What is the proper process for setting a page up with a link to it in the footer?

Currently, all my pages are in Appearance -> Menu...and of course displayed in the main menu.

However I want a batch of them to be in the footer.

I have decent HTML,CSS, PHP skills but new to WP.

What exactly do you want to do? Place a menu in the footer or one link? – Miha Rekar Oct 11 '12 at 19:16
In the footer I want one link...about...when you click it I want the page to be displayed in the same way it would if you clicked a menu item....you know in them main display area. – user14432 Oct 11 '12 at 19:38

What may be easier (if you don't necessarily want all the same menu items to appear in the footer) is to:

  • Create a new menu, "Footer Menu" for example
  • Add-in whatever links (pages) are needed there
  • Add a widget (called Custom Menu) to a footer widget position (if your current theme supports it).

Let me know if that helps. Thanks!

Thanks...I have footer sections...can you send me a link to the plugin you are referring to. – user14432 Oct 11 '12 at 20:10
I didn't mention a plugin. I mentioned adding a navigation menu widget to your (updated answer to the exact name). No plugin needed. – Zach Oct 11 '12 at 20:37
I have 4 footers...wonder why...wonder how I'm suppose to know which one to use. – user14432 Oct 11 '12 at 21:40
Theme only supports one menu...don't know what that means either. – user14432 Oct 11 '12 at 21:40
Thats what he said, you have to create a new menu in admin. Then add this menu (via Custom Menu widget) to the footer widget position. – Miha Rekar Oct 12 '12 at 7:37
