‘Theme Options’ in your WordPress Admin panel.
You can find more detailed instructions in the User guide.
I’ve started using the widgets, however it’s impossible to get it looking like your demo.
First of all, the headings don’t match at all, no matter what H tag i use, and the spacing is all wrong.
Secondly, the subscribe section is only available with mailchimp and not jetpack, and you cannot have the same setup as your demo page – you also cannot edit the email field, or the button font.
I followed your guide, but it is not showing as per your demo. The jetpack blog subscribe block isn’t available.
It would be great if you could outline how to get the footer as per your demo?
The widgets are actually WordPress terminology. But I agree with you that may be confusing at times.
As fot the widgets set in the demo, I’ve just made a screenshot of what exactly there is: see screenshot.
So you actually don’t need to insert any H tags yourself. WordPress will do it.
And as for the subscription widget, it may be that it’s not activated in Jetpack settings. They were always activating it by default, but maybe that has changed. I’ll check. Anyway, please go to ‘Jetpack’, scroll to the bottom and click ‘modules’ (screenshot), then please activate the ‘Subscriptions’ module (screenshot). After that the Jetpack Blog Subscriptions widget will become available.
