H. ADDITIONAL CHILD THEME FEATURES
We have added some exciting and powerful new features to our child themes and are very excited about them.
THE ASPEN FOOTER EDITOR
Aspen Footer Editor is an ultra-lightweight, yet powerful tool that allows you to easily edit your Divi or Extra website’s footer information (copyright). With this feature, you can add custom footer text and change the color, size, hyperlink, and even add images & videos! The best part? All of this is done within a simple to use WYSIWYG editor just as if you were editing a post or page.
Once inside the Aspen Footer Editor’s dashboard, you will be greeted with a familiar sight: the standard WordPress page/post/WYSIWYG editor. Within this editor, you can add and style text, insert hyperlinks, add dynamic dates with the included shortcodes, and even insert photos/embed videos. Once you are finished styling your footer, simply click ‘save’ and you’re all done.
THE CUSTOMIZER SETTINGS
The Customizer Settings Feature allows you to customize the button settings, the color of the links and more.
