Make your own reusable footer block.
Monochrome Pro has a section of white space at the bottom of every page. If the bottom block in our page layout has a colored background, this can look strange. Also, Monochrome Pro does not have a traditional footer section to list your most important links, etc.
My solution is to make a reusable block that will serve as a footer. This faux footer will make sure the block immediately above the footer Call To Action block has a white background. This will improve the look of our web design.
Let’s get started…
Inserting the block into your page
- Login > view front page.
- Edit Page.
- Place your cursor in the page title.
- Click the Layouts button in the top toolbar.
- Choose: Slate Feature Text Columns (three-column layout).
- Reposition using up or down arrows if necessary.
- As you replace the demo text with your own text, remember this section will display on all the pages we’ve made so far.
- You can add text links or even buttons to this faux footer section.
Make your block reusable.
When you’re happy with the content, click the block’s three dot more options button and choose Add to Reusable Blocks.
- Name your reusable block Faux Footer.
- Click the reusable block’s save button and then click the big blue update button to save your block and save your page.
- When the black button appears in the bottom left corner of your screen, click view page.
Add the reusable block to other pages on your site
You now have a reusable block that you can add to the other main pages on your website. To do this…
- Navigate to, open, and edit one of your webpages.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Click the Add Block Plus icon.
- Search for the re-usable block you made, by typing Faux Footer, or whatever you named your reusable block, in the search box.
- When you see the Faux Footer icon, select it.
- When the block is inserted in the page it will look squished, don’t worry. It will look OK when your site visitors view it in their web browser.
- Update your page and move on to add this reusable block to another page.
When all the main pages of your site have a faux footer, your basic site is complete. But remember websites are always a work in progress and if you want your website to be successful, there’s a lot more work you can do.
