    Can someone please help me insert a new div between the "subsidiary" and "siteinfo" divs inside the footer? I need to display additional links across the footer. Thank you for your time!

    I reckon you could consider putting a division after subsidiary (has priority 10) and before siteinfo (priority 20) through using thematic_footer hook and adding priorities between 11 and 19:

    Try something like:

    function extra_footer_open(){
    echo '<div class="extra_footer">';
    function extra_footer_close(){
    echo '</div>';

    Thanks for answering, sowingseeds!

    Pardon my ignorance... how/where do I insert my HTML now? I am getting a syntax error when trying to insert it in my functions file.

  4. there's no need for 2 functions, but put everything on a priority between the 2.... sowingseeds says it is 10 and 20, so 15 should work fine.

    function kia_footer_div(){ ?>
         <a href="#">A link to bacon</a>

    you could also theoretically add a wp_nav_menu there instead of hard-coding. see my menu thread for how to register and add a secondary menu

    Thank you so much, helgatheviking!

    Hopefully, I will find some easy to follow tutorials some day and learn how to take advantage of filters and functions. But right now I am more comfortable with hard-coading. I know it is sad.

    Sorry about the double function!!! Hope the syntax error is sorted.
