I just sent an email with the screenshot…..I am also heading to sleep (1am here), so I wanted to send the screenshot before I do that.
As for the screenshot, I just did a rough estimate of what I was referring to in my previous post in the forum about your menu and footer area….I wasn’t sure if you were looking to have the background where the copyright and footer menu with a background colour. IF so, check the screenshot.
It’s best to keep the copyright and footer menu where they are but you can probably customize this easier than what you were trying with the widgets. Basically to add a menu above but in the same area where you have your current copyright means coding in a new widget position.
