Update the Footer on Pioneer

Pioneer’s footer offers a large, full-width newsletter call to action followed by additional sections with the primary navigation, some “about” content, contact information and the copyright. It’s not possible to add additional sections or widgets to the Pioneer footer.

Note: Social media icons for Pioneer appear in the header and not the footer.

  • If you’ve selected “Yes”, you’ll then use the dropdown to find and select your Privacy Policy page to be sure the link that appears in the footer goes to the correct page on your site.

Update the Footer Newsletter Signup

  • At the bottom of the Customizer’s Footer Settings menu, you’ll find the settings for your e-newsletter signup.
  • Use the Yes and No radio buttons to decide whether you’d like to show or hide the newsletter signup section.
  • If you select “Yes” to show the signup form, you can then enter in a heading and some descriptive text for the signup form using the appropriately labeled form fields.
  • Finally, you’ll need to make sure your signup form is connected to the proper form in Gravity Forms, each of which contain a number. You’ll be able to see all of your active forms, along with each corresponding form number, in the “Forms” section of your website.
  • Be sure to save your changes by clicking the blue “Publish” button at the top of the Customizer sidebar menu.
