How to Make Footer Increase in Width in Blogger

In previous tutorial I have told you how to expand Blogger Header the width of the Browser. Now apply this same rule to increase the Blogger footer section the width of the browser.

Let's have a tutorial.

1. Go to Layout > Edit HTML. Backup your template.

2. The footer has 660px in width and may be different for other templates, so we need to increase this width. Find this section of code in your template:

#footer {
border: 1px solid #000000;
width: 660px;
margin:0 auto;
padding-top:15px;
line-height: 1.6em;
text-transform:uppercase;
letter-spacing:.1em;
text-align: center;
}

Replace it with:

#footer-wrapper {
border: 1px solid #000000;
width: 950px;
margin:0 auto;
padding-top:15px;
line-height: 1.6em;
letter-spacing:.1em;
text-align: center;
word-wrap: break-word;
overflow: hidden;
}

The changes are high-lighted in bold.

2. Add a new property just before #footer-wrapper section:

#footer-expand {
background: #333333;
}

3. Find this section on your template and delete it:

<div id='footer-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footer' id='footer'/>
</div>

4. Find the ending of the outer-wrapper. In an example of Minima template, it will be:

</div></div> <!-- end outer-wrapper -->

And just bellow it add the following codes:

<div id='footer-expand'>
<div id='footer-wrapper'>
<b:section class='footer' id='footer'/>
</div>
</div>

You can change the background color of the header and footer sections by changing the hex value #333333 according to your chosen hex value. And you can also add images to it, like:

#footer-expand {
background: #333333 url(your hosted image);
}

Now preview your template and save it.

So you got your footer customized and styled and increase the width of the Blogger template footer section across the browser also. Now style it accordingly.

To be Noted:
This works only with layout templates.
