Customize Footer

Postby walterdovale » Wed Mar 13, 2013 12:46 am

How do I put a footer like this this website (not the default footer configured through the system): ... ndif/index

It would be equal to this footer on the green theme.

In advance, thanks for the help.

Was there an answer for this? I'd also like to replicate the type of footer that the original poster linked to. I've been trying to accomplish this through CSS, but it's proving exceedingly difficult for me (I'm a novice).

It seems to be that the problem is right now the footer is confined to the "main" div well, rather than outside of it.

Hi all,

The site you've linked to has modified a couple of template files. In particular, the order of DIVs has been changed in lib/pkp/templates/common/footer.tpl.

For this footer:
We modify two files: the file templates/common/footer.tpl adding at the very end, the following lines (around line 26):

<div id="divPiePagina">
<p><strong>&#169; Asociaci&#243;n de Archiveros de Castilla y Le&#243;n, 2014</strong><br>
Desarrollado por <a href="">DataLib Servicios Documentales</a> empleando software libre <a href="">Open Journal Systems</a></p>

Then modify the file styles/sidebar.css

#divPiePagina p {
font-size: 12px;
float: left;
background-color: # C00;
Color: #FFF;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif, Arial;
width: 90%;
height: 70px;
margin-top: 200px;
padding-left: 100px;
padding-top: 15px;
line-height: 15pt;

Surely it is not the cleanest and simplest way to do it but it works ;-) And It's very similar to the OJS you sent
Hope you helps. Greetings!
