footer menu to display at bottom of page - Montezuma
I am using Montezuma theme, and am having trouble getting the footer menu to show in the footer area. Somehow it's showing up on the right side along with the other widgets that I have there, ie. calendar, etc. I want the footer menu to be unique and need it to be horizontal. Please help. thanks in advance!

Where did you put it and with what code

I did not put the code anywhere. I created a custom widget and named it footer. Then I went to menu and selected "footer" from the drop down menu. I almost feel that the menu is not clearing the div for right side bar; or should I include more code to have the footer to show up at the bottom footer area?

I'm working locally for now. In order to create the menu, I added a custom menu to the widget area (by dragging to the right area), and then selected the "footer menu" from the drop down.

When I preview the website, on the right sidebar, I see the calendar, categories, etc., and right below it, the footer menu is showing up there, instead of showing up (horizontally) at the bottom, footer area.

I am not looking to duplicate the header menu, I just want a footer menu with a few items, but to show horizontally on the footer area and not on the right side bar as is now.

Thanks in advance.

so let me see if I understand.

You created a custom menu and called it 'footer',
you then added the 'custom menu' widget to 'Widget area one' which shows as a sidebar
you selected the footer menu
you can't understand why it is showing in the sidebar area

(1) the 'custom menu' widget styles things different than the top menu area
(2) horizontal menus are created using the 'wp_nav_menu()' function (see the virtual template header.php for and example)
(3) you will need to add code to the virtual template footer.php

Thank you, Juggledad

I borrowed the code from the header, and when I pasted on footer.php, the menu shows a little below the nav, but not in the footer like I wanted. Do I need to create a new "DIV" or use same type of clearfix code? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

<?php wp_nav_menu( array(
'container' => 'nav',
'container_class' => 'menu-wrapper col7',
'container_id' => 'menu1-wrapper',
'menu_id' => 'menu1',
'menu_class' => 'cf menu',
'theme_location' => 'menu1',
'fallback_cb' => 'bfa_page_menu'
) ); ?>

well for one, you should change the names of the container id and menu id so they are unique

Why not put a simple html menu in the footer setting of Atahualpa. Here is some code: <div style="text-align: left; padding: 0 0 0 10px;"><a href="http://www.somedomain.com">Home</a>&nbsp; | &nbsp;<a href="http://www.somedomain.com/">Some Name</a>&nbsp; | &nbsp;<a href="http://www.somedomain.com/">Some Name</a>
&nbsp; | &nbsp;<a href="https://www.somedomain.com" >Some Name</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="http://www.somedomain.com">Some Name</a></div>
