The theme that I am using on this website is great. After struggling for a long time, I feel that I have finally found a WordPress theme that I can actually live with. However, the Mission News theme does have one problem; it does not come with a footer widget position. I mean, there is a credibility footer alright, but there is nothing that I can use to make my site appear really professional. So, how do you add a footer widget position on a WordPress site?
