A footer area is a horizontal area provided by a theme for displaying information other than the main content of the web page. Themes may provide one or more footer areas below the content. Footer areas usually contain widgets that an administrator of the site can customize.
In a theme, footer areas are generated by a template file, typically named sidebar-footer.php.
