Update the Footer on Scholar

Scholar’s footer offers a section to highlight “about” content, followed by your primary navigation links, contact information including social media links, and secondary navigation buttons. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to add additional sections or widgets to the Scholar footer. Below is a screenshot of what the Scholar footer looks like.
