By default PHP-Fusion will let you modify the footer from the admin panel. This however displays at the very bottom of your PHP-Fusion site, and if you'd like to instead place a footer in-between your front page content and the bottom of the page, this article will explain that in detail.

Modify the sub-footer include file

Unlike the main footer that is editable from the admin panel, the sub-footer must be manually modified via a footer_includes.php file. Using the steps below I'll walk you through this process.

  1. First if you don't already know how to, familiarize yourself with how to edit a file on my server.
  2. The file you need to edit is going to be relative to your PHP-Fusion installation path, located at /includes/footer_includes.php.

    For me the full path to this file was /home/userna5/public_html/phpfusion/includes/footer_includes.php

    This is what the file should look like by default, basically a bunch of comments but no actual code:

    | PHP-Fusion Content Management System

    | written permission from the original author(s).

    //Add your custom include files for the footer here


  3. Below the line //Add your custom include files for the footer here, is where we will be inserting our own sub-footer data. So you should end up with something like this:

    //Add your custom include files for the footer here

    echo "<center>This is my sub-footer for PHP-Fusion!</center>";

    After you save the file you should be able to refresh your PHP-Fusion website and see your new sub-footer. In the example image below, you can see that I've highlighted where each type of footer is getting loaded from.

    Sub-footer /includes/footer_includes.php
    Site footer Admin panel > Site footer
    Copyright footer /includes/theme_functions_include.php
    php-fusion different footer options

You should now understand how to modify the sub-footer of your PHP-Fusion website, and also where the multiple places that footer text is getting set at.

Hello seri0shka,

Thank you for your question. We are happy to help, but will need some additional information.

What CMS are you using? Are you actually running PHP-Fusion, or are you using WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.?

Can you provide a link to your website, so we can look at the existing setup?

Thank you,
