Most websites use a standard combination of features for their headers and footers. Longview supports many of these combinations by providing up to three rows of content in the header and three more rows of content in the footer.
By default, there is a single header row with the site title, site description, and menu.
However, this can be easily expanded by using the three header widget areas. First, there is a widget area above the main header.
There is also a widget area below the main header.
Finally, there is a widget area that replaces the default header menu. In the example above, a text widget with no text has been placed in this widget area to displace the default header menu. In the following example all three widget areas area in use.
By default, the footer displays a single row with only the copyright info. There is also a footer menu position defined in the theme, much like the header menu position. If there is a menu assigned to the footer menu position, it will be displayed in the single footer row as well.
Just like the header, there is a widget area above the main footer row. As you can see, the widget area supports multiple widgets. In fact, each widget area automatically detects how many widgets it contains and splits the widget area into columns accordingly (up to 9 columns per row).
There is also a widget area below the main footer row.
If the widget area inside the main footer row contains a widget, that widget replaces the default footer text and menu, as seen in the screenshot above this paragraph.
Finally, all three widget areas can be used at the same time.
