About This File

Website Footer v1.01

This is a plugin which I created quickly to add an footer with a bunch of links and some social media links to my forum and I thought I would share it with the IPS community.

As you can see from the screen-shots, you can add up to 6 different blocks, quickly change the look and feel via the plug-in settings and add your own logo.

Feel free to use or not.

It's free, and you're welcome 😉

What's New in Version   See changelog


The previous version has some serious flaws which only came to light after it was released. It was apparent that this plugin needed a lot more work to be released to the public, so I have re-written a lot of the code with this in mind.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the changes in the new version you will be required to uninstall the previous version first before installing the new one. This is due to the changes in this plugin your previous settings will not be kept and will be removed.

My apologies about that 😞

Main changes and fixes:

  • Fixed: Blocks would revert to the default values if they were empty on save. IPS settings will revert to their default values if there are empty text or text-area strings,
  • Changed: Re-wrote most of the CSS styles for validation, renamed CSS styles and fixed some CSS issues,
  • Changed: Fixed a few issues with the HTML template,
  • Changed: The default Footer colours now match the colours of the default theme,
  • Added: The Footer theme colours can be set to use the default colours of the installed theme (Best match job),
  • Added: Can now turn off blocks via the Plugin Settings regardless of whether of not the blocks have content,
  • Added: The Footer can be set to span full width or fluid width (same with as ipsLayout_container),
  • Added: Turn off the Footer completely for Mobile and Tablets,
  • Added: The bottom block can be set to display on mobile/tablet devices like the other blocks.
  • Added: The social Block can be displayed either on the left or right of the footer,
  • Added/Fixed: If your forum is set to cache for guests, the theme colour changes wouldn't take affect right away. The plugin will clear the Cache on save to make changes display instantly.


Updated for IPS v4.4.2


Fixed a bug which would incorrectly display the YouTube social Media link.

This is a very useful plug-in – very easy to install and very easy to set up.

Very decent of the author to provide it free of charge despite its simplicity.

A couple of queries – firstly although it is possible to set the colours of the social media icons, as far as I can see it's only possible to set a single colour rather than separate colours for each social icon

in the case that I have pasted below, the three icons I'm using are all Twitter colours. I'd like to be able to set a colourful Twitter, a colourful Facebook and a colour for you tube this doesn't seem to be possible.

Also there seems to be a glitch in that the links for the you tube icon and the Facebook icon both go to the same Facebook page even though in the admin CP I have configured the correct links.

I don't know why this is.




Actually I found the gltich




In the original code the highlighted text says "facebook"  Change it to "youtube" and it works correctly.

Just the colours of the icons to sort out now

Very nice for a free plugin and does exactly what it says and is supposed to do.

Would be awesome if it can display widget blocks in every block area.
