It is standard to keep contact information in the first footer column; however, if you don’t have content for the other columns, consider removing the gray footer altogether and moving your contact information into the right sidebar. Adjustments to the gray footer are simple.
- Go into the dashboard.
- Click on Appearance at the bottom left.
- Select Theme Options.
- Click on Footer.
- Under Footer Columns (the first option), you can adjust how many columns you would like. To remove the footer entirely, select None.
