footer menu to display at bottom of page - Montezuma

Hi
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!

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?
tks

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
