    i’m curious what the WP/dev community thinks about widgetizing footers.
    i’d like to use some sidebar functionality in my footer.
    there always seems to be a couple ways to work in WP, but is there a standard practice in this case? thanks,


    “Sidebar area” is an outdated term for WordPress. It really should be called “Widget area”. Widgetizing footers is common place. In fact, you can widgetize an entire site if you want.

    Two good videos to watch:
    Jeremy Clark: Widgetize Everything
    Rindy Portfolio: Step Up to the Sidebar: Making the Most of Widget Areas
