How To Add a Three Column Blog Footer

Are you worried of your sidebar full of ads? overstuff?  well, maybe it’s time to add a footer to your blog. I will teach you how to install a three-column footer.

How To Add a Three Column Blog Footer
Login to your Blogger account (if you haven't done so already).
Go to Template > Edit HTML.
Back up your template.
Look for the existing footer code near the end of your HTML. It might look something like this:
<div id='footer-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footer' id='footer'/>
if you already have contents in the footer, the code should be longer.

Copy and paste the code below immediately under the footer</div>. This code will create 3 new gadget containers (one for each column) under the existing footer container.

<!-- three column footer HTML Start by -->
<div id='new-footer-wrapper'>
<div id='column1-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='new-footer' id='new-footer1' preferred='yes'/>

<div id='column2-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='new-footer' id='new-footer2' preferred='yes'/>

<div id='column3-wrapper'> 
<b:section class='new-footer' id='new-footer3' preferred='yes'/>
<div style='clear: both;'/>
<!-- three column footer HTML End -->
Copy the code below and paste it in CSS section, before ]]></b:skin>.
/* three column footer CSS Start by */
#new-footer-wrapper {background: #E1E2B8; margin: 0 auto;width:98%; padding: 0 10px  10px 0;} 
#column1-wrapper, #column2-wrapper, #column3-wrapper { float: left; display:inline-block; width: 33%;padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; text-align: left; word-wrap: break-word; overflow: hidden;}  
.new-footer h2 { margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; padding: 4px 10px 4px 10px; text-align: left; color: #222222; background: #C1C298; font-weight: bold;font-size: 0.9em;} 
.new-footer .widget { margin: 10px 0 0 10px; border: 1px solid #F1F5CA; background: #F7FCDF;}
.new-footer .widget-content { padding: 0px 5px 5px 5px; } 
.new-footer ul { list-style-type:square; margin-left:15px; }
/* three column footer CSS End by */
Save the template and go to Layout. You should have the 3 empty footer containers added at the bottom of the layout.
