    What is the difference between, Secondary widget area, first footer widget area, second footer widget area, third footer widget area and fourth footer widget area. Without having to keep going back and forth to see what I have done?
    Is there any easy way to know and understand these different footers and how they relate to your page?

    Thanks

      Normally they are just names - the first secong - etc are in the side bars and the footers across the bottom in the footer, of course.  I can only think they do this so that you can keep track of them - it would appear to be possible to just stack them up in one widget area in the side bars.

      No there is no easy way. Working with a new theme is usually very hard for me for the first week. Then I figure it out and I can work fast. Every theme has its own quirks and it's hard to generalize.

    Most Themes are different from each other. I've never seen a theme that has all the widget areas you seem to have with that theme.

    So you just have to figure out what each one is for. I've only seen one footer area in all the themes I've worked with.

      Thanks Bill, I'm not saying i have them all, its the differences between them i wanted to know, and how they relate to your page.

    usually footer widgets will be left to right 1-4

    secondary usually refers to widgets that dont appear on the front page or only on select pages

    but it is designer/theme dependent

    You mention "back and forth"

    i usually keep the homepage open in one tab or window

    and the admin page in another


    make the edit then just f5 the other tab
